Arranging Used Cantilever Rack Systems in Fishbone Aisles to Maximize Efficiency
Certainly, using a used cantilever rack in a storage facility or warehouse can make daily operations much more efficient than using just any type of industrial shelving. However, what often gets lost when trying to maximize warehouse efficiency are the actual cantilever racks themselves. Forever, racks and industrial shelving systems were arranged in straight-line patterns, but this type of organization can actually lead to inefficiencies.
What has come into vogue more recently is what is known as the fishbone aisle layout. Instead of aligning industrial shelves in straight lines, this layout organizes shelves in a diagonal format that looks similar to a fishbone structure. However, there’s good reason behind organizing shelving in what seems to be an odd design. Organizing cantilever racks in such a peculiar design actually allows employees to maneuver from any given area of the warehouse to another more quickly and by taking a shorter route to do so.
