As warehouses get larger and more complex, saving time and reducing error and strain is more important than ever. Customers expect their items faster, and workers have more orders to fulfill, less time to fulfill them, and more ground to cover. It almost seems like an impossible situation but with the right materials handling equipment, warehouse personnel can work better and more efficiently to deliver customer satisfaction.
One important piece of warehouse and shipping equipment that greatly aids workers but often gets overlooked is the mobile pushcart. It might seem funny to think of a cart as a revolutionary piece of materials handling technology, but warehouse and storage carts come in a variety of styles and have a variety of uses that can make workers more productive while reducing physical strain and logistical frustration.
The warehouse is a dynamic space with objects constantly flowing in and out and it’s essential to optimize how objects get from point A to point B in your space; carts are useful moving and storage tools, as they’re slim, portable, and space-efficient. Carts have a practical application at nearly every juncture of the supply chain – from unloading, picking, packing and shipping, carts aid with storage, transportation, and organization. In short, carts help keep things moving.
For instance, imagine having to unload a large, flat-screen TV at one end of the warehouse and bring it to the electronics storage and shelving area at the other end. Without a cart, that’s a pretty daunting task; struggling to carry an 80 lb television for hundreds – or even thousands – of square feet is not an efficient use of time and resources. And this becomes especially true when unloading, picking and moving multiple items – having a sturdy, spacious cart reduces back-and-forth traffic, helps with order organization and consolidation, and prevents unnecessary physical strain.
