Industrial shelves are a great additional to your Chicago warehouse, but they won’t do you much good if you aren’t keeping them clean and organized. Industrial shelves shouldn’t be treated as a “catch-all” for items that no one wants to put away properly. Treating them like this can leave your warehouse a disorganized mess and slow down your production. DAK Equipment has tips to help you keep your industrial shelves organized:
- Use shelf labels. Make sure that each shelf of is clearly labeled with its purpose and what should be on there. Be strict about ensuring that is the only thing appearing on those shelves.
- Stack items neatly on your shelves. It may seem like a simple thing, but stacking items neatly can not only help you visually identify items faster, but it can help you find more space for storage quickly.
- Schedule times to clean your shelves. Have a time on your calendar where shelves are sorted, wiped down, and maintained. This will keep them clean and alert you to any maintenance issues early on.
- Use bins to sort small items. Small items are usually the main culprit of disorganized shelving. Purchase bins from DAK Equipment to sort and store small items on your industrial shelves.
