Thus different sectors with different functions can be well separated from each other to make the whole system reasonable and efficient.
Whether customers are well satisfied can be strongly determined by the order process efficiency of E-commerce. So for E-commerce suppliers, the guideline to design a racking system is to make sure goods can be mostly storaged and quickly delivered. Here are some good suggestions from Jracking:
1. How to plan the layout of storage racking
A perfect racking system needs to be communicated and discussed over and over according to the customer’s request about logistics management. For example, how to put popular goods, common goods or overstocked goods on different pallet racks to make sure they can be rapidly accessed? Moreover, different areas for different types of goods on the mezzanine should also be well discussed.
2. How to choose storage racking
Choose the best type of storage racking according to the type, specifications or weight of goods. You can also use pallet racking, heavy duty racking and longspan shelving in one warehouse.
3. How to design the construction of storage racking
