At Florida Warehousing and Storage, we can help you with packaging or kitting your products. This will lead to reducing your shipping costs and streamlining your business.
Streamlining your supply allows us to save your production line costs while increasing the availability of your products. Kitting is a system that creates pre-packaged and pre-labeled parts to organize products that are similar to each other. Kitting can be used in just about any business model. It’s all about organization. The more organized you are the better off your company will be. The following are additional benefits of utilizing a kitting replenishment program for your company.
What Are The Benefits Of Warehouse Kitting Replenishment Programs?
Kitting services are executed by compiling the individual parts of a product together into a kit and delivering that kit to the production operation team for assembly. Companies that provide these services have the knowledge and experience necessary to ensure accuracy in inventory and order pulling for warehouse and inventory management among other important aspects of the supply chain.
Letting manufacturers compile their own parts can be time-consuming and inefficient. Thus, we can manage these tasks in a way that prevents errors, avoids lost or misplaced parts, and general disarray due to volume. Kitting services are able to streamline the entirety of the system by using time effectively, leaving none of it to waste. Searching for parts or preassembly work is no longer necessary, since the job is outsourced. This leads to an operation that runs smoother, faster. The following represent the advantages of our kitting services:
Benefits of Kitting Services
Kitting services provide companies with many benefits such as a reduced number of purchase orders, reduced administration costs, better utilization of space, faster production cycles, faster response to customer orders, and more. The following items are additional benefits to companies.
An advantage of using kitting services is that items are processed in bulk instead of individually when each order arrives. For companies that manage their own order fulfillment, outsourcing this process will benefit them greatly, save them money, and streamline this process.
Fewer Shipping Mistakes
Items that are shipped in a kit form have a reduced likelihood of error within the order fulfillment process. It also allows companies to pre-print shipping labels, which eliminates the need to weigh and label individual items.
You can save at the post office by using kitting services as it provides more efficient and cost-effective packaging. For example, instead of packing individual parts into a standard-sized box, use a custom box for popular kits to reduce the size and weight of the packages.
By replenishing your kits with us, your business can save itself a tremendous amount of time. Processing parts for your kits could be a long process and would need an efficient way of handling this task. With our program, you can ship your kits to your customers without having to worry if they will receive it on time. One of the key benefits of kitting services to Lean Manufacturing environments is freeing up space. Kitting services allow producers to devote more floor space to production by shifting inventory of components. Costly creating space to store components, packaging, and waste is antithetical to the ideals of Lean Manufacturing. Growing producers need to expand production, often moving the component materials off-site, allowing the extra space required while avoiding capital-intensive expansion projects.
Kitting reflects a kind of intake process in the manufacturing environment. Logistics kitting organizes and also assembles components that are used in manufacturing a product so that they can be shipped to the point of use, saving time on site. In reality, it’s also the best example of Lean Manufacturing, reducing unnecessary production time. These two kitting types are not mutually exclusive, because they combine production and logistics. The latter is carried out in a low-cost warehouse, such as a third-party logistics provider (3PLs) who manages, prepares, and delivers just-in-time ( JIT) material to suppliers.
