Several options can be adopted for the appropriate handling of the packing materials. They are:

Things One Should Know Regarding Warehousing

In any business, Supply Chain plays a major role in running it. Supply Chain Management is to supervise the string-like processes in which expertise, materials and information are used to supply the goods to the customers. Warehousing is a part of Supply Chain Management. 

Warehousing means securely storing the goods of the company in a cool and dry place. It is about maintaining an inventory where raw materials are stored after purchasing from the supplier and finished goods are stored before being distributed to the retail markets.   

● Difference Between A Warehouse and A Distribution Centre 

People always use Warehouse and Distribution Centre words as synonyms which is outrightly wrong. A Warehouse is a storage structure where raw materials and finished goods are only stored whereas, a Distribution Centre is a facility where these goods are systematically picked, packed and shipped. 
● Components Of A Warehouse 
Numerous components have to be planned for better and more effective management of inventory and movement of goods within and outside the warehouse. 
1. Planning The Size Of The Warehouse 
As warehouses store heavy items like machines or bulky goods, they must be spacious enough to allow free movement of goods. Proper planning has to be done to make maximum use of the space. 
2. Temperature Regulated 
The warehouse must have suitable facilities as per the goods stored. The warehouse must be airy and dry to avoid any foul smell.  If the warehouse is storing food items, then it must be furnished with a temperature-controlled system.  
3. Accepting Shipments 
Once, the shipment of goods arrives, the working staff accept these shipments and makes necessary entries.  
4. Careful Storage  
The warehouse storage is divided into different sections for raw materials, semi-finished goods and finished goods. The arrived goods are carefully stored as per their categories. 
5. Efficient Organization 
The inventory of the warehouse must be organized and assorted systematically. As and when new shipments arrive, the staff has to make sure enough space is available to store them. 
6. Keep a Record Of The Inventory 
The inventory of the shipments that arrived and departed must be tracked and recorded. A proper Inventory System must be managed well which will help in knowing if any changes are required.  
7. The Departure of The Shipments 
This is the last function. Items that are leaving the warehouse must be packed shipped and recorded. 

● Importance Of A Warehouse 

1. Bulky Storage 

Be it eCommerce or physical retail business, have to store the goods in bulk quantity. It helps in meeting the everchanging demands of the customers as and when required. 
2. Can Be Outsourced 
A business can either have its Warehouse or can outsource this service from a third party. As a result, a team of professionals handle this process effectively and the cost of warehousing gets reduced. 

3. Stored At Tactical Locations  
The warehouse must be located at those points in different nations that will make the delivery of goods to the customers quick and easy. It also reduces transportation costs.

Tips & Tricks To Arrange Your Makeup Products

Which girl doesn’t like makeup? They are love! The collection of different brands of makeup is every girl’s hobby. But organizing them is not that easy. A shabby makeup kit creates a lot of confusion. This can make it tricky for you to access the items as and when required.  

Some makeup items’ casings or bottles are fragile. Keeping them messy can lead to breakage or spillage. When they are arranged systematically, these issues can be avoided. Hence, the shelf life of these products increases and they can be easily accessed. 

But how to keep them organized? Here’s the solution! 

Following are the tips that will give you an idea of how makeup products can be arranged systematically. 

1. Throw Away Expired Products  

The first thing you should do is check the product's manufactured year and the shelf life. If any of these products are expired, chuck out all of them. Avoid using expired or spoilt makeup products as they can cause allergies and harm your skin tone, causing skin diseases. 

2. Drawers, Boxes Or Pouches For Storage 

Makeup must be kept in a dark and cold place, away from sunlight and dust. Drawers have ample space to store all the makeup products. Make various sections in the drawer where different makeup items can be kept. 

Drawers protect these products from specks of dust and sunlight and keep them cool. Thus, spoilage of these products can be prevented. 

In case, you do not have a drawer, store makeup products in wooden or plastic boxes as they shield them from dust. If such boxes are not available, then use pouches or pencil cases to store these products. Pill Boxes can be used to store eyelashes. 

3. Labelling Benefits 

Makeup products stored in boxes or pouches without labelling can create confusion. For example, if we are in a hurry and want a particular coloured lipstick, we will have to check every box or pouch to find it. This time-consuming process can cause irritation.   

Labelled boxes and pouches as per the products can be time saving and easily accessible.  

4. Brushes In A Holder 

Different makeup brushes are available for eyes, lip and face makeup. These brushes can be stowed in a holder that has different sections to keep them separate. Make sure to regularly wash your makeup brushes and sponges to avoid any bacterial infection or allergies. 

5. Group Items As Per Their Brand, Use and Colour 

Makeup products should be grouped into any of these three sections: 

1. Brand 

2. Colour 

3. Use 

Lipsticks and Nail Paints should be stored as per their colour making it easy for you to reach them. Makeup products like pallets, blushes, and foundations can be stored together as per their brand.
