Do you ever rent or buy an x number of bread crates and bread carts last minute because you have a shortage? These are unnecessarily high costs and cause high blood pressure, which could be prevented. Prevention is better than cure, so make sure you always have enough bread crates in stock! You can read how to do that in this article.
Always know what you have in stock
Make sure you know exactly how much of each type of packaging is available. It sounds simple: know how many Broban bread crates and dollies you own. However, it’s often hard to keep track of the numbers of crates and dollies when they leave your bakery every day to deliver bread and pastry products to various locations.
Of course you keep track of everything, in Excel or a shared Google Docs file, but this does not provide a real-time overview. Not for you and not for your transporters and customers.
