When Adding Heavy Duty Pallet Rack Storage to Your Warehouse, Maximizing Efficiency is Important
Maximizing efficiency may seem like a difficult task, especially when you’re incorporating more heavy duty racking into your warehouse design. Pallet racks that are made to hold particularly large quantities or heavy products can often take up quite a bit of space, especially since you’ll usually need room for a forklift or other large machinery to access the stored product. Fortunately, there are ways around this that you can use to improve efficiency in your warehouse.
One method of maximizing efficiency with heavy duty storage racks is by arranging them in a fishbone aisle layout. This is a diagonal design that can help to fit the greatest amount of pallet racks and other shelving into the available space. It also helps maintain enough space for forklifts and makes it easier to move from one aisle to another, so your staff will be able to reduce the time it takes to retrieve product from the shelves.
