Sometimes it feels like no matter what you do, you?re always running out of space.
Pallets get stacked high, aisle ways get crowded, inventory gets out of control, and you?re probably getting anxious just reading this post. All is not lost, however, and you don?t have to think about moving into a bigger facility every time you start getting pressed for available warehouse space.
Instead, there?s a few simple things you can do to make sure your warehouse is using all of its space as effectively as possible, and how to get there without breaking the bank. Next time you feel a little claustrophobic in your warehouse, ask yourself the following questions:
One of the easiest ways to reduce clutter and use your space in the most useful way possible is simply to look up. Most fire regulations allow items to be stacked up to 18 inches below the smoke detectors and sprinklers, which should give you a lot of extra room in most warehouses, even ones with a shorter overhead. Invest in some taller pallet racks or cantilever racks to help you stack products more vertically, and make sure your employees learn to use this space with new, incoming shipment.
There?s going to be a little math involved with this one, but cubic space can be easily calculated and used as a metric to determine space usage and remaining space. This can be done by adding up the volume of all products in your warehouse currently and then dividing that total by the warehouse?s overall storage capacity. This will provide a percentage number that tells you how much of your space is being used and can provide guidance as to what steps to take next and how to use the rest of your space as effectively as possible.
A lot of places simply can?t stack vertically due to the sort of product they stock or how it needs to be stored. Installing a mezzanine is a good way to provide more work space without renovating the entire warehouse, and can also provide additional storage over other work areas.
