Streamlining Warehousing for eCommerce Business

October 8, 2019 4:08 pm

Many eCommerce companies find that they run out of storage as their business quickly expands. Some find themselves in the situation where they are storing products in several locations, making for a complex situation when filling orders, and adding to their overall operating costs. If this is the case, it is ideal to consolidate these locations into one warehouse location, and simplify the situation by storing smaller products on commercial steel shelving, saving money, as well as time.

Take Advantage of Ceiling Height
There are many steel shelving systems and cost-effective steel shelving configurations that befit any eCommerce warehousing needs – for instance – two-level shelving units that connect via catwalk so that order pickers can easily navigate between aisles. The idea behind this is to think vertically so that more industrial shelving is created upwards, taking advantage of ceiling height, as opposed to expanding floor space outwards. This type of system will not only improve product organization, but will also save time, resulting in faster order fulfillment.

Skilled Professional Installation is a Must
The steel storage shelving would, of course, be installed by skilled and experienced professionals, so that all of the products are organized and stored in one warehouse, making inventory management much simpler. More area can be created in a smaller floor plan by installing these double-deck units, taking full advantage of any vertical space using storage solutions and racks to keep products secure on the shelves. This enables eCommerce company owners and their staff to focus on what they do best – product development, order fulfillment, and new product marketing – to reach out to more customers and clients, and scale operations.

Ensure Safe and Secure Product
Storage High-density steel shelving systems make for smooth expansion. The double-deck commercial steel shelving units are reinforced with many features including railings, gates, and different staircase designs, which are engineered in accordance with safety regulations. This also serves to make the best use of floor space, which is for order pickers to navigate safely, and they will not have to walk as far to find what they are looking for. Overall, building upwards will allow for more organization, reducing both clutter and operating costs, as well as creating a safer environment for your team, as they navigate the warehouse.
