How To Remove Warehouse Clutter

Preferred Equipment Company

A good, efficient warehouse is clean and completely free from clutter – here are some tips from Preferred Equipment Company reps to achieve that in your warehouse as well:

  • Add bins wherever you can – there is a lot of packing and unpacking going on in warehouses and both activities tend to generate waste and clutter. Make disposing of waste materials easy by installing waste bins all over the place – emptying those bins is easier and faster than picking up clutter from the floor;
  • Reorganize the space if necessary – take a critical look at the current layout of your warehouse and try to figure out whether there is a way to make the stacking and the picking easier and more efficient. Consider the distribution of the goods based on their importance – the goods that you don’t need to access frequently can go to corners that are harder to get to, while your most frequently accessed goods should be placed in areas that can be accessed easily. Evaluate the efficiency of your space usage on the vertical axis as well – keeping goods stacked will leave you more floor space;
  • Consider getting an exterior storage unit – adding a container is an excellent way to free up warehouse space and to declutter while also keeping the items that are not frequently needed.
