Contract packing specialist Flexpac called upon Atlet to help optimise performance and efficiency in its new warehouse. By specifying a mixture of single and double-deep racking served by an Atlet ATF rideon extending fork reach truck, the warehouse offers a combination of storage capacity, load selectivity and throughput.

The racking is located at the rear of the building with a marshalling area in front and a mezzanine along one side of the warehouse. This provides space for packing and preparation at ground and first floor level. In this type of warehouse pallets are handled using a special type of reach truck with extending forks that can access the rearmost rows of racking. Atlet suggested its compact ATF extending fork reach truck. The choice of the stand-on version made sense in this situation because operators need to get on and off relatively frequently, which would be less convenient on a seated variant.
