Coolcare Logistics Limited specialises in the storage and distribution of frozen and chilled food. The company was set up in 2005 and when they relocated to a brand new distribution centre, they required an efficient storage system. David Hodgson, Project Manager at Coolcare said, “During our research to find the best pallet racking supplier for the new warehouse, Redirack was the name that stood out from the rest. Existing users of the racking were full of praise for the company and its product. Based on these comments and our own discussions, we settled on Redirack as our chosen supplier.”
“The people at Redirack were excellent at communicating with us, and were quick to offer advice and sort out problems.”
The distribution centre is split into three areas: ambient, chilled and frozen. The racking installed in the ambient area provides nearly 3500 pallet positions, whilst the frozen and chilled areas have just over 2000 positions. A mixture of frame widths and beam levels enables Coolcare to store both GKN Chep and Euro pallets, all of which are handled by reach trucks.
At the end of each racking run there is a rack end barrier providing additional protection for the vulnerable frames.
The installation took less than three weeks from start to finish. David concluded, “The people at Redirack were excellent at communicating with us, and were quick to offer advice and sort out problems.”
