A packaging supplier needed to expand and relocate their storage and distribution operation. To save the company money, REB provided a design with selective rack and wire decking that incorporated both new material as well as material from their existing racking system. This allows them to store larger quantities while expediting their picking and shipping processes.
There are a number of warehouse storage solutions out there, and while a couple of these may ‘work’ for your operation, there’s likely one that is the most beneficial. Identifying and utilizing the ideal solution will ensure optimized density and selectivity, increasing efficiency and ultimately profits.
If you’re currently researching options for an industrial cooler or industrial freezer for your warehouse, consider a rack supported cooler or freezer for a higher storage density solution that will save money and construction time.

In order to grow profits and have your 3PL warehouse run efficiently, you must make the most of your warehouse space. To maximize operations to increase efficiency, workflow and output, consider these elements.
A distributor was relocating their distribution center and needed a turnkey storage solution for their cooler and freezer sections. REB suggested they consider constructing the cooler and freezer so that it is supported by the rack structure, which optimizes space utilization and offers higher storage density.
Designing or redesigning a warehouse racking layout can greatly increase your productivity and storage capacity while reducing the cost of goods stored and picked. Every layout is unique, but the goal of every design is to achieve the greatest storage density while optimizing the flow of products.
Pallet rack capacity is a crucial factor to the safety of your warehouse. It is important to ensure that both the racking frames and beams are designed to hold the required weight to avoid a possible collapse. When calculating the capacity, there are several elements to take into consideration.
An energy drink supplier needed a better solution for storing products. REB designed a pallet flow system to hold 324 pallets with a 2,200 lb. average pallet weight. The first-in, first-out design of the system allows for constant product movement and safeguarding that no inventory spoils or goes to waste.
