Maximise Space With Warehouse Shelving

One of the biggest challenges warehouse owners face is keeping inventory organised, especially if the space is small and confined. At Advanced Handling & Storage, we know many ways to maximise warehouse space with shelving. 

Naturally, over time, a warehouse will start to accumulate inventory and if not dealt with properly it can create an untidy and hazardous warehouse that becomes difficult to work in.

So, what is the solution to this problem? As Advanced Handling & Storage, we recommend shelving for the job. Shelving, along with other warehouse storage solutions, will keep your warehouse orderly and safe for operations. 

Here are six ways you can maximise warehouse space with shelving. 

Evaluate current storage solutions

Before making any decisions on what to invest in for your warehouse, it’s a good idea to evaluate the current storage solutions you have in place. We recommend taking note of all storage space and working out what stock is sorted where and how.

It’s important to identify what is working and what is not so you can make decisions on how to better the space.

Analyse your warehouse space

Once you’ve reviewed the storage solutions you have in place, study your warehouse to determine how the space could be better utilised. 

Remember that your warehouse should have a logical flow or sequence of operations. Think about the daily operations your warehouse undertakes and arrange the inventory in an order that supports those actions. 

Inventory should be stored in a way that is accessible and the best way to ensure warehouse operatives can access products easily is through effective storage. Adequate shelving and pallet racking will help your products be accessed easily. View our range of shelving and pallet racking solutions here. 

A large part of your warehouse space should be used for stock and operational functions in comparison to office space and areas with empty boxes or pallets. 

Extend warehouse shelving vertically

One of the best ways to optimise your warehouse for more storage is to make use of vertical space. Consider extending your shelving solutions vertically with our range of options

We have a wide range of shelving in different materials, sizes and weight limits. The shelving you choose will depend on your space and the nature of products you intend to store.

Consolidate warehouse items

If you find that you have multiple locations in your warehouse storing the same item, it’s time to consolidate these items and put them in one place.

Extend the depth of storage 

If you can’t extend your space any further vertically, consider deepening your storage racks to help create additional space to store inventory.
