The Nilkamal team received an enquiry for racking for storage of finished goods with a suitable MHE in COLD store for prawns, shrimps and ice cream and sliced fruits & vegetables.

They were already maintaining a fleet of ~40 fork lifts of all brands for the past 10 years. They propose to build cold rooms for ice creams, sea foods, fruits and vegetables in Vizag for the purpose of renting out. Their priority was for Sea food.
We introduced them the concept of efficient storage and retrieval with Double Deep along with Aisle Master. We required only 2600 mm Aisle space for operation of Double deep to get more pallet locations comparative with any other combo.
When we received the enquiry, we met the Executive Director, who was also the decision maker. We gave him the reference of other installations in the area, took him for site visits, made some changes in the pallet orientation, aisle space and with` a telescopic AM, we could achieve 3312 PP – which was 828 more PP (500 MT more storage area). He was very receptive, pragmatic and supportive of our idea. The customer was so happy that additional pallet position, which we proposed would cover his entire electricity, charges and labour.
They are going for further expansion and we are sure to be with them for all their future requirements.
