Clothing and Garment Warehouse Systems

What are Clothing and Garment Warehouse Systems?

Clothing and garment warehouse systems are specialised storage solutions that are tailored to the unique needs and challenges of businesses that deal with clothing and textiles, where garments are usually stored on static racking on cantilever arms or within a bay configuration. Garment racking is similar to pallet racking because the system consists of uprights and crossbeams. The crossbeams are circular or oval to accept hangers, and this system can easily be adapted to suit boxed storage using decking. For more complex operations, such as ecommerce distribution centres, Garment on Hanger (GOH) systems that involve suspending garments from roller trolleys are the more efficient and scalable option.

Advantages

  • Inventory Management: Clothing and garment warehouse systems provide accurate and real-time tracking of inventory levels, helping track stock levels and prevent overstocking or understocking.
  • Faster Order Fulfilment: Warehouse systems optimise the picking and packing process, guaranteeing shorter delivery times.
  • Space Optimisation: Efficient storage and retrieval systems maximise the use of available space in your warehouse, allowing for a higher storage density without the need for bigger premises.
  • Higher Order Accuracy: Garment warehouse systems include barcode scanning and automation to ensure order accuracy and reduce the risk of human or shipping errors.

Garment Racking Details

Garment racking is the easiest way to store clothing when items need to remain available for picking.

Technical Specifications

The technical specifications of garment warehouse systems vary widely depending on the software and hardware components chosen as well as the warehouse dimensions and the unique requirements of your business. There are however some common technical components which are as follows:

  • Warehouse Management Software (WMS): This software may run on various operating systems such as Windows, Linux or a cloud-based platform.
  • Hardware: Servers, barcode scanners, mobile devices, RFID Readers, printers, network infrastructure and PCs or terminals are all crucial for picking and shipping tasks.

 

Garment Racking System Accessories

Garment Racking Systems are compatible with a wide range of accessories such as:

  • Hangers: Different types of hangers such as standard garment hangers, clip hangers or speciality hangers for items like trousers or skirts are compatible.
  • Overhead Monorail Systems: These are an efficient and cost-effective way of handling products to and from static locations.
  • Shelving Inserts: Some garment racks have adjustable or removable shelving inserts that enable you to store folded clothing or textiles, increasing versatility.
  • Wire Baskets: Wire baskets or bins can be used to hold smaller items on racks.
  • Shoe Shelves: These can be attached to the garment racks to hold and organise shoes.
  • Accessory Hooks and Pegs: These can be added to hang accessories like scarves, belts and hats to make them more accessible.
  • Shelf Dividers: These help separate and organise clothing items on the shelves, preventing them from falling over or becoming disorganised.
  • Display Arms: These are typically used to showcase specific garments or create displays.
  • Garment Covers: Plastic or fabric garment covers protect clothing from dirt, dust and damage. They can be hung from the racks or used to cover individual items.
  • Wire grid panels: These can be added to the sides of garment racks for additional display options and the attachment of hooks or shelves.
  • Garment Sorting Systems: These systems include conveyor belts or racks with sorting compartments that streamline the sorting and distribution of garments in large-scale operations like laundries or dry cleaners.
  • Anti-Tip Braces: In settings where safety is a concern, anti-tip braces can be used to prevent garment racks from tipping over.

Other accessories include label holders, garment trolleys, storage bins and garment rails, all of which help optimise the organisation and functionality of garment racking systems across a selection of industries, including retail stores, warehouses, and laundry facilities. The right accessories will depend on your individual business needs.

Garment Racking System Benefits

Enhanced Warehouse Storage Efficiency

If you are managing a warehouse that deals with a large volume of clothing, specialist clothes racks will improve your efficiency compared to other traditional forms of racking as you can adapt garment racking to enhance organisation and automate parts of the picking process for greater efficiency and accuracy.

Reduced Labour Effort

Garment on Hanger (GOH) systems suspend garments from roller trolleys, and overhead monorail systems can be installed to move products to and from static locations, which means that for complex operations such as e-commerce distribution centres, you can get your garment storage system to do the work for you, making your process highly cost effective while reducing labour requirements.

Static Racks for Smaller Operations

For smaller operations, garment racking is a great option for organising racks to improve product management and keep the picking process streamlined. Quickline sells static clothes racks which work very well in simple stock rooms.

Accurate Management of Goods

With the ability to integrate Warehouse Management Software (WMS) garment racking is an ideal solution for warehouses where clothing transportation flows in and out at high capacities. Not only can it enable you to track the journey of each item of clothing; it can give your company greater visibility of stock levels and profit to make well-informed business decisions going forward.

Accelerates Order Fulfilment

The combination of automating the picking process and Warehouse Management Software is a great option for warehouses that have complex operations, streamlining the order fulfilment process, keeping both you and your customers happy.

Easily Customisable

Depending on your warehouse dimensions and function garment racking can be adapted to suit your requirements. Whether you have a small stock room and need some static racks to a large warehouse managing high volumes of clothing that needs a more automated process, Quickline has an option for you.
