The Warehousing Education and Research Council's (WERC) latest educational offerings allow industry professionals to work on strengthening their distribution management skills from home (or the DC).
WERC has developed five online courses focused on warehouse activities and planning: "Careers in Distribution," "Pallet Storage Systems," "Reverse Logistics: the Basics," "Cycle Counting," and "Supervising in the Warehouse." In cooperation with the Logistics Institute of Canada, it has also designed two broader classes, "Warehousing & Distribution" and "Inventory Management."
In addition to these educational offerings, the organization has also posted videos of a number of presentations from its 2007 Annual Conference, including "Optimizing the (Smaller) Warehouse," "Rack up Savings with the Right Slotting Strategy," and "What You Need to Know About Financing Material Handling Equipment." Courses are priced from $45 to $135, with the exception of "Careers in Distribution," which is offered for free.
