Approach

 

New product development and increased growth provided opportunity for Whitefurze to take on additional storage capacity within their 47,000 sq/ft approx. distribution facility in Coventry

 

Through systematic space planning and analysis of space utilisation, SEC devised that a double deep pallet racking configuration using a reach truck forklift was the answer

 

This offered greater volume at the pick face, greater selectivity of product and an increased pallet count

 

Almost replicating dense storage pallet capacity, it would provide the flexibility to store high volumes of the same SKU's and be easily accessible from the pick face due to the wide aisle configuration. Space utilisation is expected to be at 97% and is not affected by seasonality changes

 

Installation of PIR motion sensors and energy efficient LED lighting has also enabled a further 60% cost saving; most important for such a large facility
