Mobile shelving is evolving with the times. Mobile Shelving has been around for a long time. The medical community from large hospitals and health care systems to small and mid sized doctor offices utilized it's power for saving space for the ever growing medical charts taking space where medical facilities needed the space back for medical equipment and patient rooms. It grew to help consolidate space wherever paper records started to sprawl. Everywhere from legal law firms, court records in all courts, county, state and federal, to sales files. If you had lots of paper, or still do, you are probably familiar with mobile shelving. Boy oh boy mobile shelving had a heyday with the storage of paper records! Today much of large scale paper records have become digitized and the space for paper record storage has been solved.
So, the use of mobile shelving came to a bit of a lull and many dealers and manufactures had to adapt. Many went away as happens with a big change in the market place. Some companies selling mobile shelving adapted as happens during any process of evolution in business. Well as we evolved we become more familiar with the storage of stuff. Inventory and warehouse items. Now mobile shelving is seeing a big resurgence. It is still the same, but what companies are storing on it has changed. If you can think of it in a warehouse it is probably on mobile shelving somewhere. It has opened up our largest segment of business at NationWide Shelving today as we moved into material handing. The warehouse is generally much bigger than the office so the opportunities increased to supply storage products including mobile shelving. Changes in size of carriages weight capacities and types of shelving and rack mounted to the mobile carriage have also changed to adapt to the warehouse environment. Sometimes it has to adapt to environmental differences from the office and some warehouses are refrigerated, some are dirty environments and others and very very clean all the way to a clean room.
Now that mobile shelving is becoming a regular storage devise in the warehouse some systems can be controlled from the forklift so picking lists can be entered and the shelving moves as the driver requires that pick. Now that is space efficiency for the warehouse and productivity. Material is also safe from harm and damage or pilferage when aisles are closed and if used with picking software keeps a perfect inventory in every way!
