How Totes can Improve your Warehouse Storage


In the dynamic world of warehouse management every space counts. As SKUs continue to expand, warehouse operations need to become faster, and more efficient.

Warehouses need to be super-organized, since losing track of stock can have big negative consequences. With 50% of businesses pinpointing a shortage of warehouse space as their biggest challenge, making optimal use of space is another crucial consideration.

In this post we’ll discover that you can significantly improve these, and other, aspects of warehouse storage, by switching to PALLITE™ Inc’s new and innovative storage totes.

Challenges of storing smaller items in warehouses

Positioning and storing smaller, more delicate, items in the warehouse can be problematic, especially when dealing with a large number of SKUs. Being able to organize items efficiently, and preferably close together, is a challenge faced by many warehouse managers.

It’s also often difficult to make items easily accessible, whilst keeping them safe from harm.

The need to constantly move and rearrange items, if not performed efficiently, can lead to a decrease in productivity, with valuable time lost, as staff navigate their way through aisles.

From clutter, and inefficiency, to the risk of damage, traditional storage totes often fall short when it comes to efficiently organizing smaller items. They often lack the durability to withstand the demands of a busy, high-traffic environment, leading to frequent replacements and increased costs.

The limitations of traditional storage totes

Totes have been a fixture in warehouses for many years. However, traditional plastic totes tend to be cumbersome and inflexible, while most standard cardboard storage boxes are too fragile to store delicate pieces of equipment safely.
