How and Why to Incorporate Pallet Racking into Your Small Sized Warehouse

Every warehouse faces challenges making the best use of the available space, and this is especially true when working in a smaller sized warehouse. The space may feel adequate for most of the year, but at times, perhaps when sales and orders are at a higher level than ordinary, the usable space isn’t well optimized.

In those types of situations, it’s easy for a warehouse to become overcrowded and messy because there’s no room for everything to have its own designated area. There are several ways to address the problem, but designing and utilizing an efficient pallet racking system is perhaps one of the easiest ways to increase the usable area of a warehouse without incurring the additional costs of having to rent or buy more square footage.

Maximizing Available Space

Pallet racking allows for materials to be stored all the way up to the ceiling with access by a forklift. Simply adding one higher stack effectively doubles the storage area a warehouse can maintain, and three or four tiers of stackable pallet shelving can likewise triple or quadruple the efficiency of a warehouse. When only storing one level of pallets, all the extra room between the top of the pallet’s contents and the ceiling is being wasted when more product could potentially be stored there.

Maintaining Order with an Organized Storage System

Maintaining order in a smaller warehouse not only allows the area to function more efficiently by allowing workers to find needed product quickly but is also a safety measure. When pathways are blocked it makes it difficult for a forklift driver to see people on foot. Clutter also makes preparing shipments harder when staff has to search for boxes stored behind other boxes. Make employee workflow easier by maintaining both ordered pathways and an organized storage system.

Smaller warehouses simply cannot afford to waste space. Pallet racks allow for floor to ceiling storage, improving efficiency and organization, and delaying buy or rent more space.

Getting the Job Done for the California Fire Department

When a busy southern California fire department needed help storing and organizing their equipment, Action Wholesale Products was there to get the job done.

Fire departments have to store and maintain a wide variety of equipment of all different sizes and storage needs. At the same time, they have to have easy access to their equipment, know where to find it, and get at it quickly.

The Challenge and the Solution

This fire department found itself running out of storage space, and what they did have to work with used shelving that was getting old and unstable. It was still sufficient for some things, but not for the heavier equipment. They needed a solution, one that would fit within their limited budget.

They chose to purchase a 40 foot shipping container and outfit it with new shelving. They required that the new shelves be easily configured to meet a variety of needs, be low-cost yet high quality, and have the ability to be securely attached to the container walls. They also wanted shelves with a highly durable melamine finish that would stand up to abuse, resist stains and dirt, and be easy to clean.

When they started shopping around for vendors, they found that most of them simply couldn’t provide what they were looking for. They either didn’t have the versatility they needed, were too expensive, carried inferior products, or a combination of all of the above.

Action Wholesale Products Comes Through

They finally chose Action Wholesale Products as the vendor with the shelving they were looking for at the right price, with a quick delivery time and good customer service.

With the expert help of our sales team, they decided to purchase eight 72” x 60” x 24” shelving units that could be easily attached and had the required melamine finish. In addition, they ordered four black wire shelving carts to handle a variety of equipment storage that could be easily moved.

This being the first time the fire department had worked with Action Wholesale Products, they weren’t sure what to expect as far as service and whether AWP would deliver as promised. They were pleased to find that AWP had all of their purchases in stock, and within three business days they had their shelves on the premises and ready to install. They chose to install the shelves in the shipping container themselves, and found that the hangers used on these products were easy to work with and securely held the shelves to the sides, more than strong enough to hold the heaviest equipment they planned to store on them.

Another Happy Customer

Overall, the fire department was quite happy with their shelves and their service. Said their Chief, “Melody at Action Wholesale Products was very pleasant to work with the entire time despite some technicalities on our part due to government regulations and purchasing policies. She was patient and prompt with correspondence.”
