Realize your warehouse’s needs and figure out your best course of action
Are you looking to maximize productivity and efficiency in your warehousing operation? A warehouse site survey conducted by the experts at Arnold Machinery Company can provide a customized, cost-effective solution. Our experienced associates can help you determine the best storage and organization solutions for your needs and budget.
What Is a Warehouse Site Survey, and Why Is It Important?
A site survey occurs when a knowledgeable warehouse consulting professional visits a facility to assess a business’s operations and work processes. The consultant will evaluate all crucial operational areas, like the loading docks, racking systems and material handling equipment, and prepare a detailed report that includes findings and recommendations for improvements. These suggestions strive to help warehouses operate more efficiently.
A warehouse site survey offers numerous benefits. It provides an objective third-party perspective that enables a company to make crucial improvements. For example, the consultant may recommend a layout change that enhances productivity or increases storage capacity. This information can also help the company create a safer work environment for its employees and comply with stringent OSHA regulations.
These surveys often focus on ways to cut costs, which is essential for keeping prices low and gaining a competitive advantage.
Discover Your Company’s Warehousing Needs
Every warehousing operation is different and faces a unique set of challenges. A site survey identifies and addresses the areas that directly impact your business, such as:
- Limited storage capacity: A lack of storage space is a common issue in many warehouses. We can recommend practical and cost-effective solutions like narrowing the aisles or installing a mezzanine system that prevents the need to relocate, expand or build a new structure.
- Outdated equipment: Is productivity decreasing in your warehouse? A survey could identify contributing factors like obsolete forklifts or other material handling equipment. We can suggest new and used options that increase performance without breaking your company’s budget.
- Inefficient processes: How long has it been since you’ve reviewed your work processes? A site survey can uncover inefficiencies that are minimizing performance and increasing operating costs. We can help you develop and implement strategies that remove unnecessary steps and save money.
- Hidden safety issues: Too many companies assume they’re following all the safety rules. However, it’s easy to overlook a potential hazard that could endanger your workers. A site survey can scrutinize every area of your operation and find these hidden risks before accidents and injuries occur.
