When it comes to industrial pallet storage racking, you probably have one big reason to purchase them: to store inventory. That is, after all, the primary reason that any business will purchase pallet racking system for the warehouse, as a means of keeping inventory until it sells. Pretty simple, right?
But while that is the primary reason, there are also a few other advantages you’ll be getting that you might not have thought of. Let’s look at some surprise benefits you might experience when you get the best pallet racks around.
There’s a reason that cities go vertical. A couple of hundred years ago, the largest structures weren’t more than three stories tall. Cities would simply keep growing out and out, and it wasn’t until certain materials became widely available and architectural designs vastly improved that buildings could be 10, 20, 50, or even 100 stories tall. Cities grew upward when outward no longer made sense.
Of course, warehouses can’t be a hundred stories tall. But they have grown upward over the years, because at some point outward just gets too expensive. Pallet rack systems have been at the heart of this growth, allowing more and more inventory to be kept in a smaller and smaller space. So whenever you can save space in one warehouse instead of building a second one, you’re not only saving the money associated with building; you’re also saving the real estate costs.
What’s the best way to save space? Have a pallet racking system professionally planned by one of our warehouse layout system experts and you’ll get the optimal storage space. At that point, you’ll be able to make choices that you never dreamed of before: should you leave space empty for emergency inventory acquisitions? Should you leave every space filled on the pallet racks and keep old inventory around longer until it sells? Your options open up when you are making the most of your industrial pallets.
If you’ve even not been able to find your car keys in the morning, this next question will be pretty easy to answer: does it save time when you know where something is?
Yeah, we know it’s a loaded question. Of course knowing where the specific item you’re looking for is at any given moment is going to save you time. It certainly holds true when you’re looking for a specific pallet in your warehouse. First of all, you don’t have to go looking for it. Second, if it’s been labeled as an important item and categorized appropriately as such in accordance with your warehouse optimization standards, it will be in the most efficient location possible (i.e. not stored behind ten other pallets). Knowing where something is is simply a time saver. And when that happens, you’ll be able to…
Save On Payroll
When you make the absolute optimal changes to your warehouse so that you’re saving space and saving time, you’re not going to need nearly the same number of employees. Instead of five forklift operators, you might only need four. Instead of three people needed to keep track of inventory, you might only need two. Getting a top-tier pallet racking system and keeping it properly organized means that you’re operating at peak efficiency, which means you can get the same job done with fewer workers. It might sound harsh, but it’s a benefit to the bottom line.
