As a warehouse owner, you want to find ways to maximise your available space, without spending extra on extension and renovation jobs. When expansion isn’t an option, what can you do to make the most of your warehouse?
Clean Out the Clutter
Most of the time, warehouses have more space than they appear to. In fact, they often have a lot of free areas once they have been tidied up. Consider tidying and de-cluttering your warehouse before deciding whether you need to undertake a more radical renovation.
Go over your inventory and old records. Which ones can you dispose of or store elsewhere? You are going to find things that you no longer need as you clean up, and you’ll be surprised at how much clutter your warehouse holds. Imagine what you can do with the space you free up.
Keep the Inventory Visible
When you store your items in containers and arrange them in racks, it can look like you’ve optimised the space. But, there is, in fact, a lot of wasted space in those bulky containers. Try using smaller storage units that take up less space, or opt for racks that have built-in compartments and drawers to store smaller items in your inventory. This allows you to find the items more easily.
Use the Right Storage Systems
You may think that wide shelves and racks that take up a lot of floor space will help you make the most of your warehouse. While they may hold a lot of items, they don’t necessarily maximise the floor space. Warehouses need storage solutions that allow for smooth and flexible operations. This means that in addition to providing sufficient space for your existing stock, they should also have the potential to provide extra space when you need it.
Units that can be assembled and moved easily and are designed to last for years are ideal for a dynamic warehouse. You can find them here at Containit Solutions.
