Increase Revenue with Selective Racks
October 16, 2012
With recent declines in the economy, many industries have been forced to find ways to increase their revenue and decrease downtime. Businesses with a high volume of storage are now coming up with ways to make their warehouses cost effective in order to increase revenue. One of the best ways to do this is to improve warehouse racking.
Selective racks are a type of storage system that have multiple levels of storage. The purpose of selective racks are to create an effective system of storing inventory which reduces downtime, saves money by increasing space in the warehouse, lowers capital costs and allows for more inventories on hand. Warehouse racking systems are commonly used to improve warehouse efficiency and help increase revenue.
Depending on your specific needs and what products your storing, selective racks can be four or five tiers in height and can hold thousands of items and materials that have been stored on pallets. In addition, these systems allow for an improved inventory tracking system. This method of stacking items will reduce line downtime leading to a boost in production and profits. Another benefit to consider is they can reduce product damage because of the reliable and durable stacking methods.
Selective Racks can hold a wide range of materials and products such as manufacturing equipment, large bulky items, household furnishings and fixtures, and much more. Russell Industries sells various types of pallet racking units including drive-in, push-back, drive-thru, pallet flow, and double deep selective racks. Warehouses can increase operational efficiency by handling fewer pallets, and reduce outside storage costs. There is also easy access to all items stored under the pallet racks.
To help increase productivity you can determine what products are moving and not moving. This allows you to adjust inventory to maximize profit and is a cost effective way to optimize warehouse space. Additionally, you can generate revenue by offering discounts and sales on items that are not moving. Storing items that are retrieved more often than others for quicker access can help reduce handling time. This allows you to streamline warehouse operations related to shipping and inventory management procedures, and becomes a very cost-effective tool.
Selective racks ensure lines are continuously stacked at all times and create more flexibility. These units are extremely sturdy as well as very large. They can extend up to the top of ceilings and are loaded using forklifts. Another benefit of using selective rack systems is that items can be stored according to size and storage environment. Furthermore, when a business is looking to cut costs and maximize productivity, selective racks are a great way to achieve that goal!
