The increasing demands of today’s warehouse and facilities means that parts and items of many different sizes need to be stored in the most economic way possible. From large pallets of items to bulkier individual parts of various size and shape, many facilities need to provide a number of different industrial shelving and storage options to meet the changing needs of items in their care.


Bulk storage is one of the most convenient ways to increase your overall storage capacity while providing extra flexibility for larger, more cumbersome products. Here’s but a few of the benefits that specially-designed bulk storage can provide:


Storage for Heavier Items

As you might assume from the name, bulk storage specializes in keeping and storing larger goods. Whether it’s huge shipments of items that need to be kept together, larger individual items, or anything you need, the sturdy design and construction of these racks allows you to keep larger items for longer periods of time, safely away from smaller items that might need to be used more frequently or are at greater risk of damage.


Frees Up Room On Other Shelves

Another immediate benefit is that the sturdiness of bulk shelving means that more cumbersome items now have a special place to go. In many industries like construction materials or automotive parts, a lot of the items you need to keep in your facility might be of unusual shape or a bulky size. Bulk shelving can accommodate a lot of these items, allowing you to free up space for more frequently-used, standard-size parts and SKUs without worrying about moving anything around to compensate for it.


Reduces Need for Lift Equipment

Sure, many facilities can keep a forklift around for heavy lifting and transportation of items, but a lot of facilities simply can’t afford motorized lift equipment due to their size or design. Or maybe you only have one forklift and you need to reduce the amount of work and strain on it. Bulk storage is designed more compact than many other shelving types, allowing items to be stored by hand without the expense and time investment of forklift operators or other types of lift equipment. This helps to save room in your facility, reduce expenses by eliminating or reducing the need for lift equipment, and saving wear and tear on any equipment already in place.
