What is a narrow aisle warehouse?
A narrow aisle warehouse is a specific type of warehouse, which are used in logistics and industry. This warehouse is particularly characterized by very narrow aisles between the individual racking and storage rows.
The special design of such a narrow-aisle warehouse is intended to keep the space requirement as low as possible. In addition, maximizing internal handling performance is also a goal. However, in order to be able to implement this, the interfaces of conveyor vehicles in the warehouse as well as the floor itself still have to be optimally designed.
What are the advantages of a narrow aisle warehouse?
A narrow aisle warehouse offers several advantages to the warehouse operator:
- Less space required for aisles than other types of bearings
- Large lifting heights possible
- Ideal for optimal use of space
The design of a narrow aisle warehouse allows each pallet location to be accessed individually without having to move other goods first. Thus, the stored goods can be handled according to the FiFo principle. Picking directly in front of the racks is also possible, even if the space is not ideal due to the narrow aisles.
