An efficiently laid out warehouse with clear location identification is an essential part of the logistical process. Yet, many warehouses still do not make use of (barcode) labels while many others would benefit from an efficient redesign of their rack labels. Redesigning or relabelling warehouse pallet racking, shelves and bulk storage locations is an extensive and time-consuming project. Our consultants will be happy to help you during the process by deciding on a fitting location coding system for your warehouse. Our production team will fully customise your pallet racking labels so that you will benefit from an efficient work process with faster turnaround times and fewer picking errors.
How to choose your pallet racking labels
ONE2ID can manufacture your pallet racking labels to suit your needs. Please take a look at a selection of the label designs we have created for our customers. In order to determine the type of label required, our label experts can plan a visit to assess your work environment and listen to your wishes. That way we can make certain you will receive the type of label that is ideally suited to your application. During our visit we’ll take a look at:
- The type of storage racks, e.g. pallet racking, drive-in racking, cantilever racking or carton flow racking.
- The colour and design of your load beams and upright frames.
- The dimensions of your load beams and upright frames (height, width, depth).
- The type of material and adhesive of your current pallet racking labels (permanent, non-permanent, magnet).
- Your current label design (positioning of the barcode, arrows, human readable information).
- The distance between the operator, the scanner and the labels.
- The use of light sources (Fluorescent light, LED etc.).
- The type of scanners in use.
- The use of barcodes, plain text, colour and arrows.
Colour-coded pallet racking labels
The dynamic 24-hour society we live in puts great demands on the planning processes in warehouses and distribution centres. There is an ever-growing need for faster delivieries which puts even more pressure on increasing your logistical output, which in turn increases the risk of unwanted errors due to fatigued and stressed out employees. By colour-coding your pallet racking labels, you can relieve some of the pressure, help reduce the number of errors and improve the day-to-day order flow.
Our client totalBED has been working with colour-coded pallet rack labels for several years now. In the video below, the director of operations and the warehouse manager share their experiences of working with colour-coding and the positive changes it has made their to day-to-day operations.
How to colour code your pallet racking
Apply the custom multi-colour pallet racking label to the lower load beam so your operators are able to scan the label. Next, apply the corresponding level colours to the higer beams to ensure easy and effective identification of your pallet racking levels and pick storage locations.
The addition of colour to your labels puts less pressure on your operators which will make them less tired as the day goes on and therefore less susceptible to making mistakes. This smart and simple solution not only reduces the amount of order picking errors but increases the number of satisfied customers.
We can also design multicolour labels that combine a location code with a barcode, should you need to scan the upper levels of your pallet racking. If your warehouse combines pallet locations with shelf locations, our designers can integrate both into one label design.
