Whilst pallet racking and shelving may seem static, there is nothing static about the trends sweeping the industry. This highlights the need for a flexible or an adaptable system.
Challenges that a warehouse may come across are peak periods or unpredictable booms in popularity. Think about the time that Princess Kate wore a dress and then it became sold out online almost immediately. This has led to the coined term ?The Princess Kate Effect?. Pretty much anything she wears becomes sold out instantaneously! The retailers need to to cope with this unpredictable demand but are still expected to deliver on every level. If you don?t have flexibility in your warehouse you can be making the work even harder for yourself.
Having a flexible warehouse means you will require a mix of systems for different pick rates. For example it may be useful to have adjustable shelving for slower moving items and carton flow racks which offer a greater density of pick locations within a short distance. A good choice would be boltless versions so they can be quickly and easily reconfigured.
