When space planning for your warehouse, analyzing your storage options can be intimidating for first-timers. There are so many variables outside of the building location and cost per square foot that need to be analyzed. What about determining the proper size of your space? Then throw in the different types of pallet rack systems and forklifts. How do you know if you are maximizing your dollar for the space you are about to lease?

The following table is a basic example of how we can help you estimate the size of a warehouse that you might need, giving you the confidence needed to make the best decision for your company. This information can be calculated by gathering some basic information about your operations. We can then assess and analyze the different warehouse storage options you have available.

For example, if you need to store 7,800 pallets, we can chart out the available options and determine some warehouse sizes based on the type of pallet rack, pallet height, forklift style, and aisle widths. The example shown here is for a selective (single deep) pallet rack. Push-back, drive-in, and pallet flow rack all have their own data.

Cost per Pallet

Please note that not all of these options are practical.  They are just shown for comparison purposes.
