Whatever you’re selling online, it is essential to make sure you make the most of the space for your stock.
This photo is just an example of how one of our particular customers has achieved just that, ensuring every last centimetre of space is maximised. It’s very important to make sure you’re not paying for ‘thin air’ this is why we can offer our customers a shelf rate as well as a single or double rack rate.
Ensuring the shelving is adjustable for height is critical to getting the most out of your space and then also taking the time to stack shelves neatly, logically and orderly so that everything can be found quickly and minimising the risk of any potential errors.
Products that look similar, but are not, should be placed in different locations to avoid any unnecessary picking or re-shelving mistakes. If barcoding isn’t a cost effective option for you yet, then numerical systems can work extremely well. We code our products using a price gun, simple but very effective! Especially when it is so easy to code every single item in the warehouse with a single ‘click’.
With stock volumes fluctuating during seasonal peaks and troughs, it’s a great opportunity this summer – before the onslaught of September(!) – to get your inventory checked and up to date, your space maximised and gear up for the inevitable rush of orders when everyone is back from their holidays.
