Now is the time to utilise the space you have available in the most efficient manor to save unnecessary spending on more storage systems and space. Thinking logically about the way you can store your stock can really help you to do this.
It is not uncommon for warehouses to become untidy and disorganised. However, it is not a big problem to solve. This blog will look at some possible areas to focus on:
Using racking properly
Ensure that you are utilising all of your pallet space within your pallet racking. Check that you have utilised all beam levels to store your products in the most efficient way. You can easily increase storage capacity while at the same time reduce used floor space.
Although it sounds obvious, it is worth mentioning. Grouping products together in categories is a good start but ensuring that each item is clearly labelled will also help speed things up for employees looking for specific products. It will also minimise the risk of wrong items being shipped.
Regular checking and monitoring of the condition and running of the warehouse will help ensure that issues do not become overwhelming. Keep an eye on the way the warehouse is maintained and check that procedure is always followed.
While these three points are not the most adventurous ideas they are overlooked by many warehouses. Organising your work space will help your warehouse work more efficiently and improve working conditions for everyone.
