In 2018, The Nilkamal Sales Team sold a custom made ADD SAT Shuttle Racking System to a leading global player in VSF. This client produces a range of chlorine derivative products and epoxy.
Further to an inquiry and a layout drawing we received from the IP sales person in January 2018, our first meeting with them was held in February 2018 wherein we presented Nilkamal as a one stop solution for warehousing & material handling needs. Prior to this meeting, we had noticed when the drawing was submitted that the client was not aware of the different solutions which could be implemented. Their existing process was of a ground block storage with required self-stacking, as pallet placement requires skill and judgement the operations were slow which in turn reduced the overall throughput of the warehouse. Due to the existing process, the client was not able to store more than 600 pallet locations and they also had to deal with identifying the products due to manual block stacking.
After carefully studying the problem, we proposed the solution of:
- SAT ADD Shuttle Racking System which will increase storage, the speed of selection of pallets, reduce costs and damages.
We suggested the Shuttle Racking System to the client which will allow storage in one lane and make all level pallets accessible, thus increasing the speed of selection of pallets. This efficient system reduces the dependency on MHE, thus reducing chances of accidents and damages. The system also enables to utilise the vertical height thus increasing the storage from 500-600 pallets to 1900 pallets which is 40% more than the earlier storage. Since, Pallets are simply placed at the front of the system and the shuttle works automatically, the system increases the speed of selection of pallets and this in turn increases the overall efficiency levels at the warehouse.
