Tips to Maximize Efficiency in Your Warehouse

Across all industries, businesses are being asked to do more with less — and to do it all faster and more efficiently. That’s a tall order for many warehouses and plants, which are striving to pack in more product to less space and to move it all more quickly and cost-efficiently. To accomplish all of that, here are a few tips to maximize efficiency in your warehouse.


Use Your Space Smartly

Instead of building outward, many warehouses are building upward, to ensure every inch of space is used. That requires stacking more pallets per aisle, which can be facilitated by the use of high-capacity reach trucks. These lifts are designed to reach taller — many up to 40 feet — and carry heavier loads, allowing you to effectively construct aisles that maximize the space while also saving on pallet storage by reducing the square footage used. This equipment can also lead to faster retrieval times and better storage flexibility, which all supports a more efficient warehouse setting.


Build Your Fleet with Used Lifts

Investing in used high-capacity reach trucks  can take efficiency several steps further. Used equipment, like that offered in National Forklift Exchange’s wide inventory, helps businesses stay within budget without sacrificing productivity, or safety. With the amount saved on opting for used instead of new, you can afford to purchase even more equipment to speed up and optimize your work. What’s more, you can ensure you’re buying the right equipment. While a new narrow-aisle reach truck may be out of budget, the used version, at a more affordable price, is within reach—ensuring your warehouse is using the best lift to get the job done smoother and smarter.

With these tips to maximize efficiency in your warehouse, stretch both your space and your budget to stay on track for business success. Reach out to the experts at National Forklift Exchange today for on advice on which piece of machinery would be perfect for your worksite.
