Consider a Phased Installation of Selective Pallet Rack in Your Wisconsin Warehouse

Not all warehouses have the luxury of starting with a clean slate. In fact, the majority of the Wisconsin warehouses our DAK Equipment team works with have existing materials handling system, inventory, and shipping materials in place. When they decide it’s time to upgrade their materials handling equipment or install new equipment to handle new inventory, they’ll need to work around what is already there. In this case, a phased installation of their selective pallet rack system could be the right answer.

Instead of shutting down your warehouse for an extended period of time, a phased installation of selective pallet racks in your Wisconsin warehouse allows you to continue operating while only closing down a portion of your operation. If you choose to have our installation team do the work for you, they will work with you to develop a timeline that gets the installation work done as quickly as possible with the least amount of disruption to your team. Through a phased installation, you’ll get the equipment you need to be installed without a loss of time or money to your operation.

If you’d like to learn more about how our installation team can help with the phased installation of selective pallet rack in your Wisconsin warehouse, get in contact with our team. Our project managers are eager to work with you to help you develop the best possible material handling flow for your operation. You can contact us through our website and we’ll get back with you right away!

Open Up Room On Your Selective Pallet Rack With a Lean Inventory Model

When you run a warehouse, it’s tempting to ensure you always have everything you could possibly need on hand at all times. You pack your selective pallet rack system with all the inventory you can handle. That way you’ll never disappoint the customer by being out of stock, right? Think again. There are plenty of disadvantages to this system:

  • You’ll drive up your costs. More inventory is more of your cash flow tied up on your selective pallet rack shelves. That can put your cash flow in a bind. You could end up with more waste, too, depending on your inventory type.
  • You’ll slow down your production. Whether you are assembling products or picking them for orders, too much stuff will slow down your teams. They’ll have to constantly be reorganizing and searching through stacks to find the items they need for your customers.
  • You’ll end up running out of room. The cost of moving your warehouse should be avoided. It’s not a fun thing to do, and it can put a stop to your outgoing orders for days or even weeks.

Lean inventory is a great model to consider. You’ll keep only the things you need right now on hand on your selective pallet rack system in your Wisconsin warehouse. Specialty products may need to be special ordered or even drop shipping to customers, but the advantages you get by not needing to handle these items yourself are enormous.

Lean inventory takes more planning, but it can be a huge benefit to yoru Wisconsin warehouse. If you’d like to learn more about lean inventory management or how you can use your selective pallet rack more efficiently, give us a call today!
