Warehouse optimization consulting services 

Warehouse optimization consultants are industry experts who bring a wealth of knowledge and experience in warehouse project management to help businesses transform their warehouses into high-performing, efficient hubs. 

A provider of warehouse optimization consulting is essentially tasked with identifying opportunities to make significant financial savings by improving workflow within the space.

Warehouse optimization consultants stay on top of the latest technologies and trends in logistics, so they can quickly identify sub-optimal or outdated elements of your operation and recommend alternatives.

A key element of warehouse optimization consulting is the analysis and recalibration of floorplans and layouts to enhance accessibility, minimize travel time, and maximize storage capacity. This ensures that the physical arrangement of racks, aisles, and workstations aligns with the overall operational strategy. 

Your optimization consultant will also evaluate all of the equipment within the facility, assessing the type of infrastrucutre in place — such as the type of industrial storage racks being used — as well as how it is set out.

Consultants then help in creating detailed project plans based on agreed and realistic timelines, and coordinating various aspects of the optimization process, as well as overseeing the proper implementation of agreed changes.  

5 key warehouse elements a consultant will evaluate 

Your provider of warehouse optimization consulting services will do a comprehensive study of all aspects of your facility setup. Some of the most important elements of the facility thatr your consultant will be analysing include the following:

1) Racking systems 

Racking is the backbone of many facilities and efficient utilization of vertical space is crucial to optimization. That means getting your warehouse racking layout right and making sure that you are using the right type of racking.

2) Collision protection 

Protecting valuable inventory, equipment, and staff from accidental collisions with warehouse protection barriers is imperative for any operation that has a significant amount of heavy goods and vehicles moving around. Choosing the right barriers and placing them appropriately is

3) Signage 

A properly planned warehouse signage system is critical to efficient organization and navigation within the facility.

Warehouse optimization helps keep people safe

Well laid-out and easily read signage helps guide people around the space, maintains organization, and relays critical information, such as safety precuations.

4) Floor marking 

Warehouse floor markings are usually painted or laid using furable tape to create transit corridors, help separate foot traffic from vehicles, and demark different zones within the facility. Choosing the right type of floor markings and layout is something a warehouse optimization consultant will help with.

5) Labeling 

Warehouse labeling is another critical element of an facility’s infrastrcuture, being key to stock management, as well as helping to guide people during activities such as line picking. Warehouse labels come in a variety of types, based on their intended placement and the conditions they are used in.

Additional services your warehouse optimization consultant may offer

It is worth noting that a provider of warehouse optimization consulting services in many cases will be able to supply and install new infrastructure, based on their recommendations, and may also offer a range of supplementary services.

Those can include the likes of warehouse floor maintenance, to deal with the wear and tear that comes from having high volumes of goods, vehicles and people moving around the space.

Similarly, inspection and maintenance of key infrastructure, such as racking and safety barriers, will help prolongue the lifespan of equipment and keep people using it safe.

Another related services that a provider may also offer is industrial warehouse cleaning, going beyond day-to-day cleaning to implement specialised techniques, often involving chemicals and other treatments, to eradicate the most ground in dirt.

Some providers will even be able to help you with staffing up your facility, which may be referred to as part of business process outsourcing (BPO) services, or simply as recruitment process outsourcing (RPO).
