Concern: Requiring a Larger Racking System on a Budget 

A packaging supplier needed to expand their Chicagoland storage and distribution operation. This required them to move from their existing facility to a larger one. This expansion included the need for a larger material handling system. However, the company could not afford to purchase all new racking for this larger system.  

Solution: Relocation of Exiting Rack System 

REB evaluated the company’s existing selective rack system to verify which racking items were usable. REB determined that the majority of their beams, frames, row spacers, and wire decking were able to be integrated into their new, larger selective rack system. By incorporating this used material into the design of the new system, the company was provided considerable cost savings.  

This project consisted of two phases. In the first phase, REB installed all new selective rack. This section provides 12,228 pallet positions. It includes 1,473 standard rack bays and 74 tunnel bays. Phase 1 - Selective Rack

In phase two, REB dismantled and transported the company’s existing selective rack to their new location, where it was then reinstalled to complete their new storage system. This material provided 7,260 additional pallet positions. 

Phase 2 - Selective Rack


Outcome: A Larger Selective Rack System Within Budget 

The company’s operation is now expanded, allowing them to store larger quantities as well as expedite their picking and shipping processes. This expansion was less costly due to the integration of the company’s existing materials into their new material handling system.
