If you have one or more of these 
nagging warehouse space problems,

What Can You Do?

  1. If you need more warehouse space and don't want to (or cannot) move, then you need to squeeze every ounce of cube out of your present building. We have often increased both pallet storage and pick slot capacity by 50% or more, giving clients one or two more years of "breathing room".

  2. If you are plagued by "shipping errors", then you need a way to verify that the right amount of the right item was picked for every order. An inexpensive system that will have your pickers scanning each item for accuracy and count, can give you 99.9% order accuracy 

  3. Low order-picking productivity can be cured by "batch picking" 20+ orders onto a multi-shelved pick cart. Combine this with an amazingly effective "fishbone" picking layout, 100% pick verification, and picking directly into the shipping cartons.

    Think about it - Checking
    becomes a randomly selected and occasional activity. Packing involves merely stuffing and taping the cartons, and sending them directly onto the shipping dock.
    Achieve error-free piece pick rates of over 300 lines per hour, and the ability to cut man-hours substantially.

  4. If you are about to make major changes or move into a new facility to get more warehouse space, and you want to be sure to "get it right" this time, be sure and get professional help as early as possible. Because we design so much efficiency into the layout and slotting, we are often able to save clients thousands of dollars planned for a too-large facility and unnecessary expensive equipment!

How can you be sure you are getting 
the expert warehouse space help you need?

Answer these questions:

  • Are they specialists in saving warehouse space or just generalists? We deal with the "whole picture", but the first step is to design or redesign the use of warehouse space.

  • Are they completely independent, or do they "partner" with equipment vendors whose product they may push? We will help you find what you need, but we have no supplier partners, and never will.

  • Will the principal expert be working directly on your project or will you be assigned an intern or recent grad?  Art is always the "Master Craftsman". Any assistance is "grunt-work" only!

  • Will they really listen to you describe your needs and explain what they will do before you sign on? We want and need to know as many details as possible up-front, to determine if we are the right consulting company for you - and the plan begins to develop as we talk.

  • Will they tailor the project to your very specialized needs? This is precisely why we want as much information from you, as soon as possible.

  • How strong is their guarantee? Do they walk their talk? Our guarantee is absolute - we will continue to work until you are completely satisfied - at our expense, not yours!

  • Be sure to ask for references from recent clients. Not only do we have many references listed on our site, but there are more - and we will also help you contact them!
