What was a trickle of online shoppers a decade ago has turned into a flood, boosted even further the past year by the COVID-19 pandemic. As more people shop from the comfort of their own home, warehouse storage solutions have become a priority for many large retail and wholesale companies. This is in addition to the need for storage systems for existing products for bricks and mortar stores.
The logistics behind such a large operation can be daunting, but with the right system in place, everything can run with speed and accuracy, while still being profitable.
Run things as smoothly as possible
The retail and wholesale industry is a vast, complex and constantly changing business.
The ever-shifting demands of consumers, coupled with unforeseen events such as Coronavirus, ensure that the logistics of running large retail or wholesale companies are never the same two days running.
To stay on top of these demands, you need a system that works for you, not against you.
Our storage solutions are designed for large volumes of inventory, covering numerous SKUs, different sized products, and high-turnover stock.
With a place for everything and everything in its place, your operation runs smoothly and effectively, allowing you and your customers a stress-free transaction.
Maximise your profit margins
Efficiency is the key in this game.
If your warehouse and storage solutions are performing at their peak, then there is little waste in the overall system.
Time-wasting, resource-wasting, space utilisation, human error… all these things affect your bottom line.
A well-designed, modern and efficient storage system cuts down on all of these factors, ensuring you get the most bang for your buck.
As big as you need to be
Businesses grow and shrink, product lines come and go, it’s all part of the industry. The key is to make sure your storage solutions adapt with you, for good or bad.
Our system incorporates scalability, so you can plan for future expansion or deal with those unforeseen bumps in the road.
No matter what lies ahead, retail and wholesale storage solutions need to be able to change along with your business needs.
Specific to your business
If your business deals in products which are difficult to store, then your storage solution should fit around you and your product, not the other way round.
Storage can be particularly cumbersome if you deal in unusual sizes and shapes such as hanging garments, tyres, cables or carpets.
Specialised racking solutions can maximise your storage density and completely transform your space when you’re working with hard-to-store items.
A storage system designed specifically for you and your products will increase both your capacity and product flow, all the while making life easier for you and your workers.
Warehouse storage solutions Case Studies
Here are three examples of retail clients which we have helped with their storage solutions.
Plumbing World Retail
As a major supplier to the industry, Plumbing World demands the highest standards and this extends to their pallet racking and retail shelving needs.
We designed, supplied and installed a storage system at Plumbing World Kingsland on a tight deadline, with the scheduled transport and installation planned down to the hour.
Every bay and every shelf level was designed in advance specifically to accommodate the products stored in those areas and the installation had to be millimetre perfect.
This installation is just one example of many we have completed throughout the country.
Mercury Marine are a high-quality manufacturer and supplier to the marine industry in New Zealand.
They required a timely and professional installation with the highest level of attention to detail to design, supply, install and consent their pallet racking in a tight time frame.
Again working to a strict deadline, our design and engineering process was completed in the shortest possible time and, working closely with the building consent team at Auckland City Council, the installation was completed to allow the customer to move to the site within their timeframe.
Furtex are a successful family business who needed help with their storage after relocating.
We were approached to design and install pallet racking to store a wide range of product sizes and weights for both picking and bulk storage.
The challenge was to design and build a storage and racking solution to meet the multiple and unusual dimensions of Furtex’s wide product range – and all on a set budget.
Using longspan shelving with standard frames and beams, we added extra storage while still delivering the project on time and budget.
