How to improve warehouse efficiency

A well-designed warehouse process flow boosts the efficiency of these operations and maximize the productivity of the company. As a result, this clearly has also a positive and satisfying impact on the purchase experience of customers. Rulmeca is a global leader manufacturer of unit handling solutions for several application fields, including customized systems designed for numerous customers wondering how to improve warehouse efficiency.

How to improve warehouse efficiency

A crucial aspect of an effective warehouse is certainly the accurate and organized arrangement of stored goods, in order to easily access and pick them. However, there are other important aspects determining the productivity of a warehouse: operations efficiency, used spaces, energy and costs. Traditional warehouse systems have large spaces and aisles to allow forklifts going back and forth in the storage to load and unload goods. This often slows down the flow of operations, increases consumed energy and entails high managements costs. So, how to improve warehouse efficiency? Excellent solutions to rely on are certainly modern dynamic storage systems, whose design ensures all the above-mentioned advantages. Of course, as leader manufacturer company in the field, Rulmeca includes them within its wide range of unit handling solutions.

Rulmeca flow storage solutions

All dynamic storage systems manufactured by Rulmeca use the force of gravity to guarantee easy loading and unloading of goods. In order to meet all demands, our solutions are basically based on First in – First Out (FIFO) or Last in – First Out (LIFO) logics. The first system has one single load front and one single pick-up front, while the latter has a unique load and pick-up front. First of all, after a careful analysis of the customer’s situation, this alternative allows us to meet all demands, ensuring the intensive storage of both high and low turnover goods and of both perishable and non-perishable goods. Moreover, despite their basic difference, both solutions provide the same advantages. The fact that stored goods regularly move by gravity avoids the need of big spaces and numerous paths between the shelves compared to traditional warehouses. This is certainly a cost-effective solution which provides energy saving, optimize all available space and streamlines operations reducing necessary time for preparation and execution of orders.
