Bulk storage signs

ONE2ID bord magazijn bulklocatie opslag zone

Bulk storage, inventory storage, inbound, outbound… whichever name you put to your warehouse storage locations, they all have one thing in common: they need proper identification. Whether your operators are seated in a forklift or reach truck, or standing on the warehouse floor, they should be able to read, recognise and scan the identification used for the different locations. The label advisors at ONE2ID can advise you on how to optimise your order flow to ensure a timely and error-free delivery to your customers.

Why use bulk storage signs?

In most warehouses, the inventory or temporary stock is stacked on the warehouse floor, on the upper levels of pallet racking or both. If you don’t want to waste precious time during order picking and restocking, these locations need to be documented in your digital warehouse management system (WMS). Clear and concise bulk storage identification provides the answer.

Why not lighten your operators’ workload by using well-designed warehouse signs. They will enable your warehouse employees to work more efficiently in less time, which in turn will increase customer satisfaction and improve your overall turnover.

Any sign you order from ONE2ID will be designed to your exact specifications. During our initial assessment we offer advice on the size, the printing and the mounting of your warehouse signs. If your signs need to include barcodes that correspond with your warehouse management software, we will custom design those for you. Bulk storage signs that are to be suspended from the ceiling benefit from special reflective label material that will quadruple the scanning range of long distance scanners (up to 25 metres).

Our standard assortment consists of signs in several different shapes and sizes that are available in yellow and white. Should you require a different colour, feel free to contact us or visit out knowledge base to view examples of warehouse signs we have already produced for our customers.

Mounting your bulk storage signs

There are several options when it comes to mounting your bulk storage signs, depending on the location you choose. Our signs can be fitted with pre-drilled holes, hooks and chains for suspension from the ceiling or, alternatively, with tape or magnets attached for easy installation on the side of your pallet or pick racking systems. You can also opt for our ID-Rail system to neatly arrange your overhead bulk storage warehouse signs side by side in an orderly fashion. Please contact our label advisors if you’d like some advice on how to install warehouse signs.

Signs or labels?

The label experts at ONE2ID recommend the use of PVC signs with a reflective barcode for long range scanning. On occasion, however, mounting the signs to the ceiling may not be an option, for instance when:

  • The ceiling is too high.
  • There is no room to put any signs.
  • Long range scanners are unavailable.
  • Stacking is too high, thereby obscuring the visibility of the signs.

In these specific cases, we advise the use of floor labels. Warehouse floor identification is also recommended when the PVC signs suspended from the ceiling are located too closely together thereby making it difficult to match the sign with the location. A well-designed label placed on your warehouse floor will tell you in an instant which barcode belongs to which location.

Types of floor labels

ONE2ID offers several standard-sized solutions for floor identification. Warehouses with very little traffic can benefit from the cost-efficient Economy label. This type of label is made from polyester and has a protective lexan topcoat. It’s easy to apply and provides your bulk storage locations with legible identification.

Work environments that employ moderate to heavy fork lift traffic pose a challenge to floor identification. Our floor frame kits are the answer to your needs. These durable kits are made of metal and are fitted with a protective perspex cover which prevents the label underneath from being damaged by tyres or pallets that are being dragged across the floor. The frames come in two different sizes that include a replaceable label, so you’re sure to find a kit to suit the demands of your warehouse environment.
