Excerpt from Cotton Handling Guide for Warehouse Managers and Foremen Studies and observations at cotton warehouses and compresses of almost all types have shown that in nearly all of these facilities many opportunities exist for increasing the efficiency of handling methods. Moreover, there is much evidence to indicate that in most warehouses the savings that might be made through the improvement of handling methods, or through the reduction or elimination of wasted or idle labor in handling cotton, are very large. Some of the savings already obtained by warehousemen through adoption of improved handling methods, either as a result of recommendations based on the Department's research, or on their own initiative, have proved substantial. As more efficient handling methods are adopted, and as their use is further extended throughout the cotton warehouse industry, the greater the total savings in handling costs that will be achieved. In the long run, the savings derived from increasing the efficiency of cotton warehouse han dling operations should tend to result in increased benefits not only to cotton warehousemen but also to producers, shippers, mills and other segments of the cotton industry, and to the consumers of cotton products.
