Block stacking is a simple form of warehouse storage where goods are placed on the ground and stored on top of each other in blocks or lanes for easy access and safe movement around the warehouse.
It’s a more affordable storage solution that works well for businesses who need to store smaller units of goods at one time or who don’t offer/require fast shipping to their customers.
IS BLOCK STACKING RIGHT FOR YOUR BUSINESS?
Before opting for this type of business storage, you should carefully consider whether block stacking suits your business needs as there are some limitations with this system, including:
Poor ventilation, so this will not work if you are storing perishable goods
Uses the last in first out method because goods stored at the bottom of the stack cannot be accessed until the goods on top of it are removed which can slow down order picking
You will need detailed knowledge of predicted and current stock output levels to avoid honeycombing
Can increase the risk of damage to goods which is not ideal for premium or high value products
