We believe it prudent to plan for future expansion when selecting a site or expanding the existing warehouse. Many issues impact the maximum facility size permitted on a particular piece of property. Local ordinances may limit the building height, truck access, building orientation, maximum lot coverage, set-backs from property boundary etc..
Planning for maximum expansion on the site help ensure the most efficient facility configuration and identifies potential future limitations to growth of the warehouse inventory (not necessarily business volume)
Some typical areas to pre-plan:
- Customer Pickup
- Clearance Center
- Corporate Offices
- Truck Access
