1. Invest in protection heavy duty barriers

Because of the accidents to happen when forklifts move in the storage rack's aisle, investing in protection heavy duty barriers is required. By fitting into the ends of the racks, these keep the racks more sturdy and secure and prevent damaging of items.

2. Timber Decking

Though they can’t be transported without a pallet underneath, timber decking is a great option for smaller items that need temporary storage, or if you only use pallets for general storage and not transport. It is also an effective time saving method if you need to attach goods to a pallet before storing them.

By installing a camera system onto the forklift, operators will have a better view on the pallets before transporting. Besides, it is also an effective way to reduce paperwork as you don’t need to take note each time you add or remove something from the rack, the camera will do the work for you.

4. Storage efficiency

It is important to remember that the space of your pallet is bigger than the space you have for the items. Keep this in mind when organizing your goods to get the most from the space you have available.
