Warehouse Design Consultants
Getting the right warehouse design
Getting the right distribution centre (DC) or warehouse design for your supply chain operations sometimes needs help.
The design of a warehouse clearly has a direct effect on warehouse operations, get it right and your operations will be more efficient and flow smoothly, get it wrong and they will suffer accordingly.
With such a critical area of the supply chain, it makes perfect sense to get expert advice and support from someone who not only knows warehouse design inside and out but will also listen to you and what your organisation needs.

Warehouse Design Principles
There are a number of principles involved in designing a warehouse with a good operational layout including:
- Allow movements to follow a logically sequenced flow
- Avoid cross-traffic and bottlenecks
- Avoid unnecessary travel or movement
- Always allow a sufficient space buffer between process steps
- Dissociate the resources allocated to critical tasks or activities
Further areas we would recommend considering include:
• Overall site flows of vehicles arriving at and leaving the warehouse site
• Requirements for parking and/or queuing of delivery vehicles
• Parking of trailers on site
• Security and gatehouse arrangements
• Pedestrian walkways and car parking facilities
While these touch on just a few of the principles and considerations involved, our warehouse design consultants can help you fully review your true requirements in each area to make sure nothing is missed or overlooked that could cost valuable resources later on.
