Inventory Security

What does Inventory Security mean?

Inventory security is the process of ensuring the safety and optimum management control of stored goods. It is of central importance for optimum warehouse management because the performance of a company stands or falls with the safety and efficiency of a warehouse.

This is particularly true in the food sector, where a best-before date management system should ensure that no perishable or safety-critical goods are present in the warehouse. But stock security also plays a central role in other areas - for example in technical wholesale. Inventory security aims to prevent inventory losses - for example due to incorrect storage, theft or incorrect incoming goods inspection - so that the correct stock is always available.
