Used Industrial Shelving & Fishbone Aisles: The Winning Combination
Do you maintain a storage facility or warehouse and utilize used industrial shelving to store all your inventory? If so, you likely know a thing or two about efficiency. In fact, a significant portion of your job is probably devoted to finding new ways to increase efficiency. However, one place that you might not think to look for when improving efficiency, yet one that can have a significant effect on your operations, lies in the actual equipment that you use each day.
Instead of using the standard straight-line layout for your industrial shelving, consider rearranging them in what is known as the fishbone aisle layout. Instead of using straight lines, this layout organizes shelving in diagonal lines that somewhat resemble a fishbone structure. This design allows employees to move from one area of the facility to any other in a quicker fashion, which, of course, means more productivity and better overall efficiency.
