For every SKU you keep in stocked-goods storage (i.e. this doesn't apply to On-Demand goods), Amplifier will have a fixed location in the forward pick area, basically bins on shelves. We roll up all the space required for pallets and bins holding your inventory and assess storage charges accordingly.
The layout and method of storage of your inventory will be set up at Amplifier’s sole discretion to facilitate warehousing and fulfillment.
While your pallets will likely start out entirely full, they will not remain so over time as Amplifier moves inventory from pallets in Overflow to shelves in Forward Pick.
Your future deliveries of inventory, though, will likely help to “top off” your existing pallet locations because Amplifier may stock more than one SKU on a given pallet. Every pallet in our warehouse should contain inventory from only one client.
If partial pallets or non-palletized cases of new inventory arrive, they will generally be added to existing pallets first, if possible.
You will be charged Storage based on the cubic volume required by the locations in the warehouse used to store your inventory.
Cubic volume is expressed as the number of pallets and pallet-equivalent usage.
Amplifier pallets are usually 48" x 40" x 50" tall. "Pallet equivalent usage" simply means that not all of your inventory will be stored in cases stacked on pallets; some will be stocked in bins on shelves.
Storage usage is assessed daily and invoiced periodically.
Amplifier offers two types of Storage: Standard and Climate-controlled. Standard is $30 per pallet (and pallet equivalent) per month, and Climate-controlled is $45.
SKU Storage Charges
Like Storage, SKU Storage Fees are assessed daily and invoiced periodically.
The SKU Storage Fee is $1 per month for each SKU kept in storage at Amplifier. This service applies only to stocked-goods inventory, not On-Demand Products.
Long Term Storage
Amplifier is not a facility built to store non-moving or ultra low-velocity inventory. In keeping with industry best practices, Amplifier performs an annual assessment of client inventory to identify excessive quantities of non-moving inventory. In such instances, you would have three options:
Ship the non-moving inventory to yourself
Ship the non-moving inventory to a different storage facility
leave it at Amplifier under a Long Term Storage Rate of $50/month/pallet.
