Ware­house lay­out

Set­ting up a ware­house sounds sim­ple. You make sure you have enough racks and floor space to put your pal­lets away, and that's it. Yet there is more to set­ting up your ware­house than what you may think.

For starters, you have to make a choice con­cern­ing the fu­ture. What do you ex­pect to pro­duce in 1, 2 or even 5 years? Do you choose to keep your ware­house as com­pact as pos­si­ble now, with the risk that you will need to ex­pand with­in the fore­see­able fu­ture? Or do you fac­tor into your space cal­cu­la­tions that your busi­ness will grow? This in­volves fewer risks, but in prac­tice you store a lot of air. Dapp can ad­vise you on this by car­ry­ing out a ca­pac­i­ty study. Based on your pre­dict­ed growth and our ex­pe­ri­ence from the past, we can give you a good es­ti­mate of the re­quired space.

In ad­di­tion to the issue of the di­men­sions of your ware­house, you also want it to be a safe work­ing en­vi­ron­ment. The driv­ing and walk­ing paths should not cross too much, so that peo­ple and equip­ment re­main sep­a­rat­ed as much as pos­si­ble on the work floor. In ad­di­tion, it must also be pos­si­ble for this equip­ment, for ex­am­ple fork­lift trucks, to pass each other where nec­es­sary. 

An­oth­er point to con­sid­er is the height of your ware­house. The high­er you can stack, the less square me­ters of floor space you need. But is work­ing at height re­al­ly the best op­tion? For ex­am­ple, are the right tools al­ready present, or do they need to be pur­chased? All kinds of things you need to take into ac­count, and Dapp is happy to help you with them!
