Managing Beer Keg SKUs in Warehouses

mobile pallet racking for craft beer kegsBeer and cider distributors are faced with constantly increasing competition and numbers of craft beers and ciders to be circulated through their beverage warehouse. Because of this constant growth, many distribution centers are quickly running out of space; however, since SKUs continue increasing every year, it's not realistic to continuously add on to their existing warehouses. Mobile pallet racking for craft beer storage in beverage warehouses provides a space-saving, safe, and efficient storage alternative that eliminates the need for expansion and can also be used in cold storage. Click here to see how the mobile pallet racks work.

Beverage warehouses are getting crowded faster and faster. Multiple pallet and keg moves increase equipment operating costs, while employees handle each craft and cider product between two and three times. The average worker touches 78 pallets per eight-hour shift. And with the average cooler costing $200 per square foot, saving space = saving money.

The mobile pallet racking holds more SKUs in less floor space than static racks while still providing 100% accessibility to all inventory, including slow-moving SKUs. The mobile construction of the pallet racks eliminates the need for aisles, which can waste 50% of floor space with static racking. On top of that, the mobile pallet racking is engineered to withstand temperatures as low as -4°F, with stainless steel available for temperatures even lower. Combined with other industrial storage solutions, you could save even more space, time, and money. Click here to see all of our warehouse and industrial storage solutions.
