Efficient utilisation of warehouse space has long been a dilemma for many a warehouse and operations manager. As businesses grow year on year, so does the demand on storage space. Inefficient use of space can bring operational or financial constraints to growing businesses.
Accurate forecasting enables many businesses to address the issue of warehouse space before it becomes a problem. However, seasonal trends and typical busy periods as well as external factors within a supply chain can play a major role in the validity of a forecast. Combine this with consumer volatility and environmental issues and it is easy to see how unforeseen pressures on a warehouse can occur, with the major issue being a severe shortage of space.
Within many warehousing and distribution centres conventional pallet racking systems, which allow for goods to be stacked and organised effectively, are common practice. However, conventional pallet racking is not always the most practical and viable way to deal with seasonal trends which can often require a warehouse to be extremely versatile and to work to its maximum efficiency.
Post pallets are a fast and convenient alternative to expensive racking solutions as they can be assembled instantaneously, allowing businesses to see the advantages and obtain an immediate return on investment. From their vast stock range Palletower can offer a varied range of sizes that can accommodate products that are not best suited to standard racking due to their abnormal shapes, lengths and sizes.
