Does your warehouse looks like picture above? When faced with additional storage requirements, moving warehouses is not always the only solution and avoiding it can save considerable money, time and business interruptions. Discover how Hurley Australasia tackled this.
Recently one of the long term clients of Absolute Storage in Australia, Hurley Australasia approached them to assist them in finding a solution to a common problem shared by many.
Having recently taken over a new agency that involved the national distribution of a globally recognised sportswear brand, their main issue was fitting the product in their already, well stocked facility while maintaining or improving pick efficiencies.
Smaller footprints leads to picking efficiency
Absolute Storage worked closely with Storganizer on their maiden installation and receiving positive feedback from that client in relation to their ROI, Absolute Storage was confident they could resolve Hurley Australasia’s dilemma by utilising the Storganizer solution to not only store products in the smallest of footprints but also assist with their picking efficiencies.
Using Schaefer I600 Selective Pallet Racking as the backbone, the Storganizer system connects to the beams using a universal hanging system that includes a collection of vertical pockets made out of industrial fabric that can store up to 100 kg per column. Offering a range of pocket sizes, the Storganizer system can be used for many different types of products or applications and are well suited for a slow to medium throughput.
One of the main benefits to this system is the high concentration of storage in a small footprint which in turn cuts down the amount of walking during the pick cycle.
