5 Ways to Optimize Warehouse Storage for Your Company
Our clean, dry, fireproof facilities can store almost anything. Our well-trained team keeps your items organized and takes routine inventory so that you always know what you have. In addition to these steps, we implement the following strategies to optimize your warehouse storage space:
Maximize Vertical Storage
Many storage companies store items in large, tall warehouses but do not utilize vertical storage. We use a rack system to make the most of our space. This system can store items like computers, files, and oddly-sized items. Additionally, this system helps us keep your items organized and take accurate inventory.
Contain Loose Items
When preparing your items for storage, you may have materials that do not fit in a set category. Containers help keep these items in one place and prevent them from getting lost or damaged. Containers can also help organize items that already have a box. Instead of throwing items into one container, use smaller containers within a larger one to make them easier to find.
While storing your items close together may seem efficient, this can cause important materials to get lost and may force you to waste time looking for an item you need. We organize your valuables to ensure everything is visible and that you always know what you have. This way, you can reorder items only when necessary.
In addition to keeping items visible, labeling everything makes items easier to locate. Labels also help our team organize all your materials and group related ones together. We provide the supplies you need to label all your items and find the ideal way to arrange them in our warehouse so you always have easy access whenever you need them.
Reduce Safety Stock
Many businesses keep overstock in storage in case they sell out of an item, but this can occupy a lot of room in a warehouse. Our professional and knowledgeable team can discuss your safety stock needs with you to potentially minimize the amount and make room for other important items or save you money on less storage space.
