On a daily basis, a warehouse is a busy place full of people constantly moving products. Organising your warehouse has plenty of business advantages, one of which is that it has the potential to optimise overall operations.
A typical warehouse will have a multitude of items stored inside it on any given day. The first step in organising this space is choosing a storage system that works for your business. With most business owners installing pallet storage systems for inventory purposes, making use of mesh cages for product and equipment storage further organises the space.
Here are just some of the advantages of using these mesh cages in organising your warehouse for efficiency.
Safer Equipment and Product Storage
Safety plays a big role in warehouses because of the heavy machinery typically used in these spaces. However, product safety and security are also critical as these are the items that generate income for the business.
Mesh cages are made with durable metal that provides the necessary protection in keeping your products safe and secure. The strong material they are made of make them difficult to bend and break, lowering the risk of damage often associated with handling and transporting.
Better Inventory Control
Inventory control aims to maximise profits with minimal inventory investment. This requires keeping very tight control of stock by not over stocking but always making sure stock is available.
Warehouse operators can easily check the items stored inside mesh cages because of their open design. Compared to opaque storage containers, mesh cages lessen the time and effort spent on inventory checks because the products are more accessible.
Smoother Mobility and Handling
A storage container’s usefulness is not just found in its ability to keep items; it should also be mobile. The never-ending movement of people and products in a warehouse can be the root of different operational problems. Delays in deliveries can result from products being difficult to transport. Additionally, damage caused during transport can result in dissatisfied customers and refunds.
The durability of mesh cages ensures the safety of the products inside. Moreover, these cages are designed with either stillage or pallet feet to make them easier to handle, transport, and stack. There are entry points in the bottom of these mesh cages so that forklifts and pallet jacks will have an easier time picking them up for transporting. All of these contribute to smoother, risk-free handling.
Versatility and Adaptability
Mesh cages come in various sizes that can cater to your different storage needs. They are also easily stackable and are relatively low maintenance. Their versatility to take on different uses and their adaptability to your current needs make these mesh cages practical organisational tools as you continue to work on optimising your warehouse.
