If you’re in the supply chain or logistics industry, chances are you’ve heard of – and probably tried to implement – lean practices at your facility.  One step toward creating a more efficient cold storage facility that is often overlooked, especially in refrigerated storage environments, is analyzing the storage and shelving. Just switching to a smarter storage solution can help identify areas of waste – from poor product visibility to heavy congestion in aisles – and help you achieve many of your other lean warehousing goals at your refrigerated storage facility.
You’ve already begun implementing lean practices in your cold storage, but you might be missing a step that could save space and money – mobile storage.

Retractable Locker Benches Save Space at East Mesa Detention Center

Not every storage solution comes with a larger, renovated space to work with. In fact, many of our most innovative solutions have come from having to fit more of something—lockers, weapon racks, or shelves—in the same footprint of space. Take a look at how our in-house engineering department saved space in the locker room of the East Mesa Detention Center -- simply by rethinking the locker benches. #lockerbenches   #lockerstorage

From lifts to practices to walk-throughs to gameday - see how football equipment rooms keep track of all that gear.
Before game day, equipment managers are busy preparing their football equipment storage, apparel and gear. What’s really in the equipment room?

When it comes to production and manufacturing efficiency, lean is king. A 2010 study showed that almost 70% of manufacturers utilize some type of lean product management. However, the lean movement has been slower to take root in the warehousing and logistics sector, especially in cold chain storage. While many warehousing facilities lag behind, lean process improvements provide an opportunity to gain competitive advantage.

Lean is a process of continuous reduction and elimination of waste that many organizations have implemented to streamline operations, reduce costs, improve quality, and ultimately make their production more efficient. Lean principles originated with Japanese manufacturing philosophy, specifically at Toyota. There are many process improvement frameworks that underpin lean production, but one that resonates particularly well with cold chain storage is Kaizen, or continuous improvement. As new technologies emerge, cold chain warehouses have an opportunity to save and improve on energy and labor like never before.

The first step toward Kaizen is recognizing where improvement is needed – and that’s where the Seven Deadly Wastes can help. With your cold chain storage in mind, work through the following 7 Deadly Wastes to see where you could be saving money and time in your cold warehouse.
Working to eliminate the 7 Deadly Wastes in your cold chain storage can help your warehouse follow lean practices.

The words “farming” and “agriculture” conjure up images of sprawling green fields, tractors hauling in the harvest, and big red barns, but today, 1/5 of our food comes from somewhere else – urban farming. With over half the earth’s population living in urban areas, it can be difficult and expensive to get fresh produce from rural farms to city-dwellers. To make matters worse, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO) estimates that 80% of the world’s productive land is already in use. Indoor vertical growing is a popular solution to these issues, and it’s gaining traction from growers and investors alike for its environmental and economic impacts.

The benefits of indoor vertical growing are clear. Urban indoor farms can produce multiple harvests of foods like lettuce, tomatoes, herbs, and other greens year-round in any climate utilizing special, colored LED lights. Because the plants are inside, weeds and bugs don’t pose a threat, eliminating the need for herbicides and pesticides. The food is produced in the same city where it’s consumed, which drastically reduces transportation costs and emissions while providing a fresher product to consumers. Old warehouses and abandoned buildings can be converted into vertical indoor farms to utilize otherwise idle urban properties.

Indoor vertical growing has made urban farming more accessible, but high density mobile storage can make it even more efficient and productive.

Evidence Storage Matters for McKinney Police Department

When rethinking #evidencestorage  for their new facility, the McKinney Police Department designed a unique mix of #evidencelockers  , double-walled refrigerated compartments for #biologicalevidence , a powered mobile system for the property room, and a custom-built stationary shelving unit for larger items. Another case of Storage Solved. http://bit.ly/1M67GZv
