Organised Warehouse is a Happy Warehouse

When it’s well organised, a warehouse is a productive, efficient and happy place to be. It’s the engine room of your business and although your customers may never see it, they certainly feel the benefits of it working smoothly.

A happy warehouse + happy customers = a very happy and profitable business.

Here’s a few essential tips on how to get your site organised and your staff and customers grinning:

Plan Your Space

What do you need your warehouse to actually do?

Don’t answer that question.

Warehouse space should never planned from behind a desk. Go for a walk to see how the space works or better yet, drive around it to make sure that your walkway spaces are wide enough for forklifts, pallet trucks and well laden trolleys.

Look at your access points and once you really understand the space, you can section it according to your most important business needs.

Incoming stock deliveries, storage for picking and packing orders and distribution points are the three most common work areas required in a warehouse; make getting them right a priority.

These functional spaces are the foundation for an organised, efficient and successful business. Everything else you need, like tills, administration offices, catering facilities or bathrooms can be worked around them.

Once you’ve figured out what you need and where you need it, it’s time for the fun bit.

Invest in Quality Shelving

Industrial racking or shelving is kind of like a Mecanno set for big boys. It’s designed to be built up, extended, adjusted and changed as and when you need it to be.

You get what you pay for so invest in something durable that can comfortably take the weight of anything you need to store on it.

Allow plenty of space, not just for stock, but for shoppers with trolleys or for employees to move goods and equipment around easily. This makes purchasing, picking and packing, replenishing, inventorying and rotating stock easy for everyone and enables you to offer a great service.

But, bear in mind that choosing your shelves and racking is easy; conceptualising how they will look and work together in a large space can be tricky.

If you’re kitting out a warehouse from scratch or overhauling an existing one, make life easy on yourself (and save the expense of later correcting something you get wrong!) by using a planning service to help you figure out all the parts, connectors, tools and muscle power you need to put it all together.

Once they’re up, you can show them off with a #shelfie shot to other happy warehouses over on Twitter and who knows, if you really go for it, your premises could be just as happy as this Ikea warehouse in Malaysia.

Who wouldn’t want to go to work or do their shopping in a place like that?!
