logistics storage warehouse

Eric Ammirati • 6/5/2024

When we talk about moving and storing goods, every cubic meter is important. That’s why higher-ceilinged warehouses are more than just an architectural choice – they’re a strategic business decision.

The real estate development market for logistics warehouses rents or sells square meters, but its users make money with the maximum volume (cubage) possible to store or move in these spaces.

With the expansion of e-commerce and online sales operations, storage solutions require increasingly flexible and adaptable warehouses, seeking greater operational efficiency and maximum use of their volume. More than a question of concept, it is a question of how much money (goods or products) can be moved in the smallest square area possible (logistical efficiency).

Does high ceilings make a difference or is it just a matter of architectural design?
Higher ceilings in logistics warehouses offer a number of benefits, the most significant being the ability to increase the number of pallet positions available. This means that more inventory can be stored in the same square footage compared to another warehouse with a lower ceiling height, reducing the cost per unit of storage and improving overall warehouse efficiency or expanding your sales area.

Maximizing spaces and reducing costs:
By verticalizing the warehouse or making the most of its height-related potential, companies can minimize the need for additional properties or can hire fewer “square meters”, which often represents a considerable expense.

Higher rack or shelving storage systems can be implemented, allowing for more effective storage and the use of specialized equipment to access these heights safely and quickly.

High operational efficiency:
With more stored goods at your fingertips, collection and handling times can be reduced. This optimization of operations can lead to faster order fulfillment, a key performance metric in today's fast-paced market, where delivery time has been the big draw for many players, particularly in e-commerce.

Be prepared for the future
As businesses grow and the need for larger stocks increases, having a warehouse with higher ceilings means you are prepared to increase the volumes of products available. This characteristic can give companies an additional competitive advantage, allowing them to quickly adjust to market demands without the need for new spaces or more costly travel.

The benefits of installing operations in warehouses with higher ceilings in the context of a greater supply of pallet positions are clear.

In addition to the benefits highlighted above, we can also reinforce others such as: cost reduction, increased operational efficiency and scalability. As we continue to observe changes in consumer behavior and supply chain dynamics, one thing is certain: the advantages of verticalizing your inventory storage as much as possible will boost your business's profits.
