How to Use Pallet Rack Shelving to Give Yourself a Competitive Advantage

When it comes to getting an advantage over your competitors, your warehouse plays an important role. The key to your competitive advantage is making sure your warehouse can do two things: stay fast and flexible. Choosing the right pallet rack shelving can help you do both.

Stay Fast

Being able to process orders quickly and accurately is the first goal of your warehouse. This starts with setting up your warehouse with a pallet rack shelving system that offers the best storage solution for your products and keeping them organized. Next, speed comes from making sure the layout of your warehouse is optimized. The longer your team has to spend walking from the pallet racks to the shipping area is money that you are losing.

Stay Flexible

Customer demands change and products change, so your warehouse should be able to change with them. A successful warehouse should be able to quickly adapt to changes as they come up. Having a pallet rack system that can adapt along with the needs of your warehouse is essential. Racking systems should be able to adjust to your needs and help you serve your customers even more efficiently.

Is your current pallet rack system doing all of this for you? Are you able to be fast and stay flexible? If not, it’s time to call DAK Equipment & Engineering. Not only can we set you up with the best pallet racking system for your space, we can help you set it up in a layout that maximizing your space and increases your efficiency. Contact our team today.

Overlooked Areas of Maintenance for Pallet Racks

Most pallet rack maintenance is fairly straightforward. It’s something that most warehouses do on a daily basis, so they have it down to a science–or think they do. No matter how much pallet rack maintenance you are doing on a daily basis, it’s always a good idea to evaluate your processes and see if there is something that you could be doing better. Here are a few commonly overlooked areas when it comes to pallet rack maintenance.

Minor Damage

When major damage is done, it’s almost always reported quickly because people understand that the potential for injury or an accident from pallet rack collapse could happen. However, they are more reluctant to report minor damage. This might be caused by a bump from a forklift, dropped merchandise, or simply human error. Let your team know there is no such thing as minor damage when it comes to your pallet racks and all instances should be reported.

Cleanliness Around Racks

As long as the racks themselves are clean and organized, you are in good shape, right? No. The area around your pallet racks is just as important as the surfaces of the pallet racks themselves. That’s because these areas are usually where employees are working, so any clutter, spills or obstructions present a hazard. That can lead to damage to your pallet racks, not to mention more on-the-job injuries.

When Double Deep Pallet Racks Could Be Your Best Bet

Selective pallet racks are the most common racking solution you’ll find in warehouses, and for the majority of spaces, it’s one of the best solutions to their pallet storage needs. However, for other companies that don’t need access to all of their inventory 100% of the time, double deep racking could be a better way to go. It can save space without a lot of expense or inconvenience.

Benefits of Double Deep Pallet Racks

Double deep pallet racks are exactly what the name implies; instead of a single pallet rack, these shelves go back two pallets deep. Essentially, it eliminates an aisle between each row of pallet shelving. This can increase your space by 65%, perfect for warehouses which are running low on floor space but don’t want to expand or move locations. If you don’t need access to your inventory all the time and if rotation of your inventory isn’t a huge concern, this is a very economical solution for your warehouse. You may end up moving items around more often when you need to get to items stored in the second row, but for the savings it can be a minor sacrifice.
