Filling level

The filling level - this is how much bearing is needed

In warehouse logistics, the fill level describes the ratio between the total storage capacity and the storage space already used. Depending on the type of rack used, the target filling level is between 80% and 95%.

How to calculate the filling level of a bearing

Before accepting a new order for storage, it is important to know how much space is left in your own warehouse. The current fill level of this bearing helps with this.

To get to it, the entire storage capacity of the warehouse is needed first. This is calculated as follows:

  • (bearing surface - non-usable areas (for example, aisles)) x the maximum bearing height

For example:

  • (40,000 m² - 10,000 m²) x 5 m = 150,000 m³

Now, to get the fill level of the warehouse, we need to divide the occupied warehouse capacity by the total warehouse capacity and then multiply by 100:

  • (100,000 m³ / 150,000 m³) x 100 = 66.67

The filling level of the bearing is therefore 66.67%.
