Every warehouse has different needs and fulfillment processes based on their product and end customer. Depending on your type of inventory and order flow, there are multiple racking options to fit your specific needs. Is your warehouse fraught with non-standard products that are over-length, bulky, and creating chaos on your storage floor? You can maximize your available space with a simple rack system.
Whether you need upright frames for vertical storage or load beams to store heavy cargo, machinery and other weighted objects KMH has you covered. Your warehouse operation is only as profitable as your ability to fulfill orders efficiently. We have what you need, and will present you with all your available options to increase your ROI.
We can help you choose the perfect rack for your forklift fleet and employee productivity needs. You aisle width is extremely important when considering how to access your products via forklift.
We help you design the perfect ways to add extensions to existing uprights or buy taller uprights to make maximum use of available clear height. Extensions can be bolted onto existing frames to provide as much height as is necessary. Mezzanines can provide space for dense shelving necessary for slow movers.
Move Beam Levels and Change Pallet Profiles
Attention to pallet dimensions can allow some facilities to position beam levels so that no more than 4-6” is wasted for pallet lift-off. Often an entire additional beam level of storage can be created by reducing wasted beam spacing.
Make It Narrow
Dramatic increases in pallets stored per cubic foot can be achieved by converting to Narrow Aisle stand-up trucks. You can even go as efficient as Very Narrow Aisle equipment that uses roughly 60” aisles. We help you space out your operation so it is lean and clean.
Slow Mover Solutions
Carton, or case flow rack, pick modules and horizontal carousels also offer high density piece picking alternatives. Stack-racks may help reduce the footprint of bulky items. Deep reach, push-back, drive-in and pallet flow systems all increase storage density. Slow movers, seasonal products, multiple pallets per SKU items, etc. all are great places to start looking for storage alternatives. Other high density options include Mobile Aisle systems, Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (ASRS), Mini-Load systems. Vertical storage options include Vertical Lifts, also called Shuttles, and Vertical Carousels.
Even in a small warehouse slotting to reduce wasted travel time can have a big impact in storage and retrieval time. Remember that often the most expensive part of picking an order is the labor to pick it.
