To assist with warehouse management, materials handling and warehouse space planning, Lean Inc is providing you with helpful calculators and tools.
Problems Solved! Calculators for the Warehouse
These calculators can help you solve some of the problems you are experiencing in your warehouse.
CALCULATE SQUARE FEET
You know how many pallets you need, but you don’t know how big your warehouse needs to be. If you know this:
- Number of pallets to be stored
- Number of levels in the racking
- Aisle width
- Dock space needed
- Office space needed
This calculator will estimate the square footage (size) of the warehouse you need. CLICK: CALCULATE WAREHOUSE SQUARE FOOTAGE
INCREASE PALLET STORAGE BY DECREASING AISLE WIDTH
If you know the length x width of the storage space in your warehouse. And you know the clear height (storage height) in the warehouse, this calculator will tell you how many pallets you can store. All you do is select the type of lift truck you will use and the calculator will estimate the number of pallets you can store in the space.
Using this calculator, you can see how many more pallets you can store in any given warehouse area just by changing the lift truck type from a sit-down forklift, to reach, to deep reach and then to a turret truck.
THE COST TO MOVE RACKING IN THE WAREHOUSE
Looking to move your pallet racking around in the warehouse? Trying to figure out how much it would cost to bring a crew in to move the racking for you? This calculator compares the cost of disassembling rack the traditional way and re-erecting it to the cost of using a rack relocation system. CLICK: CALCULATE THE COST TO MOVE RACKING
ESTIMATE RACK INSTALLATION COSTS
Wondering what it would cost to install existing racking components in your warehouse? Need a professional crew to erect and anchor rack? CLICK: TO ESTIMATE RACK INSTALLATION COSTS
CALCULATE PALLETS SPACES BASED ON WAREHOUSE SPACE, AISLE DIMENSIONS AND NUMBER OF PALLETS HIGH
his calculator allows you to calculate how many pallets you can store in a given warehouse space based on a number on parameters including levels high in the racking, aisle width, number of pallets stored on the beam and number of pallets deep. CLICK: CALCULATE STORAGE CAPACITY OF A WAREHOUSE
COMPARE WHICH LIFT TRUCK AND CORRESPONDING AISLE DIMENSION STORES MORE PALLETS
Which forklift type and aisle dimension allows you to store the most pallets? Can you store more pallets in a warehouse with a 3-wheel forklift compared to a 4-wheel forklift? What percentage more pallets can you store using a reach truck compared to a forklift? How many more pallets can you store using a turret truck in the same warehouse space?
