How to Label Warehouse Racking

Warehouse racking labeling is quite simple! Specific warehouse rows need to be labeled with their weight capacity per square foot. Furthermore, they must be organized by how the product is inventoried. Because each pallet rack has a different weight limit, it is very important to check the manufacturer's safety instructions. 

Let's go a little deeper! First, you must be able to correctly identify all warehouse racks, also called units or sections. It may seem basic or like common sense, but this is necessary for a functioning warehouse. Your labeling should be done primarily through SKU numbers, which is a very easy way to ensure that each section is organized. This is especially important if your warehouse consists of many varying sizes, products and materials. 

No matter the size of your racks, you always want to make sure they are organized from the ground up. The lowest row should be labeled with a low number, such as 01, and then numerically increase as the rows go up. This ensures simple memorization and identification for all those involved. Think of it like how a grocery store labels its aisles. You simply need to find the row number you require and proceed from there.

Finally, you want to be careful in choosing your type of warehouse label! All variables matter in determining the perfect label. Look into the temperature, levels of moisture, weight of products involved, etc. Consider consulting a professional to determine what brand of label works best for you! 

Checking for any kind of damage is crucial. You must be aware of possible damage in all aspects. Whether by the design of the overall rack, the installation, etc. You should also be aware of your personal equipment's maintenance. Do not attempt to modify the rack or go radically past any cautionary limits involved. Any changes you want to make should be done with the help of a professional who knows what they are doing. Make sure that each rack and label are well-spaced from one another.
