Warehouse Storage Solutions

What are Warehouse Storage Solutions?

Warehouse storage systems store and organize inventory in a warehouse. There are many different warehouse storage solutions, each with advantages and disadvantages. The most common warehouse storage systems include pallet racking, pallet flow, industrial shelving, carton flow, mobile shelving, and mezzanine flooring. The ideal warehouse storage solution depends on the size of the facility, the inventory, and the business goals.

Who Can Benefit from Warehouse Storage Solutions?

Do you know that companies only use 20% of current warehouse space to its full potential? Effective warehouse storage solutions help companies maximize warehouse space and offer various operational benefits, increasing supply chain efficiency and boosting employee productivity.

Proper warehouse 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. Leveraging efficient warehouse storage solutions enable warehouses to store more products in the same footprint.
  • 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: Customized warehouse storage solutions focus on storing high-volume items in easily reachable locations. Low-volume products are kept in less noticeable areas for easy access. This system ensures efficient organization and accessibility for all items in the warehouse. Organized inventory also empowers smaller staff to get more daily picks for maximum productivity.
  • High Labor Costs: Labor costs account for 60-80% of a fulfillment operation‘s expenses.  The best way to reduce labor costs is to leverage storage to minimize travel and search time and increase the picks-per-day rate. Teams can also decrease labor costs by streamlining packing and shipping processes.

Optimize Your Space with UNEX Warehouse Storage Solutions

Optimizing warehouse space utilization makes meeting the challenges you face today easier. High-density industrial shelving, like UNEX SpeedCell, offers a convenient solution for increasing storage density by 40-60% without expanding your warehouse footprint.

SpanTrack carton flow systems expand warehouse storage capacity by better utilizing the space within your pallet racking. The gravity-fed, rear-to-front inventory replenishment to the point of pick allows warehouses to fully use the depth of their pallet racking, empowering them to store more SKUs in the same footprint and create ideal FIFO inventory rotation. 

UNEX Pallet Track, a dynamic pallet flow system, increases warehouse efficiency and reduces labor costs by supporting two-deep pallet storage lanes with high levels of visibility and accessibility.
