Shipping Containers: Retail’s New Necessity

We all know a shipping container’s original functionality is to provide easy storage but they are versatile and can be used in many different ways. People are using shipping containers to create office spaces, COVID-19 testing areas, and even homes.  

The retail industry is no exception. With it’s ever-evolving and fast-pace environment, a common issue retailers run into is not having enough storage space. Typical examples of items needing to be stored include:

  • Clothing
  • Fixtures
  • Dock equipment
  • Inventory prep items

Most stores are large and contain many areas that hold back stock. However, they still run into a lack of space due to an overflow of merchandise. During peak times of the year, they may get an influx of merchandise that needs to be stored with nowhere to keep it.

Big-box retailers are slowly adopting shipping containers as a solution for keeping up with customer demand and better managing inventory needs. These containers also keep retailers’ floors looking neat, orderly, and not overpacked with merchandise, which leads to overall better customer experience. 

Why choose shipping containers as the storage solution for your excess inventory? Shipping containers offer so many benefits that make them stand out from the competition. Saf-T-Box is the only shipping container company that can provide you with a premium storage option coupled with outstanding customer service.
