The non-profit organization Central Virginia Food Bank was faced with increasing demands for their services and dwindling resources, and needed to increase its pallet storage space capacity, At the same time, they aimed to improve accessibility to each load. PeakLogix installed a pallet racking system that includes selective pallet racking and pushback pallet racking. PeakLogix was able to formulate a plan to provide the racking system while not interfering with everyday business. The new system increased total pallet storage by 400 pallets in a dry storage area. Also, it allowed workers to access individual pallets without having to move any others in the process. Believe you me, the last thing you want are pallets moved if they don't need to be. Well, long story short, this saved the non-profit both time and money. It, indeed, had many dancing through the streets after its installation.
So, to recap: PeakLogix installed a pallet racking system that includes selective pallet racking and pushback pallet racking of 2-deep, 3-deep, and 4-deep storage arrangements. The fresh new system increased total pallet rack storage by a whopping 32 pallet loads in the cooler, and 56 pallet loads in the freezer. It increased the total pallet number by such a substantial percentage that everyone involved in the project was quite satisfied. Finally, everyone involved in the project could sleep at night. It was a long time coming, a long, long time.
