For anyone who owns a company with a large warehouse at the centre of operations, choosing the right warehouse racking system will play a vital part in if the company succeeds or fails. The racking system has to fit into their business, not fit their business around the system. The racking system needs to ultimately make things easier for the company but also be adaptable for future needs and growth.
There are a number of factors which need to be considered before choosing the system. You need to consider how you want to store your items and what is the best way to suit your business. First and foremost you will need to decide if you want to go with a FILO system, FIFO system, livestorage etc. You need to look at the turnover rate of products, look at your most popular products and decipher the most efficient way to store them.
You also need to look at the amount of goods you want to store. You will need to identify different opportunities and methods such as push backs, pallet flow, drive in, narrow aisle etc.
Another consideration you will need to look at is how much space you have to work with to see which will be the best option for you and the best use of space. You may find that you also have a need for a mezzanine floor so you have all your offices upstairs and your storage downstairs. You really need to analyse your space and see how you can truly make it work for you and maximise its potential. After all, you are paying per square footage so effectively everything above ground level is free… why would you not want to use it?!
You need to identify the best method which will allow you to maximise your space whilst working in-line with the processes of the business and how you will be picking your stock.
