How to make your warehouse more adaptable in busy periods of the year

Even when a business is doing well it can still be a gamble to move premises. The costs involved and the difficulty in finding the perfect location elsewhere often leaves many business owners scratching their heads as to what the best solution is. However, the best answer often lies not right under the noses, but right above their heads.

Whether seasonal pressures build for your business during the lead up to Christmas, Black Friday, Cyber Monday or other industry related times of the year, it can be a challenge to keep up. If your warehouse is bursting at the seams then one of the best things you can do is conduct a thorough assessment of your premises. Walk around your warehouse and take note of any space that is currently unused – you might find that you are surprised by the results. Often room that you wouldn’t have even thought about using could be put to use and space elsewhere could be better organised.

One of our most popular solutions for businesses that are struggling for space is that of a mezzanine floor. Mezzanine floors make use of space that would otherwise be wasted. As warehouses tend to be quite tall there is often a lot of overhead space that can be taken advantage of, creating a new platform for a variety of tasks. Whether that new space is used for picking and packing, storage or even office space is entirely your decision, but either way it will increase the amount of room you have available and help you better meet the demands of a busy period for your business.

Another option to free up space is to utilise shelving or racking. From pallet racking to long span shelving and more there are lots of different options available that can help you to better manage your inventory and in turn reduce the amount of time it takes you or your employees to perform a task – reducing distribution times and improving the bottom line for your business.
