Do you know if your warehouse is working towards its full potential? The first step to running an efficient warehouse is to make sure that every square inch of space is utilized appropriately. If you have not already, you should invest in pallet racks as a storage solution.
Pallet racking has four major components: uprights, beams, row spacers and pallet supports. Similarly, there are four primary reasons why you should use pallet racking as a storage solution for you, your warehouse and your business.
You Can Build and Store Vertically
In past decades, the common warehouse had less than 10,000 square feet available. Now, according to www.wh1.com, the average warehouse unit begins at 25,000 square feet. That may sound like plenty of space available, but it fills quickly. How do you begin to optimize that space without running out of room?
With pallet racking, you can store shipments, equipment and other materials vertically instead of horizontally. Stacking takes advantage of available vertical space, which saves the ground floor for warehouse procedures, heavier equipment and your employees. No matter how high your ceiling is, you can rely on pallet racking as a storage solution.
You Can Organize and Reduce Clutter
It is vital to keep pathways clear for forklifts, other moving equipment, and employees in any warehouse. Disorganization, clutter and other stray objects can hinder procedures or, in some cases, cause a workplace accident. Pallet racking keeps items organized so that your warehouse can keep running efficiently and your employees stay safe.
You Can Customize Pallet Racking to Suit Your Needs
A solution should be as unique as your warehouse and your business. No matter your wares, there is a pallet racking solution available for you. There are many different types of pallet racking available for you to use, including teardrop, drive-in, cantilever and push-back pallet racking. At Port City Industrial, we sell them all and more.
