Warehouse Practices - Putaway KPI Measures

Best practice facilities coordinate deliveries and outbound shipments through cross-docking to support reduced handling and movement in the effort to meet the ever growing need to balance lean inventories with ultra-fast delivery. The metrics that are typically used to measure putaway effectiveness include:

  • Percent of delivered lines requiring internal label creation

  • Lines Received and Put Away Per Hour

  • Dock to Stock Cycle Time  (total elapsed time from start of unload to placement in putaway location)

  • % of orders cross-docked

  • % of putaway tasks that require a location over-ride

  • % of Inventory Count Variance incidents

  • % of Pick shortage incidents
