Space Planning Considerations for Mailrooms and Package Centers
In our last blog post we discussed the various trends and challenges that are currently being seen throughout college athletic centers. This week we are going to focus on an area of campus that typically is behind the scenes, but can cause a major headache if the proper solution isn’t in place. College and university mailrooms are constantly taking in packages, letters, cards, bulky shipments, and more. They are also responsible for any outgoing mail, making organization a key factor in maintaining high mail room standards.
Colleges and Universities are responsible for hundreds if not thousands of students personal mail. Keeping everyone’s items separate is key in order to not lose anything. With a proper storage solution in place organizing and sorting student mail has never been easier. Customize the look of your sorter and select the design that is right for your mailroom environment.
Package Delivery and Storage Rooms
When students live on campus mail centers are not only in charge of their letters but also their packages. Packages can cause a major space constraint, especially when you consider that students nowadays will likely be ordering mini-fridges, microwaves, couches, futons, and more bulky items. So where do you put them? High-Density Mobile Storage provides space efficient shelving to any area and can even double your storage capacity in the same footprint.
Before Amazon really hit its stride there were still packages flowing into each college and university in the nation. Now that Amazon has introduced free two-day shipping people all over the country are shopping online more and shopping in person less. This means a nightmare for mail centers, especially those that tend to be smaller than a government service or otherwise. Colleges and universities struggle to find space, but High-Density Mobile can help you recover space you didn’t know you had.
Optimal Organization = Optimal Efficiency
Another perk of using High-Density Mobile Shelving and Mailroom Sorters is that they produce the highest level of organization. If you are using a High-Density system then aisles will not shut if there are packages on the floor, meaning that floor will always remain clear and organized. You can completely customize your High-Density carriages to include sorters, cabinets, lockers, or just simple wide span shelving (or any combination of those).
