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.
