Our team has been providing warehouse planning services since 1986. This is a service that requires precise knowledge and years of experience. We bring over 150 years of combined material handling and warehouse planning experience to every job. From pallet racks to lifts and jacks, Conesco Storage Systems has experience planning warehouses with equipment of all shapes and sizes — we are your warehouse planning experts.
There are three fundamental principles of warehouse planning: safety, cost-reduction, and sustainability. Safety is the most important principle when it comes to warehouse planning. Properly trained employees must be used in order to prevent accidents from occurring. This can be done by using proper lifting techniques and having a safe working environment. Cost reduction is another major principle that should be considered when choosing which warehouse planning solution to use. An efficient warehouse planning system is a clear way to reduce operating expenses.
Lastly, sustainability is also an essential part of any warehouse planning solution. The goal of sustainability is to reduce the amount of waste produced within a facility. By investing in a sustainable warehouse planning solution, companies can help to conserve natural resources and cut down on their carbon footprint.

If you are thinking about starting up your own warehouse or storage system, you must know that the success or failure of a warehouse depends on how organized the warehouse is. If you’ve done your research you will find a lot of talk about “storage systems,” what type of storage systems people use, and plenty of discussion on what type of storage system is best.

Benefits of warehouse planning
There are several benefits to implementing a storage system in your warehouse including:
- More organization: A key component to any properly run warehouse.
- More floor space: The more floor space you have, the more you can store and unload, the more money you make
- More efficient warehouse: Efficiency is profitability
- Safer for employees: Storage systems create an order that helps keep employees safe
Warehouse planning increases profitability
Warehouse planning can help you streamline your human capital. It allows you to put your employees to work on more important jobs and free them up to focus on higher value tasks. You can automate anything from basic transportation conveyor to complex sorting systems. Understanding the challenges you face will help you determine what level of automation is right for you. If you have a labor shortage due to a lack of available workers in your area, then you might need to invest in automated storage solutions. If you have already grown beyond your current manual processes, you might be ready for more advanced solutions like robotic picking. Finally, if you have a growing eCommerce business, you might be interested in using automation to speed up your fulfillment operations.
Sustainable warehouse planning
Sustainability is an important topic not only due to public perception and legislation. Sustainable warehouse planning also saves companies money. Companies are starting to realize that if they want to stay competitive, they need to start thinking about ways to become more environmentally friendly. For example, load consolidation and route planning help reduce the amount of fuel consumed and emissions produced by moving freight around the country. These practices also help minimize the number of trucks needed and the amount of space required to store them.
“I was so impressed with the customer service provided by Conesco. The warehouse workers were very polite, attentive, and extremely helpful. I have never purchased warehouse storage equipment before, so I didn’t quite know what to expect. But the workers went above and beyond to ensure that my new materials were safely packed on my trailer for a 3 hour trip. They even gave us a spare ratchet strap! I highly recommend for anyone looking to purchase storage equipment.” – Adam C.
