Peak Season is Here–Are Your Wisconsin Pallet Racks Ready?

Peak season is just getting started for many retail warehouses. If you are anticipating an increase in both your inbound and outbound inventory, you’ll want to make sure that the pallet racks you use in your Wisconsin warehouse are ready for those extra loads. Here are three things you’ll want to do as your inventory starts to roll in:

  • Perform a thorough inspection on your pallet racks. Check for damage that may have occurred and been missed over the slower summer season and make repairs right away. The DAK Equipment team can come out and do your inspection for you as well as performing any necessary repairs.
  • Make sure you have room for inventory increases. This may mean reconfiguring your warehouse floor plan to maximize space or investing in new infrastructure such as pallet racks or even a warehouse mezzanine to increase your space.
  • ¬†Keep things organized. Nothing can throw your warehouse into chaos like disorganization during the peak season. Make sure each member of your warehouse team is up-to-date on best practices and isn’t trying to cut corners in busy times. Stay organized from beginning to end and the peak season will be much smoother.

If you aren’t sure that your warehouse is prepared to handle the peak season, give the DAK Equipment & Engineering team a call. We can help you with inspections, warehouse floor plan designs, and ordering new pallet racks from our extensive new and used supply. Get in touch with us today and make sure you are ready for peak season inventory and shipping to begin!

What Role Will Your Pallet Racks Serve in the Future?

If you are a warehouse owner in Wisconsin, you know that technology is quickly changing how your warehouse operates. You may be handling inventory with RFID scanners, using robots to pick and pack, or utilizing complex algorithms to ensure your warehouse is staying stocked with exactly the right supplies. So what role will items like carton flow and selective pallet racks serve in the future of materials handling in your warehouse?

The truth is no matter how far out technology comes, we’ll still need a place to store our stuff. While technological advances can make picking, packing, ordering, and supply chain management easier than ever to handle, your inventory is really what it’s all about. Without inventory, you wouldn’t need a warehouse in the first place. That’s why you’ll want to continue to invest in this warehouse infrastructure; you’re likely to be using it for the foreseeable future, and starting with great pallet racks now can eliminate hassles in the future.

Technology is a great thing to implement into your warehouse when it’s something that’s going to help you process orders faster or keep your employees safer. Don’t neglect the basics, though, in favor of a new tech toy. Give DAK Equipment a call and we’ll help you strike the perfect balance for technology and infrastrutcutre in your Green Bay-area warehouse. We love helping warehouses like yours in Wisconsin find new ways to serve your customers better while increasing your bottom line.
