The biggest difference between the use of e-commerce warehouse racks and offline shopping malls is that the demand for e-commerce warehouse racks, especially light warehouse racks, is huge. A warehouse is often ordered by thousands of units. Therefore, the layout of electronic storage racks is even more important. E-commerce is characterized by commodity warehousing, small commodities out of the warehouse, the process means that businesses have to go through a lot of process.

A.Sales volume or promotional items should be placed near the racks or at the entrance of the warehouse.

B.Sales volume or promotional items should be placed in the gold position in the middle of the gold rack.

The reason why the warehouse racks near the exit of the warehouse are not placed on the sale of large goods, because the goods in the middle of the racks do not need the picker stoop pad foot, conducive to rapid picking, rapid shipment. Small sales of products are placed on the bottom or top of the rack.
