Storing and tracking products are critical steps in the order fulfillment process. Finished products are typically stored in warehouses or distribution centers before being shipped in large volumes for commercial customer orders or individually for end user orders. Products that move through the warehouse should be handled carefully to avoid injuries and maintain product quality.

At the end of this module, you will be able to:

  • Describe the fundamental steps of receiving, storing, and loading a product for shipment
  • Identify basic personal protective equipment (PPE) that may be required in a warehouse environment
  • Identify and describe common safety hazards in a warehouse environment
  • List and describe information that may be found on bulk product labels
  • Describe the principle of "First In First Out"
  • Describe the purpose for and contents of a bill of lading
  • Describe how automated storage systems function

The following key questions are answered in this module:

What is the purpose of warehousing product?
Warehouses provide space to sort and store product prior to it being shipped to a customer.

When in the storage and shipping process are labels applied?
Labels are applied to product as it is received in a warehouse so that it can be tracked during storage and shipping.

What does FIFO stand for and how does it apply to warehousing?
FIFO stands for First In First Out and refers to a common method for storing and retrieving products in the order that they were received.

What should be listed on a bill of lading?
The bill of lading applies to a truck or railcar and should include the date and location of loading, the products loaded, the carrier name and the destination of the load.

What type of label is commonly used to automate tracking of a product?
Tracking labels applied to products often include a printed barcode with a universal product code number that can be read by a laser scanner.

Below is a transcript of the video sample provided for this module:

Finished products are typically stored in warehouses or distribution centers before being shipped in large volumes for commercial customer orders or individually for end user orders. Storing and tracking products are critical steps in the order fulfillment process. Most facilities will have procedures and equipment in place for warehouse personnel to receive and immediately ship products, or store products for shipping at another time. Regardless of equipment, inventory management software or policies, most facilities will follow these fundamental steps for managing products: one, receiving, including sorting and labeling, two, storing, three, loading, and four, shipping.
