How long has it been since you updated your warehouse equipment? If it’s been a while, you might want to consider bringing in some new equipment this year. New warehouse equipment can help you work faster, fulfill orders more efficiently, reduce your error rates, and even lower your long-term costs. If you are looking for ways to improve your warehouse, here are five pieces of equipment you should try and why we think you’ll love using them in your warehouse.
Cantilever racking is some of the most basic warehouse equipment out there, but it’s also one of the most underutilized and underappreciated. Cantilever racking is basically just two arms set into uprights. This storage solution is perfect if you need to store anything long, especially if there are a variety of sizes. Things like lumber, pipes, or similar items are perfectly stored in this kind of system. It’s pretty space-efficient, too, so you can pack a lot of items into a small space. That can free up other storage space within your warehouse, optimizing your layout.
Is your warehouse using a conveyor system yet? If it’s not, it could be the perfect way to start automating more of your warehouse. A conveyor can help you move product move across your warehouse without the use of human labor. That frees up your employees for tasks that require skilled labor. This can lower your expenses and make your entire operation more efficient. Does that seem like a lot to ask from a simple conveyor system? Try it for yourself. There are a huge number of conveyor system options so you can find one that’s suitable for your space and your budget.
Industrial lockers are one of those deceptively simple warehouse items that actually go a long way to making your space better. Industrial lockers can be used to store equipment as well as give your team a safe place to store their personal belongings. Industrial lockers are an affordable investment that can clear up clutter, make your space safer, and even improve employee morale. Try this small improvement in your warehouse and see what it does for you.
Mezzanines can be a big investment in your warehouse space that pays off in a huge way. That’s because a mezzanine deck can essentially double the usable square footage of your warehouse without an expensive expansion, and all at a fraction of the price. A mezzanine can be used for sorting, picking, packing, storage, or even as an office space within your warehouse. We can help you find a custom option for your mezzanine level, utilizing your overhead space and giving your warehouse more room to grow.
We love modular offices and you will, too. Modular offices are an ideal way to create a separate space within your warehouse, useful for clean rooms, quality assurance spaces, administrative offices, and more. They take less time to build than a traditional office space and can even be moved to another location if you decide to move. You can even save on your taxes! Modular offices can be customized to the size you need, with the features that you need, and in a variety of styles and colors making it just right for your warehouse space.
