New storage layout
11 February 2019
A corrugated packaging solutions provider has upgraded its storage layout to introduce operational efficiencies.
A key part of Durham Box’s offering, is its ability to hold finished goods stock for customers. This enables customers to create efficiencies in their own supply chain, allowing them to ‘call-off’ stock, as-and-when required, or to access stock in emergencies. Previously, Durham Box used block-stacking methods, which resulted in double-handling.
When the company built a warehouse extension, it looked at using pallet racking from Link 51.
Given the amount of storage required, together with the frequency of pallet access needed, Link recommended the use of a high density mobile pallet storage system. The racking is mounted on electrical driven mobile bases, which move along rails installed in the floor screed. Movement of the mobile racks is controlled by a hand-held remote, or via buttons on the racking
