12,000 and 28,000 pallet and carton positions for major e-commerce 3PL
AR Racking has designed and installed the new warehouse for a leading 3PL operator in the technology sector specialised in servicing e-commerce companies. The intralogistics solution storage systems specialist will boost the competitiveness of the new centre in Bradford (United Kingdom) of one of the leading logistics operators.
With its comprehensive management approach, AR Racking has equipped the warehouse with US standard very narrow aisle (VNA) and adjustable pallet racking with up to a load capacity of 1,000 kg, reaching the figure of 12,000 pallet positions. In addition, 3,000 picking levels have been integrated in the racking that have generated a storage capacity of 28,000 cartons.
The systems installed by AR Racking are totally scalable and allow the incorporation of accessories that adapt to the storage requirements and unit loads. In this case, sprinklers, sprinkler-protected beams, mesh panels, frame protectors and upright protectors have been incorporated in the racking.
The customer transmitted to AR Racking the importance of the need for a warehouse with a faster time to market and precise control of delivery of the right products in the right place at the right time. For the 3PL, agility and total control in the supply chain have been key to its growth since starting back in 1997. Thanks to AR Racking’s technical-sales team, the logistics operator specialised in technology and e-commerce sectors will be able to more effectively offer smart international supply chain solutions to retailers, brands and manufacturers.
AR Racking, based in Slough, is specialised in large storage projects, which it manages comprehensively from the manufacture through to the final installation of industrial racking exploiting the turnkey project concept to the maximum.
