stock control check
backlog of orders
increase in volume
Our warehouse staff worked overtime to perform a thorough stock control check last Saturday. Unfortunately, they discovered a serious backlog of orders. This backlog had been brought to their attention by sales staff who had dealt with a number of complaints from retailers. Warehouse staff suggested a number of improvements, as well as additional staff in order to handle the increase in volume that the company was experiencing in retail demand.
