“Expect the best. Prepare for the worst. Capitalise on what comes.” Zig Ziglar

When it comes to anything in business as in life succeeding is down to a healthy amount of preparation. To maximise the potential of the business you need to have a clear view of what you have so you can capitalise on it. This is nowhere more important than with storage. You need to use the space you have to ensure you have the products you need, as soon as you need them. It is important to use your space effectively. This will not only increase efficiency but hopefully profits too.

  1. Inventory

Knowing what you have and where it is is one of the most important aspects of a company’s storage. Keeping a detailed and accurate inventory is therefore essentially. It is also important that all necessary staff are able to access the inventory, so if a key staff member is absent then items can still be found. It goes without saying that an inventory needs to be constantly updated as stock is moved around. Keeping a regularly updated inventory also means you can ensure that you only store the stock you need. There is no point paying to store items which will go untouched. In the same way, popular items can be given more space so there are enough when you need them.

2. Maximise Space

One of the biggest problems businesses have is more stock than space.Looking for effective ways to maximise that space is therefore really important. Installing a drive in pallet racking from Warehouse Storage Solutions is a cost effective solution which provides an excellent method of condensing storage.

The system operates a first in, last out basis and gives high-density storage in a much smaller area. The pallets are stored on rails that are bolted to the frames. The use of Drive In/Through Pallet Racking will often require pallets to be moved so as to gain access to the pallet required. Using Drive In/Through Pallet racking does not require specialist handling equipment.Screen Shot 2016-05-05 at 21.39.38

3. Mezzanine Floor

Building a mezzanine floor is a great way to add extra space without needing new land. Warehouses can often be much taller than they need to be which provides a great opportunity for adding a mezzanine. This can actually be relatively cost effective and are easy and quick to fit. They are also easy to adapt if your needs change. When compared to a costly extension can provide the solution you were searching for.

Whatever storage you have the key is to keep evaluating it to see if it continues to meet your needs.
