Warehousing and Pallet Purchases: Making Sense of It All

Pallet purchases are important process of operating a warehouse. Not every pallet is the same and you have to understand the entire buying process so that you purchase effectively. There are both wooden and plastic pallets. Much of what you decide to purchase is going to depend on the average weight of products and how they are being moved around the warehouse. If you purchase plastic pallets, they can be hosed down and reused easily because they are durable. However, they may not be as large as you need them to be, and they may not be modified in such a way that they work with your forklift. If you purchase wooden pallets, they are sturdy, work well with a forklift, but can break over time. The last thing you need is for the wood to shatter because of someone's inexperience within the warehouse. The pallets are large and can accommodate a significant amount of weight. By keeping all of this in mind, pallet purchases can be made more effectively. You can determine your needs for the warehouse and then purchase the pallets that are going to work the best. You also want to make sure that you are purchasing on a regular basis so that you never run out of pallets. There are likely going to be instances where your customers are purchasing by case instead of by pallet. They don't have the storage capacity for pallets and therefore it is your responsibility to sell them smaller quantities in order to meet their needs. When you are selling by the case, you are going to be breaking up the pallets and then sending them out differently. If you run out of pallets in order to break apart your own inventory, it can dramatically slow down operations – and you want to avoid this, whenever possible. It is imperative that you make sense of your warehousing needs in order to make the best pallet purchases. If you don't have a logistics manager, you can be making guesses as to what your warehouse actually needs and this is a mistake. Instead of hiring a logistics manager, it can be more advantageous to work with a third party. You can get the help lowering risks and costs because they handle the warehouse labor, the staffing, and the overall management. Think about the last time you encountered a problem with a pallet. It may not have been large enough, it may have been uneven, or the forklift found it difficult to pick up. Each of these problems need to be identified so that you can find pallets that solve all of these problems. There are more pallets available in today's market than ever before and you have to do some research before you simply begin purchasing them. Pallet purchases can end up making or breaking your warehouse operations. If you do your due diligence and explore some of the options and work with a third-party to handle all of the logistics around the warehouse, you can encounter less problems, contribute more to the bottom line, and avoid many risks.
