3 smart tips to get your warehouse back in order

After a long period of doing things the same way in your warehouse, it can sometimes happen that processes no longer work optimally. It is time for a breath of fresh air. Perhaps the company has grown, adding more stock and you find that the flow is no longer as smooth and efficient as it once was. In this blog post, we give you a number of handy tips to make sure your warehouse is fresh again in no time and that everything is running smoothly again. So read on quickly! 

Analyse your stock
To get your warehouse as clean, fresh and tidy as possible, it is important that you take a good look at your current stock. Is everything that is currently in stock really needed? Are there old stocks that are no longer being sold? Is everything still in the best place with the ABC method in mind? Check everything and get rid of unnecessary stock. This takes up space that you may need for new products. Especially when you are short on space, it is important to analyse your stock thoroughly once in a while.   

Make sure there is enough space
In order to make it possible for your business to grow in the future, it is important that you have enough space. Have you analysed your stock and were you able to get rid of some of it, but do you still doubt whether you have enough space? It might be an idea to think about other possibilities such as having a mezzanine floor installed. With a mezzanine floor, you can double the number of square metres relatively cheaply and quickly by adding a separate extra floor to your premises. 

Clean daily
A clean and tidy warehouse is the best and safest place to work, both for you and your employees. So make sure you have a fixed cleaning routine and keep it up to date daily. This way, your warehouse will not look run-down and the products will remain in the best possible condition.
