3 amazing ROI opportunities for mobile racking systems
No shrewd investor drops their hard-earned money on breakthrough technology without considering its viability. Will spending on an innovation like high density mobile racking systems today be a lucrative business venture tomorrow?
1. When a business can hold more, it can do more
Businesses know space can be a valuable commodity, regardless of industry. For retailers and manufacturers, a diverse product line requires places for all the additional SKUs they’re charged with managing. For warehouses, extra room means extra opportunities to bring in new business and reap the benefits of demand-based vacancy rates.
High density mobile racking systems and industrial mobile racking technology reclaims space otherwise occupied by aisles that more often than not go unused. That means as much as 50 percent of an industrial storage area equipped with static shelving is literally squandered on space that’s hardly used. Mobile racking installations can either shrink the overall storage footprint to allow for greater on-site operational freedom or effectively double a company’s storage capacity without physically expanding. In either case, high density mobile racking systems imbue businesses with a greater sense of spatial economics that provides financial benefits year over year.

2. Businesses stay quick with high density mobile racking
Can mobile racking systems really keep pace with the speed of modern business? Competitive markets call for investments that accelerate operations, streamline processes and eliminate waste. Outfitting an industrial facility with high density mobile racking installations not only improves logistical throughput but can push companies to make more intelligent, data-minded decisions about how they conduct business.
Mobile shelving coupled with optional e-Pulse remote monitoring technology works with logistics teams to isolate increased traffic areas and restructure their legacy organizational strategies around adopting more comprehensive zoning and picking methods supported by the mobile racking technology. With ePulse software, managers and supervisors can track facility movement, examine which products receive the most attention and make small adjustments accordingly.
3. Innovating instead of renovating
Building on more room to a facility may improve gross production capabilities, but when one takes into account increases to energy footprint, construction costs and labor mandates – not to mention property rental costs, insurance, taxes and maintenance – who knows when that addition will actually return real value to the company?
When a warehouse or other storage facility has seemingly run out of space, expansion seems like the only solution. Thanks to mobile storage, it isn’t even a contender.
On the other hand, research conducted by Montel distributor revealed mobile storage modules installed throughout 20,000 square feet of reclaimed warehouse space would pay for itself in under two years and return more than $1 million in avoided costs after a decade of use.
Instead of increasing their size or spending money on fleeting managerial fads, businesses should simply strive to utilize the space they have more efficiently. To that end, investment in high density mobile racking systems is an investment in how well a company operates and keeps costs to a minimum.
