For most businesses, when they start their warehouse they start with a few pallet racks. Then they expand to a conveyor system. Maybe later they add a warehouse mezzanine or a prefab office. Over time, your warehouse space accumulates more and more equipment. But is it the right equipment? Is the equipment you have in place now actually slowing down your warehouse and holding you back from achieving more? It’s time to find out, and DAK Equipment & Engineering can help you with the process.
It’s Time to Evaluate the Equipment You Have…
When you slowly accumulate warehouse equipment over time, you are likely doing it in order to meet a need that your warehouse had at the time. Maybe you need more pallet racks or your need more office space for your administrative team, and perhaps those needs have changed now. It’s a good idea to periodically evaluate the equipment that you are using in your warehouse to see if it’s still really doing what you need it to do. Maybe you aren’t bringing in as many pallets now and need to make room for carton flow racks, or maybe your old conveyor belt system is gathering dust.
…and Make Space For New Optimization
Once you’ve evaluated your current supply of warehouse equipment, you can determine what stays and what goes. By getting rid of warehouse equipment that no longer meets your needs, you are making room to optimize your space. You’ll be able to get the shelving and automation systems that you actually need in order to speed up your processes and complete orders faster. A periodic review of your current equipment gives you a chance to optimize both your layout and your process so you can maximize your profits.
