The goal of every warehouse is to maximize space and make the area more efficient. Most companies, however, assume that once they run out of space they have no other option but to build or move elsewhere. There are ways to improve your warehouse while using the space you already have. And, if you’re looking for a great business New Year’s resolution, maximizing what you have in front of you is a great place to start.
First, Define Your Goals for the New Year
You’ll need to decide what goals you have for this New Year. Do you plan on expanding inventory? Are you going to hire more employees? Before you can change anything in your warehouse, you must first decide your goals. That way you know what changes to make and you can do so with the future in mind.
Second, Take a Look at Overhead
Calculate your current overhead with your existing warehouse. You may be surprised at how much you’re spending – and how much more you would have to spend if you moved.
Try Improving the Space You Have
Instead of thinking “out”, think “up” with your warehouse. Most warehouses have excessive vertical space that they pay to heat and cool, but don’t actually utilize. With a warehouse mezzanine, you can use that vertical space, expand your warehouse and not move or encounter the costs of expansion – because you’re already paying to heat and cool that vertical, unused space
