It’s that time of year again: annual inventory time. It’s something that a lot of warehouses dread. It’s time-consuming, costly, and it brings to light a lot of the weaknesses that exist within our warehouse processes. But does it really have to be so painful? Inventory can go much more smoothly when you have the right warehouse equipment. So what is it that your warehouse needs?
More pallet rack shelving.
If you are trying to cram too much onto one shelf, it’s not only hard to count, it’s dangerous. Spreading out your pallet loads can help you make your inventory easier to find and also reduce the risk of damaging items on over-crowding pallet racks. If you have the room, it’s a great way to spread out.
Better carton flow racks.
When you are dealing with cartons instead of pallets, you need to keep these boxes organized. It’s much easier to lose smaller boxes of items than it is to misplace an entire rack. Carton flow racks keep items organized and pushed forward where they can be easily viewed and counted.
Warehouse mezzanine for storage.
If you are running out of space, sometimes the best option is to go up. A warehouse mezzanine is just what you need. You’ll gain valuable storage space without an expensive expansion to your existing warehouse space. Use it for pallets, cartons, or even a dedicated inventory count space during your annual inventory.
More bins for smaller items.
As easy as it is to misplace cartons, smaller individual SKUs are even worse. It’s easy for these items to literally slip through the cracks and throw off your inventory count. You can prevent this with bins and other warehouse equipment build for smaller storage. This helps keep your shelves organized and prevents objects from going astray.
