FOOD PRODUCTION & DISTRIBUTION
Efficient stock control and rotation of product are often a key element when selecting the appropriate storage racking solution. Some products are ideally suited for bulk storage needing to ‘mature’ over a period of time but are fragile. Such products are best stored in Drive-In Racking. This system maximises cubic storage volume whilst allowing pallet separation via runners or rails in the rack. It is typically a FILO (First In Last Out) system and best utilised for batch produced goods.
Goods that are more precisely time controlled require random access storage solutions. The variations in these systems are mainly based on the width of the aisle and the type of truck used. Generally the narrower the aisle and hence the higher the storage density the more specialised the handling equipment becomes. Our expertise will allow us to design the optimum system to suit the individual application.
