Why Warehouse Layout Design Is Important To Your Overall Success

A warehouse is a very large cost item, in terms of balance sheet, facility running costs, and equipment and staffing. Day to day utilisation costs can be minimised through efficiency of design that makes all operations as fast and effortless as possible with minimal materials handling. That implies that investing time and care at the design stage reaps rewards for the next 10 or 15 years. The converse also applies and unavoidable excessive overheads may be incurred on a daily basis through badly laid out and inadequate design, or through adopting a facility just because it exists and appears to provide a fast and convenient solution.

Any flaws or inefficiencies result in a range of negative outcomes from loss of competitiveness to a drain on finances that can pose a significant risk to the business if not remedied. Constant measuring and optimisation is the surest defence. On the positive side, optimisation is also an attack tool, increasing efficiency, competitiveness and service levels while contributing directly to the bottom line through reduced operational overhead.
