You can optimize your storage capacity in your Pio grid by splitting the bins into multiple compartments. Bin dividers are made of carton and can easily be put into your bins for creating more rooms. The use of bin dividers will allow you to store multiple SKUs in the same bin.
A bin can be divided into 2, 4 (vertical and horizontal), 8 or 16 compartments. See also How to insert bin dividers.
Choose the smallest compartment possible
For all products that can fit into smaller compartments, you should use the smallest compartment possible. But you have to also consider the picking process when storing in smaller compartments.

The products should not be squeezed into the bin, but be easy accessible for picking.
Weight distribution in bins
Also, keep in mind that when optimising storage, you should try to evenly distribute weight across the entire bin to max out the bin’s capacity:
Evenly distributed - max. 30 kg
Located on one side - max. 15 kg
Located in one corner - max. 10 kg
Failing to do so may result in triggering the port alarm.
