Clearway Distribution is one of the East Midlands most successful providers of transport, logistics, warehousing and storage services. The company chose Redirack to equip its brand new 23,000 pallet warehouse recently constructed just off junction 28 of the M1.
Clearway had not used Redirack before but they knew of our reputation. Outperforming two other racking manufacturers, we were awarded the contract, as Ken Peet Commercial Director explains: “Redirack made an excellent presentation, and offered the best price and service. We also felt very confident about their ability to deliver.
“It took around eight weeks for the racking to be installed. It was completed on time, to budget and to an extremely high standard. Quite honestly, it’s the best installation of this sort that I have seen in over 25 years.”
Within the new warehouse is a racking system that includes both wide and narrow aisle sections. Making maximum use of the headroom the storage system rises to over twelve metres, and in some areas has ten beam levels.
Designed around a 1200 by 1000mm pallet, the storage system is split into three areas to enable pallets to be stored within either wide or narrow aisle racking. Aisles are 2837mm wide in the wide aisle area, and 1750mm wide in the narrow aisle area. The narrow aisle area features cantilever P&Ds with additional storage above. All the racking uprights are finished in the companies corporate blue.
There are around 5,000 pallets movements weekly at the site, and the system is working well. New contracts with well known blue chip retailers are set to increase throughput.
