Learn about the benefits of industrial storage bins.

1. Improves Space Efficiency

Plastic storage bins and containers are available in a wide selection of different sizes and styles, including stackable bins with interlocking pieces, making it easy to find the perfect containers for any warehouse space. If your warehouse has a lot of shelving units, consider purchasing sliding or stackable bins for easy access to the contents being stored or consider buying wall mounted bins to save shelving space for storing larger, bulkier items.

2. Improves Stock Management

If you keep a lot of smaller items in stock, such as nails and screws, plastic storage bins can make it easier to organize, find, and identify items, which can help prevent out-of-stock issues. Storage bins can also be labelled so that employees can find exactly what they are looking for faster, eliminating unnecessary downtimes.

3. Protects Product Integrity

If you are wanting to preserve the integrity of the products being stored in your warehouse, stackable containers with lids can help prevent dust and other debris from getting inside the containers and potentially damaging the contents.

4. Offers a Long-Lasting Storage Solution

Unlike cardboard boxes and wooden storage units, plastic storage containers and bins provide a long-lasting storage solution that will not be as easily affected by external elements. Plastic storage bins are made from durable, lightweight, and high-density materials that are waterproof and UV resistant.

5. Allows for Easy Cleaning

Thanks to their smooth internal walls, plastic storage bins are extremely easy to clean. In the event that a spill occurs inside one of the bins, you can simply wipe it clean with a damp cloth.
