When your company grows and begins to build out new warehouses, it’s an exciting time as you see the concept become a reality. To some extent you’re going to expand on what you know worked in the smaller warehouse while upgrading daily operations to accommodate the new storage space, shelving solutions, and logistics of larger inventories while customizing the structure to suit your needs.

The efficiency of your warehouse relies on your ability to move items around as needed. Hand trucks are a basic essential that allows employees to move more than an armload of items at once. Even if you use forklifts for larger projects, a pallet jack is going to come in handy for quick placement of items according to need. Carts of all different shapes and sizes offer specific uses according to your needs, and every warehouse needs to have a few different carts to maintain their daily function.
Work Benches and Stools
Work benches have a simple explanation and practical use, even if you don’t realize the need for one. You have employees who spend 8-12 hours every day in that warehouse, they need a safe place to conduct work. It may be as simple as changing the blades in a razor knife. They may need to tighten a loosened cart part, or repair a broken tool. A work bench and stools can also serve as a desk when papers need to be signed with a shipping agent. There is no way to predict every usage it will see, but a functioning warehouse needs a workbench and stools as part of daily operations.
