Whether for your business or work, running a warehouse is not a small task. Keeping everything organised is on top of warehouse managers’ and owners’ priorities. Imagine having to move inventory to fulfil orders and taking hours just hunting down a product. It’s a nightmare. An unorganised warehouse is a business’s horror.
There are so many moving parts in warehouses that you need to be detailed in your organising approach. Here are the simple tips that will immediately level up your organising efforts.
Putting a sticker label on all your stock ensures that when you go through inventory, it’s easy to keep track of all your products. Implement a label legend where you tag items of the same or similar description into category labels. For some closed containers, you can even take a photo of what’s inside and stick that picture on the outside. If you have these details on the label, you will save so much time by immediately finding things you need instead of taking wild guesses.
Keep walking spaces clear
Make it a team task to always keep walking areas clear. Not only does this ensure that there are no untoward incidents in the warehouse, but it also helps the workflow of your warehouse team. Items will be moved in a much quicker fashion when the aisles are free of obstruction. This keeps the workplace human-focused; helping employees do their tasks in the most efficient way.
Maximise vertical space
Save space in your warehouse by stacking all your high-density storage boxes from Containit Solutions vertically. These boxes and other product containers can usually be stacked on top of each other. When organising warehouses, maximising space is of utmost importance. Every inch of available space matters. From floor to ceiling, vertical storage makes the most efficient use of space.
Keeping a warehouse organised and work-conducive is a tall task. However, ensuring that your warehouse is orderly and work-friendly saves you from more headache in the future.
