Unlocking Efficiency: Supercharge Your Business Operations with Warehouse Optimization

What’s the most common mistake that businesses make when thinking about optimizing space in their warehouse? Waiting too long to do it!

Time after time, companies contact MHS Integrated Solutions to evaluate their warehouse space and operations after their warehouse has already become inefficient – they have zero open pallet positions, leaving no room for additional product, or access to product is blocked because there are pallets in aisles. Now, they’re forced to hire a third-party logistics company and rent additional warehouse space – a costly option. Or, businesses won’t order inventory because they have nowhere to put it, impacting their shipping performance and bottom line.

It’s a vicious cycle – trying to work around your warehouse’s inefficiencies without dedicating time to resolve them becomes extremely expensive and puts your warehouse at risk of becoming inoperable.

MHS Integrated Solutions helps increase productivity and operational efficiency for businesses across North America.

Our nationally recognized team of experienced, creative engineers is dedicated to helping our customers achieve an optimized warehouse flow. To achieve this, we need to first understand our customers’ products and get to know their business. Andy Levin, MHS Lift Co-President, says asking questions about their goals and pain points is an important part of this process.

To get a full understanding of the business operations and space, MHS engineers perform a facility site tour and gather critical data on inventory by SKU, order profiles, operational hours and more. From there, the MHS team develops options and devises a customized plan.

“We recently helped a customer who was out of space but had wide aisles to fit the large forklifts they were using,” Andy says. “We transformed their warehouse by switching them to a narrow-aisle setup, allowing them to store more product and navigate the aisles with more appropriate and narrow equipment.”

“We’ll work with customers to refine a warehouse plan until it’s perfect,” he adds. “As it takes time, it’s best to create a plan before businesses run out of room.”

Warehouse optimization helps businesses:

  • improve productivity
  • reduce operating costs
  • maximize capacity
  • improve safety and ergonomics

If you’re already thinking about it, it’s probably too late.
