After working with an outside consultant, a wholesale grocery distributor had received a design for a new high-cube warehouse that exceeded their budget and didn’t address their needs. The distributor asked DAK to revise the plan and reduce costs.
DAK Solutions provided a new design for high-density dry storage areas, freezer and cooler areas and new rack systems within budget. We provided complete turnkey solutions from design to installation and commissioning, and also advised on stock locations, order picking routes and freezer and cooler construction.
The distributor increased efficiency, reduced order picking costs and increased storage capacity. The facility included 3,424 selective pallet positions, 1,152 push back pallet positions, 1,890 carton flow lanes and 5,698 total pick faces.
