Peak season is just getting started for many retail warehouses. If you are anticipating an increase in both your inbound and outbound inventory, you’ll want to make sure that the pallet racks you use in your Wisconsin warehouse are ready for those extra loads. Here are three things you’ll want to do as your inventory starts to roll in:
- Perform a thorough inspection on your pallet racks. Check for damage that may have occurred and been missed over the slower summer season and make repairs right away. The DAK Equipment team can come out and do your inspection for you as well as performing any necessary repairs.
- Make sure you have room for inventory increases. This may mean reconfiguring your warehouse floor plan to maximize space or investing in new infrastructure such as pallet racks or even a warehouse mezzanine to increase your space.
- Keep things organized. Nothing can throw your warehouse into chaos like disorganization during the peak season. Make sure each member of your warehouse team is up-to-date on best practices and isn’t trying to cut corners in busy times. Stay organized from beginning to end and the peak season will be much smoother.
