How can you create more space in your warehouse this year?

A lack of space in a warehouse can prove troublesome to businesses. Not only can it reduce the amount of stock you are able to hold, but it could also prove dangerous for employees if their working space becomes restricted too. Creating additional space in your warehouse can be achieved through the following methods and can help you towards a safe and more efficient warehouse.

Mezzanine floors are a perfect example of how you can make better use of existing space. A mezzanine floor is an intermediate level between the main floors of a building. It is erected independently of a building’s main structure and is supported by steel.  As a mezzanine floor sits between floors, it makes the most of space that would otherwise be unused and can help to provide extra storage space, additional processing areas or even office space.

Office partitions can be set-up to provide an area to do paperwork, conduct meetings and phone calls or even as a space for staff to take their lunch breaks – freeing up additional areas of your warehouse for storage.

Another key way to make more room is to ensure that the racking and shelving that is being used is the one that is best suited to that businesses operation. For example factors like the type of stock kept, the volume of it and how often access to it is needed, can all play a part.

A lack of space can provide a constant headache to many warehouse owners.  However, in many cases, more space can be created by simply making better use of the space that is already available.
