No warehouse space may be indicative of poor storage management according to Tim Hoj, CEO of Hoj Innovations, the parent company to WarehouseOS. Never confuse sales growth as a definitive sign that a fast-growing e-commerce company is running out of warehouse space. It might be a sign of growth, but it may be indicative of storage mismanagement. Before renting another warehouse or planning a larger warehouse location, it is wise to engage warehouse planning experts to determine the real reasons space is in short supply.
Over the past quarter (or past sales year) there has been an increase in sales revenue. To ensure the right inventory is available to meet customers’ demands, too many e-commerce firms, especially those moving from a “garage” warehouse jump to the assumption that increased inventory volume axiomatically translates to expanding the needed appropriate inventory storage space. HOJ Innovations has found that through modern materials handling and warehouse software virtual space of an additional 50 percent is common.
Bringing in warehouse experts can reveal current warehouse structures that are not working efficiently. HOJ Innovations creates a unique storage plan that works with each customer. Most e-commerce business know the 80/20 rule applies. Twenty percent of the total SKUs represent 80 percent of the revenue. Keeping fast-moving inventory (the 20 percent) in reach in a primary warehouse is best, while storing slower-moving or excess inventory in a nearby secondary warehouse.
