Prior to the move in to a new warehouse it is important that the plans of the warehouse racking and layout is finalised. Once stock is in the new warehouse it will increase the difficulty to arrange the layout.
Along with this planning goes the planning of stock locations. From this data you can establish a step by step process of the best order to transfer stock from your current warehouse to your new one. You will need to consider the time and the number of staff required to carrying out the move and even add in extra time just to be safe.
A warehouse racking relocation won’t only involving the packaging of stock for the transport but also the unpacking when it is received in as well as checking off that it is in good order to be able to be sold to customers, so no damage during transport.
Your staff may need time to adjust to the new warehouse layout, if it differs from your current one.
