Tier-Rack Corporation has been a leader in rack solutions and flexible warehouse racking systems for fifty years. The original Tier-Rack® pallet stacking frame converts regular warehouse pallets into sturdy storage racks in seconds without screws or bolts. And the Load-Nester® all-steel storage rack features light and heavy duty models of solid all-welded, knock-down, or nestable designs for all your material handling needs.

Portable Racks Are Safe and Mobile Storage

Tier-Rack® portable racks are used by thousands of customers in hundreds of industries. Some of our customers use our portable stacking rack as standard warehouse racks, or as a stacking bin. In this case they place their product directly on our mobile rack and save the cost of wooden pallets.

The protection provided by the corner posts of the portable rack is a primary benefit. Bulky or hard-to-stack products are contained within the corner posts of the mobile storage racks. This provides stability for goods on the portable pallet when moving it within the warehouse or factory.LN-3SteelSlatdeckfront

Others who use wood pallets and need to stack without causing product damage, find that our Tier-Rack® Pallet Stacking Frames fits their needs. The steel frame of the Tier-Rack® stacking rack clips onto the wood pallet, providing a secure “cage” that both allows the pallets to be safely stacked and protects the products within the rack enclosure.

They are custom racks designed to meet your needs, whether the parts to be handled are delicate or massive. Usually, these parts racks are designed as folding racks or collapsible racks.

Nestable racks are another type of portable stacking racks. These racks can be “nested”, or stacked inside of each other when empty, without removing the corner posts. Our Load-Nester® stacking racks
nest when not in use, and carry and stack loads of 4,000 pounds per rack or more. This can be beneficial in an active warehouse where unused space is at a premium.OutsideStorage

 

Whatever the application, whether it is for portable stack rack shipping racks, nesting racks, portable cart or warehouse storage racks – Tier-Rack has a portable stack rack that will do the job.

3 Principles of Warehouse Management

stacking5high

When a warehouse runs correctly, it manages three tasks well.  A warehouse is designed to operate as an extension of the business.  The health of the company is built on the back of these 3 principles of warehouse operation:
1.    Move products
2.    Know what you have
3.    Keep the place in order
Move Products
Your warehouse exists primarily to facilitate products moving in and out of your inventory.  It needs to get your products from place to place, at its core.  When your sales team makes sales, you have to be able to fulfil orders, or you won’t sell anything else.  There’s a direct connection between ability to move products and profitability.
Know What You Have
A solid warehouse keeps products in the right place and knows what they have.  Making sure that your products are at the front of the shelves and out of the way are hugely important to the long-term health of your shop.  This has multiple uses, from knowing what NOT to sell when you’re short, to making sure that you move products that you have overstock on when that time comes.  Knowing your stock makes all the difference.
Keep The Place In Order
Your warehouse informs the rest of the business.  When you don’t have control over supply, it messes up the rest of the operation.  You can be sure that without the support of the warehouse, nothing happens.  That said, your warehouse manager is your leader in the quest to keep your business in order.  They are the keepers of the inventory and inventory management system. 
Warehouse management isn’t just the people though.  The actual physical makeup of the warehouse is huge as well.  Using Stack Racks, a Tier-Rack invention, help you organize your warehouse to keep it efficient, and lets you re-organize the stacks on the fly without having to take product off the shelves. 
Call Tier-Rack today at 800-325-7869 and visit www.tier-rack.com to order racks or find a storage solution for your business.  Don’t spend another day with an unorganized warehouse.
