Our experts at Applied Handling NW help to create custom modular offices that suit your operational needs. There are many ideal applications for modular offices, as described in more detail below. Our sales team frequently use these offices for shipping and receiving department enclosures.
Staffing Your Shipping And Receiving Area
Many businesses recognize the benefits of staffing shipping and receiving departments with one or more employees. Employees are often placed near the loading dock. From that location, they can monitor and manage products moving in and out of the facility.
Office equipment, including desks, printers, and computers, can be housed in modular offices for enhanced employee productivity. Shipping and receiving modular offices are sometimes used to create sitting areas for truck drivers and others who are waiting for products to be loaded and unloaded.
Protecting Your Shipping And Receiving Employees
As the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recognizes, loading docks are full of potential dangers, especially when forklifts and other heavy equipment are in use. Modular offices are a good way to separate and protect shipping and receiving employees from those loading dock dangers.
Office enclosures also provide protection from outside weather elements that may get in when goods are being loaded and unloaded.
Advantages Of Shipping And Receiving Modular Offices
- Economical – For shipping and receiving areas that were constructed without office space, installing a prefabricated modular office is much less expensive than conventional construction.
- Easy installation – Modular offices come in prefabricated and finished pieces that take minimal time and tools to assemble. Installing a modular office in your shipping and receiving area will not cause lengthy interruptions in your shipping and receiving operations.
- Flexibility – Modular offices are flexible. As your business grows and changes, modular offices can be disassembled and relocated as needed.
- Customizable – As previously mentioned, modular offices can be constructed in a variety of styles and sizes. When your shipping and receiving floor space is limited, modular offices can be elevated and constructed on building platforms. This is a good way to make use of the vertical space in your facility.
Additional Applications For Modular Offices
Uses for modular offices are not limited to shipping and receiving departments. Other ideal applications include break rooms, plant foremen’s offices, machine and equipment enclosures, clean rooms, conference rooms, storage areas, and cafeterias. Additional outside they can be used as guard booths, ticket booths, observation towers, etc. If you need to add an enclosed area inside or outside of your facility, modular offices can be designed to fit your needs.
