Your warehouse or industrial facility should be considered a production element and not just a building to house your product storage or production elements.
Design it to be productive and efficient with all its available space. Everything should be in its correct location and easily accessible. Your warehouse storage ideas and goals should not be limited by an outdated racking system.
Don’t let your employees be hindered by inefficient storage rack systems, forklift traffic problems, noisy machinery, dust, and fumes or unnecessary clutter. You can’t afford to have a poorly designed shipping and receiving department lacking in needed office space.
Planning the use of available floor space, storage rack space and how that space is used will ensure efficiency and keep the overhead costs down with maximum production.
Improper pallet storage can be one of the greatest space robbers of product storage space in your facility.
With product coming and going, constantly being sorted and rerouted, it is no wonder that this area can be found with large gaps of floor space and cluttered or with pallets that don’t nest well in racks as designed.
Before you set up a pallet racking system, review your product, the paths it will take and the equipment needed to move it safely.
In most warehouse storage situations, your target goal should be utilizing 88% of your available storage rack space. Trying to gain more pallet storage than this will require more aisles, thus lost storage space. A lower percentage of used rack space will produce honeycombing or racking half empty pallets. The result will be storage racks that are full but are storing only half the product efficiently.
