In many organizations, particularly manufacturing companies, there is a distinct division of responsibility between receiving and shipping. Goods being received are controlled by the purchasing manager, while goods to be shipped are controlled by the traffic manager. Unfortunately, however, in too many cases there is poor communication between the purchasing and traffic departments. As a result, there is a tendency for receiving department personnel to have a life full of surprises—such as trucks showing up without notice to the warehouse manager. When such surprises provide substantial unloading volume, they can be seriously disruptive to the warehouse work schedule.
