Why should Management and Overhead Expense per Case be measured?

Management and Overhead Expense per Case measures the total distribution overhead and management-related expenses (salaries, utilities, etc.) incurred by the company in relation to the number of cases or pallets delivered over the same period of time. High values for this metric can be indicative of management overstaffing, general inefficiencies within distribution management processes (e.g., inaccurate demand forecasting methods, poor tracking of distribution center employee performance, poor inventory management, etc.), and sub-par distribution manager performance. While companies typically seek to streamline operations and managerial positions to reduce expenses in the Distribution Center, the overall number of managerial positions should be balanced with the level of management being provided, as the quality of management may impact employee productivity and company operational efficiency.
