Poor space utilisation within a warehouse can be costly, both in terms of time and money. Multiple items may be crammed into a space, causing staff to spend unnecessary time searching for goods, or small products may be stored in spaces designed for something much larger, meaning you’re effectively paying to store air.
Having an effective layout and storage solutions in a warehouse not only improves productivity and efficiency, it reduces costs and can also present revenue-generating possibilities.

However, there are a few things to think about when you are considering a warehouse redesign.
