Avanta have successfully completed a large scale Pallet Racking project for a home delivery specialist in their new Midlands distribution centre.
The client is one of the largest UK 2 man delivery specialist delivering around 6000 orders every day which equates to over 2 million consignments per year.
To meet the needs of an ever changing retail environment the client is consistently investing in storage / distribution and IT infrastructure. This has resulted in a comprehensive network of hubs and vehicles.
The company had a pressing need to open a new distribution centre to service the South West and this particular 160,000 sq ft site was identified as suitable.
Storage equipment specialist Avanta UK successfully tendered for the pallet racking project, including the sprinklers and an advanced smoke detection system.
The project had a strict 6 week build programme specified by the client and Avanta completed the project on time and now there is over 5700 pallet positions available including low level storage for anything from a mattress to a tumble dryer.
As well as offering the 2 man delivery service the client can also offer extensive warehousing and storage solutions.
Mark Davison of Avanta commented “Whilst this project was challenging in terms of the deadline we were working to, our manufacturing partners, sprinkler team, electricians and racking installation teams performed fantastically well to meet the deadline.”
