A poorly designed warehouse can be typically constrained by the type of building you occcupy. The column positions that support the structure and the height of the roof can create an inefficient environment that simply decreases warehouse productivity and increases the total cost of your warehouse function.

Selecting the right storage solutions to support your inventory storage and movement profile needs to be considered carefully as implementing the wrong solution will certainly impact on the warehouses ability to store, locate and move stock. By selecting the right storage solutions, supported by the right materials handling equipment, your warehouse will be able to utilise both floor space and elevated cubic storage space more effectively which will lead to greater productivity levels for the warehouse.

An efficient warehouse must also have the right warehouse resource structure in place which has the ability to respond to seasonal demand and challenging delivery windows at the right cost for your business. This flexibility is supported by standard operating procedures for all personnel in conjunction with a sound warehouse management system that directs resources on the most effiient replenishment and pick paths throughout the warehouse layout.

Our warehouse assessment focuses on identifying and improving the daily operation of the warehouse function, its resources, processes, procedures, systems, equipment and inventory. Refer below for an outline.
