Efficient shelving is crucial in a warehouse because it directly impacts the productivity and profitability of the business.
With proper shelving, items can be easily located and retrieved, reducing the time and effort required to complete orders. This leads to faster turnaround times and increased customer satisfaction.
Warehouse shelving can also improve safety in the warehouse. When items are stored haphazardly, they can fall or become damaged, posing a risk to workers. Proper shelving ensures that items are stored securely and safely, reducing the likelihood of accidents or injuries.
2-3 Ways to Improve With Shelving
Re-Profile Shelf Levels
For example, the shelf levels may have a spacing of 24" but you are storing product that only has a height of 8". If it is a box, well then you can stack it. However, if it's a product that can not be stacked then you should consider re-profiling the levels to eliminate the wasted space.
Add Another Level
If automation is out of the question, a Shelf Supported Mezzanine may be the answer. To be clear, you can't just "add another level." Our team would need to engineer the system designed specifically for your application. Check out the video below to see an example.
