About Bowen Storage's
Warehouse Capacity Analysis

Our Warehouse Capacity Analysis service is designed to assist businesses in optimising their warehouse space utilisation while minimising costs.

We analyse existing warehouse configurations and operational processes to identify areas of potential improvement. Our team then develops customised solutions that increase storage capacity, reduce labour costs, improve organisational efficiency, and support the maximisation of inventory control.

Warehouse Capacity Analysis 1

When you partner with Bowen Storage for a Warehouse Capacity Analysis, you gain access to a range of benefits that can potentially significantly impact your warehouse operations and overall supply chain efficiency. With our expertise and tailored solutions, you can expect the following benefits:

Our analysis identifies areas of inefficiency in your warehouse layout, allowing us to recommend optimised warehouse storage configurations and utilisation techniques. By maximising the use of available space, you can store more inventory and streamline material flow, leading to increased capacity and improved operational efficiency.

With our capacity analysis, we evaluate your current warehouse’s ability to accommodate future growth and changing business requirements. By providing recommendations for scalable solutions and flexible infrastructure, we assist you in preparing for increased demand, expansion, and evolving market conditions.

Our analysis identifies areas of potential cost savings and resource optimisation within your warehouse operations. By implementing efficient space allocation strategies, optimising labour utilisation, and minimising equipment downtime, we help you reduce operating costs and improve resource productivity.

Through our capacity analysis, we identify opportunities to enhance order fulfilment speed and accuracy. By optimising warehouse layout, improving picking and packing processes, and implementing inventory visibility solutions, we help you deliver orders faster, reduce errors, and enhance customer satisfaction.

Our analysis ensures that your warehouse operations align with industry regulations and compliance standards. By evaluating your current practices and providing

Leveraging Bowen Storage’s Warehouse Capacity Analysis allows you to gain valuable insights, optimise your warehouse operations, and position your business for success. With our tailored recommendations and expertise, we assist you in unlocking the full potential of your warehouse and driving operational excellence within your supply chain.

There are two levels of analysis available within the Warehouse Capacity Analysis service.

Level One: A thorough analysis of storage capacity, space utilisation, and expansion planning.

Level Two: The outcomes of level one, combined with a performance evaluation, optimisation, analytical modelling, and simulation with continuous monitoring and improvement.

Overview of our Warehouse Capacity Analysis

Initial Assessment

Our process begins with a comprehensive assessment of your warehouse, taking into account factors such as layout, storage systems, and inventory levels. We consider the total storage area and usable space. This enables us to gain a robust understanding of your current capacity utilisation and identify any bottlenecks or inefficiencies.

Data Collection and Analysis

We gather relevant data on inventory volumes, SKU characteristics, and order patterns, leveraging advanced analytics tools and techniques. By analysing this data, we can uncover insights and practices that highlight areas for improvement in your warehouse’s capacity management.

Analytical Modelling and Simulation

Using sophisticated modelling and simulation techniques, we create virtual representations of your warehouse to simulate different scenarios. This allows us to evaluate the impact of various factors on your capacity, such as changes in demand, SKU mix, or operational processes.

Performance Evaluation and Optimisation

We evaluate the current performance of your warehouse, including throughput rates and space utilisation. This assessment assists us in identifying opportunities for optimisation and developing strategies to maximise your warehouse’s capacity while maintaining operational efficiency.

Space Optimisation Strategies

Based on our analysis, we develop tailored strategies to optimise the utilisation of available space in your warehouse. This may involve reconfiguring storage systems, implementing automation strategies, improving material flow, or adopting innovative storage solutions to maximise storage density and accessibility.

Capacity Expansion Planning

If future capacity expansion is necessary, we assist you in planning for growth. By analysing growth projections, evaluating space requirements, and considering potential expansion options, we help you make informed decisions to accommodate your evolving business needs.

Implementation Support

We provide comprehensive support during the implementation phase, guiding you through layout changes, system integrations, and process improvements. Our experienced team ensures a smooth transition and effective execution of the capacity optimisation strategies.

Continuous Monitoring and Improvement

We establish key performance indicators (KPIs) to monitor the effectiveness of the implemented capacity optimisation strategies. Through regular monitoring, data analysis, and continuous improvement initiatives, we ensure that your warehouse maintains optimal capacity utilisation over the long term.

How long does a Level One Warehouse Capacity Analysis typically take?

The duration of a Level One Warehouse Capacity Analysis varies based on warehouse size and complexity. Typically, it takes two weeks to complete. Timelines may be customised to meet client requirements.

How long does a Level Two Warehouse Capacity Analysis typically take?

The duration of a Level Two Warehouse Capacity Analysis varies based on warehouse size and complexity. Typically, it takes several weeks to a month to complete, including data gathering, analysis, and recommendations. Timelines may be customised to meet client requirements.

What tools or technologies are used in a Level Two Warehouse Capacity Analysis?

Level two warehouse capacity analyses utilise advanced technologies such as warehouse management systems (WMS), inventory management software, simulation modelling, optimisation algorithms, and automation solutions to gather, analyse, and interpret data for accurate capacity assessment and optimisation recommendations.

How can a warehouse capacity analysis assist me in planning for future growth and expansion?

A warehouse capacity analysis assists you in planning for future growth and expansion by identifying current capacity limitations, evaluating potential bottlenecks, and recommending strategies to optimise space utilisation, (level two) enhance operational efficiency, and accommodate increased inventory volume or changing business needs.

We are considering moving to a new location. Can you do a capacity analysis on a new site?

Yes, we can assist with new sites. The warehouse is mapped for its total square metres and the storage capacity in cubic metres and space used for fulfilment operations. We determine your warehouse’s optimal storage levels in different configurations and warehouse space utilisation options, providing you with the best options in the new facility.

What are the key deliverables of a Level One Warehouse Capacity Analysis?

The key deliverables of a warehouse capacity analysis include detailed information outlining current capacity utilisation, recommendations for improvements, optimised layout designs, and a comprehensive action plan to enhance efficiency and maximise space utilisation. We identify the full capacity of your warehouse storage for your specific storage purposes.

What data and information are needed for a Level Two Warehouse Capacity Analysis?

We require data such as SKU inventory levels, order volume, historical throughput, facility layout, and storage utilisation for a warehouse capacity analysis. Information on business goals, future growth projections, and operational constraints is also valuable for accurate analysis and recommendations.
