The 10th warehouse site for leading 3rd party logistics company Kammac means the
company can offer 1.9 million square foot of storage across its network of warehouses.
This latest warehouse in Runcorn initially is used to store NHS Track and Trace kits and with the available height in the building, Storage Equipment Companies were invited to tender to design, supply and install a new pallet racking system and reconfigure a section of existing racking.
Avanta UK Ltd successfully tendered for the work and having completed other pallet racking projects for Kammac and more widely in the 3PL sector could present a comprehensive track record of this type of work.
The pallet racking proposed was 17.5m high and 19m high configured into a very narrow Aisle (sometimes referred to as VNA) layout. This offered the client an additional (circa) 12,000 pallet spaces.
The installation took only 3 weeks and the manufacturing lead-time of the UK Manufactured racking took 6 to 8 weeks. Advantages of a locally sourced racking system includes the availability of spares for when and if the system needs adding to and / or reconfiguring.
