Be warehouse savvy – and see profits soar

Few businesses consider the effect that a poorly laid out warehouse can have on their profits. Most are satisfied with premises that look about as cheerful as a clown crematorium.

But the savvy company executive knows that everyone needs a boost in their workforce. Whether it’s executives in their ivory towers or low-wage workers in their finely tuned warehouse, keeping everyone satisfied will help boost morale and, in turn, reduce staff turnover.

With that in mind, we’ve racked our noodles to give you tips on how your warehouse could be improved. Here’s what we’ve come up with.

Kit out your mezzanine

Have you got enough space in your warehouse? Or is your shelving fit to burst? Well, provided you’ve got high ceilings, some mezzanine flooring could be the solution to your spatial woes.

Essentially a new floor supported by steel girders, mezzanine flooring will quite literally take your warehouse to the next level.

Just imagine what you can do with all that extra space. You’ll be able to install new shelving, cram in extra boxes or even create a VIP area for visiting clients.

For added safety, invest in mezzanine pallet gates, an elevator of sorts designed for the safe movement of cargo. That way, you’ll avoid any dangerous descents downstairs with heavy goods.

Let there be light

How many warehouses have you entered with the dingy feeling of a dungeon? Dark corners, boxes looking withered and employees resembling vampires – all sights you’ll see in the worst kind of warehouse.

And the solution is simple – let in the sun.

Invest in windows for your roof that’ll illuminate your warehouse. With the boost of rays, your premises will be more oxygenated, leading to fresher, more active employees. There’s literally no downside.

Stay perky

Employees love a perk or two, even if it’s just something to help break up the grind of the day.

So why not give the people what they want? Fill your staff room with goodies on a daily basis, make sure you’ve got a decent range of teas and coffees on offer, and bring in the occasional culinary treat to inject some pep into your workers.

Working in a warehouse can sometimes feel like a bit of a slog. But with one or two treats to brighten up a shift, that slog won’t seem quite so bad.

Beat the labyrinth

In larger warehouses, getting lost is par for the course. Shelves and shelves run left and right like Daedalus’ labyrinth. You have to leave a trail of breadcrumbs just to return to where you’ve started.

That’s why you need directions and helpful signs throughout your warehouse. If your employees aren’t continually befuddled, their productivity will inevitably increase.


Three Necessary Things to Make Sure Your Portable Storage Container Is Packed Properly

If you have hired or purchased a portable storage container, you have to pack it properly. This is essential in terms of making sure your belongings are protected and in terms of unpacking your container with ease afterwards. Let’s take a look at some of the things you need to know about.

1 – Your Base

First of all, you need to get the base right. Your base should be made up of things that make a really good and sturdy foundation. It has to be really strong and should extend right the way to the back of the container. Do make sure you make sections as well. The back of the container is the best place for large appliances. Put those against the back wall and then stack the sides with boxes with miscellaneous items.

2 – Your Straps

Next, you need straps. Straps will stop things from moving about, and hence from braking. If you want to make sure that everything stays in place, use as many straps as possible. In a 16 foot unit, it is common to have as many as six straps, sectioning off different areas. There are various types of straps and elements that you will need. This includes:

  • Your strap connections. eTrack systems are probably the best ones, as they also come with various slots, which means you are not forced to use specific shapes of sections. You can also use ratchet straps or bungee cords, anything is better than nothing.
  • Your finishing strap. This needs to be between the items right the way at the front and the door of the unit. These straps will stops anything from falling out when you open the door, thereby preventing breaking any items and injuring yourself.
  • Put your mattresses and other such soft items on the top, against the boxes. Run a strap from side to side to keep it all in place. In effect, your mattress is then functioning as two separate straps, which means you save a bit of money.

3 – Furniture Blankets

The final thing you need is furniture blankets. This will protect all your furniture from getting scratched and dirty. Additionally, it provides extra padding, thereby protecting it from breakages, scratches and dent. Most storage container companies will rent out furniture blankets. This is often a cheaper option than buying them yourself. However, you can also use your old bedding if you want to save even more costs. It is likely that you will be throwing them out anyway, so you may as well get one last use out of them.

With these three tips, you should be able to pack your portable storage containers properly and in such a way that your items will be properly protected and everything will arrive in one piece. Moving is stressful enough without having to worry about some priceless heirloom getting destroyed, after all. Luckily, packing a storage container properly isn’t difficult and just requires common sense. Common sense and straps!
