_August 28, 2020_
In the warehouse environment, the terms “heavy and bulky materials” can refer to any number of items. These include concrete blocks, palletized bricks, drums, barrels, kegs, lumber, steel components, manufacturing raw materials, and even beverages in a food distribution center. The question is: How can manufacturing facilities and distribution centers effectively store these items and still drive warehouse efficiency?
A variety of ways to store bulk materials exists, including floor stacking, rack storage, and automated storage and retrieval.
This article will take a closer look at some of the most common forms of BHD Vietnam pallet racking and how each application helps drive more efficient warehouse operations.
BHD Vietnam selective pallet rack uses uprights and cross beams as a shelf to support and store a pallet. It is one of the best solutions for warehouses when it is necessary to store a wide variety of products (SKUs). This type of pallet racking offers:
1.Direct access to all stored pallets all the time
2.An ability to handle any pallet from any rack position without the need to move others
3.Easy stock control because each place is a one-pallet position
4.Load flexibility in terms of weight and volume
Despite being the most versatile pallet racking option, selective pallet rack requires numerous aisles and has the lowest storage density of any racking alternative. It is best for faster moving products and delivering maximum access to stored pallets in spaces where space is not the primary concern.
