Utilise your wasted air space!
Optimising warehouse space is essential for meeting increasing customer demands. Traditional storage methods can be ineffective as they consume excessive resources in relation to time, man-hours and space. That’s where Kardex’s cutting-edge intralogistics solutions come into play. Our automation technology offers high-density storage within a minimal footprint helping to optimise your warehouse space.
It’s smart to exploit the height of your warehouse, efficiently utilising the floor-to-ceiling void thereby maximising the use of available space. Vertical storage systems such as Vertical buffer modules (VBM), Vertical lift modules (VLMs) and vertical carousels utilise the vertical space in your warehouse. These systems can store items in a compact and organised manner, reducing the need for large aisles and maximising storage capacity.
It’s no secret that automated retrieval systems significantly increase storage density. The use of robotics to retrieve items and bring the item directly to the operator is another sure way of minimising the number of aisles and liberates additional areas within your production facility, further eliminating the need for manual searching and thus reducing the space required for aisles.
A major benefit of automated solutions is digitalisation. With smart software such as Kardex Power Pick, a warehouse can increase picking speeds and efficiency to ensure all stocked items are delivered on time for efficient picking whilst delivering a tailored solution based on material process and fulfilment flow.
In the end, It’s worth talking to the experts so that they can assess your warehouse layout and provide customised solutions to optimise space utilisation. They can help you design an efficient warehouse layout that maximises storage capacity and minimises wasted space.
