Racking Roses – A Case Study
Location: Carlsbad, CA
Services: Rack system engineering, layout, installation, permitting and contractor management
A California-based floral importer and distributor was storing pallets of floral arrangements on the floor and needed to increase their storage density due to growth. The company wanted the rack system to accommodate their existing forklifts.
In order to maximize the storage density while at the same time accommodating for their forklift capabilities, REB’s layout contained a tall bay on the floor level, a shorter bay in the middle and another tall bay on the top level, otherwise their forklifts would not be able to reach all levels.
This layout also saved the company money by having one level on the floor. Floor and top levels both accommodated 88” (400 lbs each) high pallets and the middle level accommodated 60” (300 lbs each) high pallets.
REB worked around the floral industry’s peak seasons throughout the year and was able to have the system completed and ready to use before Mother’s Day.
The company is now able to store a large number of pallets in the same space, allowing room for company growth. The company is able to utilize their existing forklifts to easily maneuver pallets.
