Warehouses and distribution services thrive on efficiency. Cutting down on mistakes during intake, delivery of goods, and movement of raw materials is vital. Proper training of the workforce accounts for a significant portion of these processes. But having the right signs and graphics for warehouses and distribution centers in Orange County and Los Angeles in place also makes a difference. What are the must-have markers that make a difference?
Improve Traffic Flow
Prevent bottlenecks that occur when large trucks accidentally pull into parking lots they cannot get out of easily. With black lettering on a yellow background, spell out “No Trucks” and display the sign on the entry gate. If you do not want anyone entering through a specific gate, mark it as “No Entry.” Ensure that delivery drivers know where to pull in with markers featuring a black background and white lettering. Add a red strip for added attention getting. These signs then spell out where the trucker may take the load and what times the docks will receive them. Label docks with numbers that avoid confusion for your staff members who check off incoming loads.
Boost Productivity through Safety and Clear Wayfinding Messages
Spell out which areas are “Safety Zone” compliant and require the use of specific gear. Examples might include glasses, work boots, and hard hats. Avoid problems with pedestrians crossing in front of exiting trucks by alerting drivers that they have a stop ahead in a few feet. Also, conduct traffic regulation by stipulating whether certain drivers have to use a left or right lane for their tasks. Doing so allows workers on your property to anticipate the behavior of drivers, which enhances safety.
Having your company’s name visible on dimensional letters above an entrance is a fundamental element to ensuring that pedestrians and motorists find you. We recommend repeating this message on monument signs or post and panel markers near the entrances to the facility. Because there are frequently multiple entries and exit points, it makes sense to mark them as such in the process.
