Mastering Storage Logistics to Improve Your Storage & Warehousing

storage-and-warehousingEfficient storage and warehousing operations are key for product-based businesses, acting as the foundation of customer satisfaction. When customers receive their items on time, they’re happy; if not, you may lose a loyal buyer. 

For this reason, optimizing certain aspects of your storage logistics is crucial. This includes space, layout, and the technology you use to streamline delivery and fulfillment. When all of these components are individually refined, it makes for a cohesive warehousing operation free of friction and delays.

While we carry out product fulfillment, we also regularly store trade show materials locally for easy delivery and set up, office furniture and items for relocations, and retail fixtures for full-scale product rollouts.

Storage Logistics: The Key to Improved Storage & Warehousing

Efficient storage and warehousing operations are crucial for any product-based business that requires fulfillment, alongside office relocations, retail rollouts, and more. To achieve this efficiency, it’s important to optimize your storage logistics, which includes storage space, layouts, and processes. 

Calibrating these aspects can lead to significant gains in productivity and overall cost savings, making for a more efficient overall process. 


Storage & Warehousing Tips

To improve your storage and warehousing operations, it’s important to master certain components of storage logistics – most notably storage space, layout, and warehousing technology. We’ll start with how to optimize your storage space and layout.


Optimize Your Storage Space & Layout

Start by taking a look at your current storage setup, and asking yourself a few questions. For example, are you efficiently using all available space, both horizontally and vertically? Having rack storage, a core feature of Pyramid Logistics’ warehouses, may help to better utilize vertical space, doubling or sometimes tripling storage capacity. 

Another consideration is whether your layout is geared toward maximum speed and efficiency. You might consider using high-density areas for fast-moving items and reserving space for overstocked or slower moving cargo. Aisles should also be clear and wide enough for forklifts and order pickers to safely move across. 

With a few tweaks, your storage setup and layout plan can be streamlined, allowing for faster order processing and happier end-customers. Another necessity for any warehouse is the technology that supports it, including warehouse management systems, file protection alarms, and more. 


Leverage Technology for Efficient Storage Logistics

Modern technology enables efficient storage and warehousing in several ways, from warehouse management systems (WMS) to file protection alarms that keep cargo out of harm’s way.

With a WMS, business owners can gain real-time visibility into stock levels, helping them optimize replenishment and picking. For one-off storage projects such as for trade shows or relocations, a WMS allows you to keep track of shipments through every step of the process. As for file protection, many warehouses will feature in-rack sprinklers to keep cargo safe from fire damage, alongside alarms and video surveillance for added security.
