In any facility, your entire building is working to keep production on schedule. But there are some areas that see more movement than others.
Warehouse shipping & receiving spaces in particular can be some of the most chaotic in any facility. With product going in and out of the same space, there’s a lot for operators to keep track of. Proper organization is essential to maintaining tight production schedules and ensuring profitability. If you’re looking for ways to improve organization and productivity in your shipping and receiving office, modular design can help.
Let’s take a look at how to streamline warehouse shipping and receiving spaces with modular design.
When it comes to increasing productivity, the first place to start is how your shipping & receiving space is designed. How can you improve that design to better accommodate the work that needs to happen in your warehouse?
For example, many warehouse shipping & receiving spaces have to deal with large and oversized items, whether they be semi trailers, oversized products, or just unwieldy pallets stacked high. In any case, modular design can help you develop a shipping & receiving space that is right-sized for your warehouse’s unique needs.
Because modular office walls and other components are built according to your functional specifications, you can use modular design to develop a warehouse shipping and receiving space that fits your application exactly. From custom in-plant office heights to extra-tall roll-up doors, the customizability of modular components makes it easy to develop exactly the space your facility needs for shipping & receiving.
Shipping & receiving departments are often located at the exterior of your warehouse, which makes sense functionally. This location, however, means they’re often exposed to the weather, from extreme temperatures to wind, rain, snow, and more. You need a space that can shelter both operators and product for years to come, which means extreme durability.
There’s a misconception that modular warehouse offices and modular components, because they’re built for versatility, are somehow less durable than traditionally constructed components. This couldn’t be further from the truth.
In fact, modular solutions from manufacturers like Starrco are built and designed to weather both harsh climates and rugged manufacturing environments. Choosing modular components helps you get not only the custom space you need, but also the durable components you can expect to last for years to come.
Your shipping & receiving department is an essential component of your warehouse. When you’re building or upgrading that space, you don’t have time for weeks of construction. Modular design solves this problem easily.
Because modular components are prefabricated off-site, they arrive at your warehouse assembled and ready to install. Depending on the size of your shipping & handling booth, office, or space, installation can be completed in just days, and without the noise and mess associated with traditional construction.
That means almost no disruption to your warehouse’s daily operations. Simply install your new modular components, and your shipping & receiving space is back up and running in no time.
Modular construction offers a long-term solution for any warehouse, regardless of how your shipping & receiving needs may change in the future. Modular components are just as easy to reconfigure or expand or stack as they are to install. Should you need to expand shipping and receiving spaces for the busy season, you can easily add modular wall panels and features as needed.
In any warehouse, shipping & receiving is one of the hardest-working spaces. Make sure your shipping & receiving offices and spaces are built for durability and productivity. If you’re looking for better design and construction, contact the Starrco team.
