It can be an exciting time when business picks up at your distribution center. However, it can also be a little stressful, especially if your capacity needs have started to outpace the amount of space you have at your disposal. You might think about moving to a larger facility, but the costs associated with moving can make this option out of the question. What do you do? A mezzanine is a great, cost-effective option to help you improve your capacity and processes at your distribution center. Here’s why.
Adding More Space in Your Existing Facility
A mezzanine creates an extra layer of space in your facility by utilizing the vertical dimension of your space. This mezzanine is simply a platform or floor that is installed between the main warehouse floor and the ceiling. This extra space can then be used as you see fit or as your needs dictate. Store extra products or other items in shelves or set up modular offices – no matter how you decide to utilize your mezzanine space, you can free up space on your distribution center main floor to streamline your processes.
Easy to Install and Move Around
Mezzanines don’t require much effort to install at all. No elaborate materials or procedures are required to erect one and your existing facility won’t need to be modified in any significant way to accommodate it. Moreover, mezzanines are freestanding structures, so they can be quickly dismantled and relocated if the need arises.
There are a few different mezzanine systems out there that can help you add more space at your distribution center. In addition, gates, stairs, flooring, and nearly every other component can be completely customized to fit in with whatever need you might require.
Best of all, a mezzanine works for your bottom line. It’s a cost-effective way to add space to your distribution center and you won’t have to worry about adding a permanent structure or pack up everything and move to a larger facility!
