receiving guidelines

In logistics, receiving provides the setup for all other warehouse activities, so problems related to receiving affect the entire operation. In order to provide the best experience for you, Materialogic utilizes a methodical, repeatable, and scalable receiving process. We believe in continuous improvement throughout our organization and that philosophy applies to our Receiving Guidelines as well. This allows the inbound operation to make better use of resources and move inventory as efficiently as possible.


By following the guidelines, you will help Materialogic provide expedited service levels for your receiving needs, be able to ship to customers quicker and will avoid unnecessary charges, errors and delays.
