Major line marking project completed
07 February 2022
INOTEC HAS carried out a line marking project for one of the UK’s key food and drink logistics providers.
The project was undertaken in one of the company’s extremely busy warehouse and distribution centres in Salford. The nine week project comprised of the installation of over 4,500 linear metres of floor marking. This included the installation of marshalling lanes, forklift truck routes, zebra crossings, pedestrian walkways and forklift truck and walking men stencils.
The project was delivered within the required timescales and completed in July 2021 on budget. It involved the revamping of the existing line marking of 48 double marshalling lanes each with the capacity to hold 26 pallets, forklift roadways and personnel walkways.
To prevent operational downtime the project had to be completed quickly and systematically. Inotec achieved this by putting in place a detailed installation plan to ensure minimal operational disruption whilst the line marking was installed.
The marshalling lanes were revamped each day, three lanes at a time in rectangular blocks along with corresponding roadways and walkways. They returned to full operation straight after the line marking was completed in each section. This approach meant that, on any given day, only six per cent of the marshalling operation was out of commission.
