3 Benefits of Rack Modernization for Warehouses

Rack Modernization

Large warehouses and other industrial facilities rely on their shelving and racking systems every day to keep their operation organized, safe, and running smoothly. While the right racking solutions can optimize various aspects of your operation, the wrong racking systems can have the opposite effect. If your facility is currently outfitted with outdated pallet racking solutions, you may be reducing your efficiency, safety, and overall operating potential. If you are considering methods for enhancing your facility, a complete rack modernization may be the perfect solution. That is why the experts at Commander Warehouse have put together a list of 3 benefits of rack modernization for warehouses to demonstrate why this service is well worth the investment.

Learn about the benefits of our warehouse design services and how they can optimize your operation.

3 Reasons to Modernize Your Racking Systems

A complete rack modernization can provide the following benefits for your operation:

1. Enhanced Safety and Visibility

Certain codes and safety standards for racking have significantly changed over time, especially for operations that handle certain products or materials. Failure to comply with these safety standards can result in significant fines or other negative actions. A rack modernization can ensure that your facility is compliant with all modern standards while increasing safety by allowing for optimal visibility and stability. Visibility is crucial for operations that transport large materials or products through narrow aisles or around sharp corners as it can help increase awareness for equipment operators and surrounding personnel. This minimizes the risk of safety incidents, ensuring that your operation continues to run smoothly and on schedule.

2. Increased Efficiency and Picking Accuracy

If your warehouse or facility requires same-day picking and packing, a modernized racking system can help. A modern racking system is designed to optimize picking accuracy by utilizing labels and high-visibility shelves. These systems can also increase efficiency by grouping similar products together instead of spreading them throughout the facility. By increasing accuracy, operators can quickly locate products/materials, pick them, and transport them. This allows for enhanced productivity in the same amount of time, increasing picking without requiring additional working hours or new equipment.

3. Optimized Storage and Work Areas

A complete rack modernization can optimize your storage capacity while allowing for additional workspace. This can be achieved through a combination of racking, vertical lift modules, mezzanines, and multi-level shelving, as this can increase storage while freeing up space for other operations. Though a rack modernization can improve your warehouse, it can be difficult to determine which options are best for your facility. The team at Commander Warehouse Equipment can work with you to determine the optimal racking solution for your current facility needs and available space.
