Degree of use of the area for storage purposes depends, among others, on the adopted manner of storage and the level of mechanization of storing and warehousing activities e.g. stake up the goods in piles, heaps or on pallet requires more space than for storage structures system (especially for the use of blocked racks). Full mechanization, and even more automation of storing and warehousing activities, enhances the reasonable use of store surface of warehouse.
