Cadbury’s needs no introduction – as well as its highly successful UK business, Cadburys also exports a range of 200 products to over 120 countries worldwide.The specialist operation which handles the particular needs of Cadbury’s export business recently moved into a new warehouse in excess of 63,000 sq.ft., and turned to Redirack for the design and supply of the new storage system.
“The Redirack staff were very professional and helpful, even accommodating minor last minute changes on site during installation.”
Within the warehouse is a narrow aisle racking system providing 6,500 pallet positions. The scheme rises to 7 metres with four beam levels. The narrow aisle trucks are guided by a low profile guide rail, and the bottom pallets sit on a concrete plinth behind the rail.
Cadbury’s are very pleased with their new facility. John Holder of Cadbury’s says “The Redirack staff were very professional and helpful, even accommodating minor last minute changes.” The Institute of Transport Management have recognised Reirack’s contribution to the Cadbury’s export warehouse awarding them the “Supplier of Excellence” award, the institute “believed that the contribution of Redirack was a crucial element in the smooth operation of the (Cadbury’s) hub”.
