“Flash Sale” discount campaign that challenges Warehouse Management

“Flash Sale” discount campaign that challenges Warehouse Management

Cheap and good do exist

Can’t deny that before we choose to buy one product, we often have to compare quality and price between each brand to get the best product at cheaper price. That’s why stores use promotional strategy to compete with each other. Even marketplaces frequently use discount or as we called “Flash Sale” to get customer’s attention.  

Customers like us often choose to buy products during the Flash Sale, whether it’s noon, midnight, or discount campaigns launching monthly. That’s why orders tend to be overflowing from time to time.

Customer’s loving it but challenging for warehouse management!

Launching Flash Sale campaign means limited time for customers to buy products which also means limited time for delivery as well. That’s why warehouse management and logistic process need to be performed quickly and discreetly.

Of course, when there are too many orders at one point, it is difficult to control and probably leads to problems
such as

  • Order Management

Warehouses will face too many orders to manage during flash sale campaign which may cause order mismanagement and unable to make on-time delivery.

  • Delivery capability

Logistic problems may arise from drastic increase on number of products need to be delivered while there is less delivery time. Thus,  warehouses need to plan out the suitable delivery capacity.

  • Inventory Management

As the number of products to be stored increases while there is less storage time, warehouses must find suitable way to manage their inventory and improve their storages for maximum efficiency.

            Despite all these problems, there are still solutions as long as customers still enjoy purchasing products during Flash Sale and entrepreneurs still want to increase their sales volume. What entrepreneurs need is to prepare suitable inventory management procedures to support different sales volume within each month.
