How to Organize Warehouse Storage Space

How to organize warehouse storage space

Knowing how to organize warehouse storage space will help you create a cleaner, more efficient workplace. At Commander Warehouse, we understand how important proper organization is for any warehouse. That is why we have put together some simple tips to help you create a more organized warehouse storage space for your employees.


1. Create a Floor Plan

Before starting to organize your warehouse storage space, it is always a good idea to create a floor plan so that you have a clear idea of where you want to store items and if there are any physical limitations with the building. When creating your floor plan, make sure that the way you organize everything can be easily understood and used by others, so that employees can be trained quickly.

2. Choose Storage and Shelving Solutions

The right type of storage and shelving solutions for your business will depend on the nature of the operation and the size and volume of products that flow through the warehouse. Consider purchasing a variety of shipping containers, storage bins, shelving, and racking systems so that products and tools of all shapes and sizes can be stored safely and with easy access.

3. Label Everything

One of the easiest ways to ensure that your warehouse storage space remains well organized is to label everything, including warehouse racking and shelving. Investing in high-quality warehouse label solutions will help improve inventory control, productivity, and warehouse organization.

4. Maximize Storage Space

When organizing your warehouse storage space, it is important to utilize as much of the available space as possible, including vertical space. Stacking items or using stackable shelving options will help maximize storage space, while also creating a cleaner, more organized warehouse. Consider placing less frequently used items higher up, in narrow aisles, or in harder-to-access areas, so that the fastest-moving items are easier to access and in close proximity to workers.

5. Perform Regular Maintenance

Once your warehouse storage space has been organized, it is important to keep up a regular maintenance schedule to ensure that everything remains in the proper condition. It is also important to ensure that all aisles are kept clear so that employees can walk through any part of the warehouse without running into obstacles.
