Frequently Asked Questions

What is warehouse storage?

Warehouse storage refers to the methods and facilities used to store goods in a warehouse environment. It includes a variety of storage systems like racking, shelving and automated systems, designed to hold, protect and organise inventory efficiently. Effective warehouse storage is key to inventory management, ensuring goods are stored safely and can be accessed and transported easily when needed. In the UK, warehouse storage must comply with health and safety regulations, ensuring a safe working environment. The choice of storage solution impacts operational efficiency, cost management and order fulfilment accuracy.

What type of storage does my warehouse need?

The type of storage required in a warehouse largely depends on the nature of the goods stored. Common storage solutions include:

  • Pallet Racking: Ideal for larger, heavier items. Variants like selective, drive-in, push-back and flow racks cater to different storage needs.
  • Shelving Systems: Suitable for smaller, manually handled items. These can range from simple metal shelves to multi-tier systems.
  • Cantilever Racking: Designed for long, bulky items like timber or pipes.
  • Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (AS/RS): These automated systems are excellent for high-volume, repetitive tasks, improving efficiency and reducing labour costs.
  • Mobile Shelving: Maximises space utilisation by reducing aisle space.

Consider factors like item size, weight, accessibility needs and turnover rate. In the UK, health and safety regulations also dictate certain storage requirements and you should make sure you know those regulations. For more information and advice, get in touch with an expert member of our team to discuss your needs.

What is the best layout for my warehouse storage?

An efficient layout is crucial for maximising space and workflow. A U-shaped layout is popular, with goods entering on one side and leaving from the other, ensuring a smooth flow. Considerations for a good layout include the width of the aisles to allow for handling equipment such as forklifts and hand carts, safety and compliance, accessibility of stock, zoning of similar items as well as the use of taller storage items to maximise space. A Warehouse Management System (WMS) can help optimise the layout based on real-time data.

How much will a warehouse storage system cost?

The cost of warehouse storage in the UK varies widely. Factors which will influence the cost include the location – as warehouses in or near a major city, such as London, will cost more. The size and type of storage will impact the cost as customised racking or specialised systems will add to the cost. Automated warehouse systems have higher upfront costs for installation, but they save money in the long term as they generally reduce labour costs. Each warehouse storage system will vary in cost as no two systems are the same, so for a more precise idea of cost, get in touch with a member of our team for a free, no-obligation quote.

How do I calculate the storage capacity of my warehouse?

To calculate the storage capacity of your warehouse you need to first determine the total floor space that is available for storage and deduct areas for offices, docking and aisles. Next calculate the number or levels that are possible within the height constraints as well as the unit sizes, which will depend on the size of each storage unit, pallet or shelf. Specialised software can provide more accuracy and take into account factors such as aisle spacing and other specialised storage requirements. This can be a tricky thing to calculate and getting it wrong could prove costly – the answer is to contact our expert team who can make the calculations for you to maximise your available space and ensure that the right storage is ordered.

How can I maximise storage space in my warehouse?

Maximising storage space involves:

  • Vertical space utilisation: Installing taller racking systems and optimising shelf heights.
  • Mezzanine floors: Adding intermediate floors for additional storage.
  • Right-sizing storage units: Tailoring storage units to fit the size of the items stored reduces wasted space.
  • Warehouse Management Systems (WMS): These systems help in efficiently allocating space and managing inventory.
  • Regular inventory reviews: Eliminating outdated or slow-moving stock frees up space.
  • Automated solutions: Automated storage solutions can increase storage density and reduce aisle space.
