Pallet Rack Systems for Your Small Chicago Warehouse

If you are dealing with palletized shipments, you can benefit from pallet rack systems no matter how small your warehouse might be. Many warehouse owners and managers think that they will run into the following problems if they try to install pallet rack systems in their small Chicago warehouse:

  • No space for storing smaller items
  • Running out of space for employees to work in
  • No room for forklifts to operate
  • Needlessly taking up storage space for their palletized shipments

Space is always an issue for a warehouse, no matter how big it might be. More often than not, though, space is an issue not because there isn’t any left but because you aren’t using the space that you have as efficiently as possible. That’s how a pallet rack system can help. If your warehouse is dealing with pallets, a system for those pallets is a must. While it might take up space in your already-cramped warehouse, it can use the space that it takes up more efficiently and allow your team to work with those pallets in a safer, less time-consuming way.

Pallet rack systems are designed to hold and manage your pallets in an organized fashion. If your aren’t currently using one, chances are you are simply stacking your pallets on top of each other or laying them out across your floor space. Stacking creates a slow down in production when the items that you need are on the bottom of the stack; spreading out your pallets isn’t using your space wisely and is probably making it feel more cramped than it is in reality.

Depending on the kind of merchandise that you are handling, the number of pallets you deal with, and how often you need to access them, there is a pallet rack system for your space. The DAK Equipment & Engineering team in Chicago can help you determine which one is right for your warehouse by getting to know more about your company and the space you are working in. Options include selective pallet racks (the most common pallet rack system used in warehouses), drive thru pallet rack systems (used with forklifts), and push back pallet rack systems. Once you and your DAK Equipment representative have decided which pallet rack system is best, they can help you design your space to make it fit.

We have an on-site warehouse design team who can help you overhaul your warehouse to make the most effective use of the space possible. You’ll be amazed at how our team can transform even the smallest warehouses into efficient, well organized units. We’ll give you a layout with our suggestions for your new setup, including the integration of your pallet rack systems.

If you are tired of tripping over pallets and constantly shuffling your pallets around, give the DAK Equipment team a call today. We’d love to talk to you about your pallet rack needs and help you find the system that fits your warehouse and your budget. You can reach us by giving us a call or contacting us through our website today.

Make a Resolution to Organize Your Industrial Shelves

How are the industrial shelves in your Chicago-area warehouse looking? If you are trying not to look too closely at your industrial shelves because of the mess they’ve become, it’s time to set a resolution for the new year to get them organized. Organization can help your warehouse perform better, meeting and exceeding the goals you have for the coming year. While some messy shelves can seem like an overwhelming task to get organized, DAK Equipment & Engineering has everything you need to get organized, and more importantly, stay organized. We have a few tips along with some products that can help you get started on achieving your organizational goals for your warehouse.

  • A place for everything, and everything in its place. One of the major hurdles that warehouses encounter when it comes to organization is when no one knows what to do with something. Many warehouses have a “catch all” corner or shelf that everyone piles things when they don’t know what else to do. By creating specific areas of your warehouse for items, labeling them, and making them accessible to everyone, you’ll be overcome major organization issues from the start.
  • Invest in containers and bins for small pieces. Small items are the bane of the warehouse environment. Not only are they harder to pick and pack, they are harder to manage for inventory and keep organized. Get them out of flimsy cardboard boxes and into cartons, bins, and containers. This makes it easier to get to them items when you need them and keep them organized when you don’t.
  • Make organization a priority for the entire team. It can’t just be up to you to keep your entire warehouse organized. Set goals for your team when it comes to organization and put people in charge of specific areas. Have them do organization checks before they leave for the day, and correct any issues you might find. Making this a consistent part of everyone’s day will transform organization into a natural habit in your warehouse.
  • Get help. If the problem in your warehouse is simply too much for you to take on, talk to a warehouse organization expert. DAK Equipment project managers can help you find and implement the solutions that you need to create a warehouse that is clean, organized, and functioning at peak performance. You’ll love what they can do to help you transform your warehouse.

Don’t put off organizing your industrial shelves any longer. The longer you wait, the bigger the problem is going to get. We can help not only make it more manageable but eliminate the issue entirely by creating a warehouse that has the storage you need and a space for everything. Start making your resolution for more organized industrial shelves a reality by getting in touch with the project manager at DAK Equipment & Engineering today. You can reach out to us over the phone or through our website. Our project managers will partner with you in creating a warehouse space that you’ll be proud to show off!
