How to fit out your eCommerce warehouse

All Storage Systems_August Blog

Optimise delivery times, have greater control over your inventory, and boost customer satisfaction levels.

In the wake of the pandemic in 2020, we saw an increased engagement in online purchases growing by 57 percent and Australians spending a record $50.46 billion online. In response to the sudden online shopping boom, the demand for e-commerce warehouse space per annum is expected to reach 490,000 square meters over the next few years.

For these reasons, it’s vital that eCommerce site owners – whether they plan to outsource their stock management to a 3PL (Third Party Logistics) supply chain, or manage it themselves – use the most safe, efficient, and reliable storage solutions possible in order to optimise their work flow.

Here are just some of the many ways that All Storage Systems can help you fit out your warehouse for greater productivity and efficiency.

Storage Cabinets and Bins

Storage cabinets

Whether you need to store tools, documents or spare parts, the All Storage Systems cabinets come in a range sizes to suit all kinds of applications. The adjustable shelving makes it easy to stock items of various sizes in one cabinet. And the sturdy 3-point locking system gives you the assurance that your stock is safe at all times.

Bins

Our plastic bins, buckets, and accessories come in a range of designs, giving you the freedom to store your commercial goods in the safest way possible while saving on precious space. The Enviroskate let you stack multiple Stack & Nest Crates on top of each other. While the Mega Bin is ideal for industrial, agricultural and manufacturing applications, especially for storing food, small parts, and recyclable materials.

Material Handling Equipment

Pallet Trucks and Scissor Lifts

Ideal for lifting and transporting pallets with stock on them, you can choose from a range of Hand Pallet Trucks, Semi Electric Pallet Trucks, and even Electric Hydraulic Scissor Lifts. The Hand Pallet Truck features a totally sealed hydraulic pump with a slower lowering hand control valve, making it easy for the user to safely and gently raise and lower the pallet truck. While the Semi Electric Pallet Truck has a built-in battery charger, features smooth quiet operation, and produces no fuel emissions for cleaner air.

Ladders

Being able to access tall, hard-to-reach places is vital to a safe working environment. To help you get where you need to be, our range of Ladders & Safety Steps can help you do just that. Our Fibreglass Platform Step Ladders feature large, anti-skid work platforms to keep the ladder secure at all times, plus a welded back leg for greater rigidity and support. On top of this, the Order Picker Ladders come in a range of heights to suit your needs, and come with wheels which make them easy to transport around your warehouse with ease.

Step-Ups

Strong, durable, lightweight, and fully fitted with non-slip tape, our Step-Ups help you reach those tall spots; without requiring the use of a ladder. You can even purchase a Jumbo Teamstep to provide a larger deck size for your employees. You can also stack multiple Step-Ups of the same type on each other, saving on precious warehouse space.

Tiered Trolleys

Multi-tiered trolleys make it easy for pick packers to collect and transport items of various sizes in one trip. The Heavy Duty 2 Tier Platform Trolley is constructed from fully welded steel and features a durable powder coated finish, ensuring that your trolley is built to last with zero maintenance required. Need to transport multiple small items at once? Consider the ALSTOR 3-Tier Trolley, which includes 4 swivel castors with two brakes, making it easy to navigate around the warehouse and come to a complete stop at short-notice.

E-Commerce Warehouse Design Tips

 Optimise Pick Path route

Pick Pack refers to the route that a picker takes through the picking area to complete their picking tasks. Optimising the pick path route requires putting a lot of time and thought into coming up with a strategy that will help decrease total travel time, control aisle congestion, and enable you to predict behavioural patterns to accommodate for times of increased demand. (i.e. increased online orders during the holiday season).

 Make use of vertical space

With built-in standing fixtures like Mezzanine Floors and modular Longspan Shelving solutions.

 Safety first

Install Convex Mirrors near corners and junctions to increase the field of view for your employees and visitors, including forklift drivers, truck drivers, and pedestrians. Install Bollards around the perimeter of the warehouse to restrict where vehicles can and cannot go, so as to establish a safe distance between pedestrians and vehicles.
