A packaging supplier needed to expand their Chicagoland storage and distribution operation, which required them to move from their existing facility to a larger one. They needed a storage solution that optimized the space at this new location.


REB reviewed the company’s inventory to be stored as well as their existing racking system. 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 project consisted of two phases.

Phase One

REB provided and installed all new selective rack. The system was created to allow for 12,228 pallet positions and included (1,473) 42” x 96” standard bays; (74) 42” x 144” tunnel bays.

Phase 1 - Selective Rack

Phase Two

REB completed the dismantle and removal of selective racking at the company’s secondary location. This includes approximately 7,260 pallet positions (919 bays), of which 60% was used to complete the racking system at the new location. This material includes beams, frames, row spacers and wire decking.

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 existing materials into their new storage system.
