When running any business which includes any form of stock, it is always a good idea to make use of a decent stock and storage system.
Besides from the obvious being, it will help increase your productivity when choosing stock, choosing to make use of a proper stock managing system will be of your company’s benefit, as it makes managing high customer orders a breeze.
So what stock system should you make use of?
What is a pallet racking system?
The introduction of the pallet racking system was the idea of including multiple storage techniques which formed a system that made use of several racks which was positioned on top of each other providing a multitude of storage levels above the ground so that the storage space above and below each of the units was or rather is used equally. This system has a multitude of benefits which we will get into at a later stage.
Why was the pallet racking system created?
The creation and the implementation of the pallet racking system were created and used due to the fact that many businesses and their success is largeif not solely dependent on how they find ways to meet the demands of their customers.
Now for companies like Amazon and eBay where they sell goods online, keeping up with the demands of their customers is an extremely difficult task, in Amazon’s case more so.
If we take a look at a company like Amazon, what do they do? They sell goods and products from anything to everything.
This means that they will need to make use of a storage system that can handle a large amount of stock and be able to look upon their systems where the stock item is and how many of the stock items that they have.
This requires three things, stock, a large warehouse and a pretty good stock capturing system.
If Amazon chooses to make use of a pallet racking system, they will have an extremely easy time completing customer orders as they would be able to look at their systems and see what the item code is, is their stock, if so what part of the warehouse would the stock be and what shelf on the pallet racking system would the stock be on.
It is as simple as that, every piece of stock item that they would have would be in a very easy and defined place within the pallet racking system and when it comes to stock takes each of the “bins” would be a rack or shelf of the rack, which makes stock take a breeze.
Another nice feature to some pallet racking systems is that you can make them mobile. Meaning that if you need to you can move the racking systems around.
