Why is Material Handling Important?
The success of any company’s supply chain greatly depends on material handling. If your business involves the distribution or manufacturing of products or materials (any type, any size), your team needs the ability to store and move items from one location to another with safety, ease and efficiency. Whether you have a large warehouse or small storage facility, access to your inventory is crucial to meeting (or hopefully exceeding) customer demands. You will want to maximize your storage space to accommodate as much inventory as possible while also implementing safeguards to prevent workplace accidents.
One of the simplest ways to maximize storage is by going vertical. However, without proper planning and attention to how the items will be retrieved, stacking inventory haphazardly can have catastrophic results (personal injury, destruction of inventory, etc.). Pallet racks are an effective way to organize your inventory. There are a variety of secure, adjustable options to meet your needs: racks for heavy loads, high-volume, perishable products, dense storage and more. Lynch Material Handling has a large inventory of in-stock pallet racks in Colorado and they have the expertise to guide you toward the right style for your materials and space.
Warehouse automation is another effective way to organize and access your inventory. Automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) have a variety of configurations and accessories that can be implemented to significantly reduce your storage footprint while also giving you computer-controlled access to your inventory at the touch of a button.
There are countless other methods that can be implemented for your unique situation: modular storage systems, bins, totes, shelving, cabinets and much more. The experts at Lynch Material Handling can introduce you to options that meet your budget constraints.
When it comes to material handling, time is money. You don’t want your staff wasting time searching through unorganized warehouses to locate items. By investing in the right type of material handling solution, you may save money in the long run.
