Here at DAK Equipment & Engineering, we strive to provide you materials handling solutions that propels your business forward while keeping costs low. Whether you’re looking for wholesale pallet racks or conveyor systems, we can develop a solution that works in your favor. Warehouse operations exist for one basic reason: getting the product from the supplier to the consumer. As you know, this means that it’s extremely important that your pallets and products are handled with care and timeliness so that you can deliver the goods to the consumer with the quality they expect – and to keep you costs in your distribution center or warehouse as low as possible.
You may be scratching your head, trying to figure out how to keep your costs low while keeping your output efficient. Product damage is usually a direct result of some other form of damage in the warehouse – whether it’s pallet damage, rack damage, or even lift truck damage. All of these factors are important to consider when you’re trying to keep costs low. It’s imperative that you do regular inspections to ensure that your materials handling systems are working exactly the way they’re supposed to.
There are a number of preventative measures that you can take to help avoid destruction of products and damaged materials handling systems. You can do everything from adding extra support on your racking system and warehouse design to providing pallets that are of better quality, to improving the ergonomics of your lift trucks and making sure your operators get adequate training and breaks.
