Your Partner for Elevating Warehouse Logistics Performance
Warehouse Management & Design
Warehouse Management is a critical component to a supply chain. While the basic functions of warehouse management fundamentally remain the same, the complexity has substantially increased along with increased globalization, advanced manufacturing, and changes in consumer behavior & online shopping.
The basic functions of Warehouse Management include the inbound receiving of product, storing products, picking & fulfilling orders, and preparing orders for outbound shipping. The scope of service ranges depending on product type, customer needs and expectations, and the requirements of various stakeholders throughout the supply chain.

How a warehouse operation is designed significantly impacts performance and can be the difference between succeeding or failing to meet your customers’ expectations and budget goals.
Designing a warehouse operation successfully requires collaboration and starts with input from the customer. Initially, a Sunland Solutions Engineer balances input factors such as forecasted volume, SKU profiles, additional value-added services, and customer requirements to determine optimal material flow, storage methods, material handling equipment, staffing, and systems solutions.
Goal: To learn about your business & collect scope information for design input
Categories of information to determine scope include:
- Product description
- SKU profiles
- Customer requirements
Preliminary Design Phase
Goal: To create an optimal warehouse operation design concept and pricing solution proposal based on provided scope parameters and customer requirements.
Outputs of the design include the following solutions:
- Material & information flow
