Warehouse storage options for small business fulfillment & distribution centers
SSI SCHAEFER offers storage facilities that meet your requirements. Regardless of whether you want to set up a new warehouse or want to increase capacity. From shelving to heavy-duty shelving to automatic storage, we not only offer the right storage space for every load carrier. We can also help you if you want to optimize the material flow.
All businesses start with a big dream but often have smaller requirements when it comes to order fulfillment and storage needs. As your business grows, you’ll need a fulfillment solution to grow alongside your revenue and customers’ expectations.
While it’s perfectly fine to start with a few shelving units or pallet racks or even outsource fulfillment when you’re an upstart, however, it can quickly become a nightmare. Bottlenecks happen and expenses for outsourcing rise quickly. In addition, storage space comes at a premium, and optimizing that space becomes critical —not to mention the need for accurate picking.
As order volume increases, the material handling process quickly becomes a stumbling block. Long search times and cumbersome processes hinder the material flow. Order fulfillment slows while process costs rise, risking customer satisfaction and profitability. These three points are critical for any fulfillment center—regardless of how small:
Staffing costs for shift work become too expensive, and qualified labor is difficult to find.
Shortage of space has now become a serious problem, along with the rising cost per square meter. Understand how to optimize your current space.
Poor performance and frequent product damage start to occur during storage as you outgrow your manual process.
