WHY IS WAREHOUSE LAYOUT IMPORTANT?

Warehouse layout and design is the foundation on which businesses operate. Creating operational efficiency from the ground up will ensure a business is set up for success.

Efficient warehouses set high-efficiency standards. These standards help the business run smoothly and creates room to adapt and modify operations as needed.

Even if a warehouse is considered to be operating efficiently, there may be room for refining and identifying opportunities for improvement, which can instantly boost performance and capabilities.

In addition to creating a more effective workflow, warehouse optimization has significant financial benefits. Often, businesses lose a substantial amount of money due to mis-ships, out-of-stocks, returns, and human error – all which can be connected to inefficient processes. These can all be avoided through optimized workflows and adjusting existing processes.

OUR APPROACH TO WAREHOUSE DESIGN

When a warehouse reaches approximately 85% capacity or a business is evaluating costs and seeking more efficiency, warehouse space planning can be the solution. The first step is to evaluate and consider the options – and that is where MHS Lift can help.

VERTICAL EXTENSION

Expansion may be a consideration, but it may not be necessary. We evaluate the potential of building up.

OPTIMIZE AISLE WIDTH

After evaluating lift equipment and use, it may be possible to decrease aisle width by up to 50% thus gaining more space.

PICKING PATH ANALYSIS

Picking paths and use can be analyzed to ensure the paths and process are effective or if they can be refined.

MEZZANINE INSTALLATION

Building up and installing a mezzanine can greatly increase space and overall storage capacity.

STORAGE OPTIMIZATION

Evaluating racking solutions is key. For instance, a change from a single-deep rack to a double-deep rack may optimize the space and make it more efficient.

TECHNOLOGY IMPLEMENTATION

For some, new and innovative technology and warehouse automation may be an optimal solution.

Warehouse Automation

Warehouse automation is one of the most effective ways to manage the costs – specifically in the long-term – and increase profits. Automation and warehouse technology implementation can reduce labor demands, improve accuracy, and create efficiency. Warehouse automation includes software, automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS), and automating a variety of other operational functions. Interested in warehouse automation?
