Warehouse Storage Solutions

Why Warehouse Storage Solutions?

Did you know that only 20% of current warehouse space is being used to its full potential? Warehouse storage solutions help companies maximize warehouse space and offer various operational benefits that increase supply chain efficiency and boost employee productivity.

Proper storage solutions optimize available space and make it easier for workers to locate and retrieve products safely and efficiently.

How Storage Solutions Solve Warehouse Challenges

A disorganized warehouse space prevents companies from maximizing profitability. Long paths between products, inefficient warehouse storage solutions, and unlabeled inventory all result in wasted time for workers. A successfully-managed warehouse, however, provides significant benefits across the company.

Warehouse storage solutions, in particular, help solve the following challenges:

  • Insufficient Storage Capacity: Warehouse and distribution center managers are constantly identifying opportunities to utilize existing space and meet capacity needs efficiently. Leveraging warehouse storage solutions enable warehouses to store more products in the same footprint.

  • Picker Productivity: Excess picker search and travel time is wasteful, heightens the chance of a mispick, and negatively impacts your bottom line. To maximize worker productivity, warehouses should condense and label SKUs to ensure they are accessible and easy to find.

  • Disorganized Product: Fulfillment centers need to keep up with consumer demand. Customized storage puts high-volume items in easy-to-access areas and keeps low-volume products accessible but in less high-profile positions.

  • High Labor Costs: Labor costs account for 60-80% of a fulfillment operation‘s expenses. Teams can decrease labor costs by streamlining packing and shipping processes. The best way to reduce labor costs is to leverage storage to minimize travel and search time and increase the picks-per-day rate. Organized storage also empowers smaller staff to get more picks in per day for maximum productivity.


Manual vs. Automated Warehouse Solutions

To reduce production and labor costs, companies use automated solutions such as robots in various operations, from grabbing bins filled with merchandise to stacking these bins onto pallets. Robots help perform tasks and cut down travel time for workers. Because there is no need for aisle space to accommodate large groups of people, shelves are packed more densely.

However, while automation is a viable option for optimizing warehouse processes, it has drawbacks. It’s more expensive to scale, increases the cost of electricity, and requires specific technical knowledge to operate. Additionally, there are still some tasks where humans outperform robots – one of which is the ability to efficiently pick individual items of varying sizes and shapes off the shelves.
