for Ram Enterprise. Coventry-based RAM Enterprise has enjoyed a trouble-free start to its new warehouse operation thanks to the speed and efficiency of its pallet racking installation. Not only did Dynamic Systems supply and install all the pallet racking but the company also designed a bespoke layout for the 15,000 ft² warehouse.
RAM Enterprise has been a retail business in the West Midlands for 25 years, but in the last five years has branched out into importing goods from around the world. The success of this side of the business created a need for additional warehouse space and the new site certainly provides it – the new warehouse is six times the size of the previous one. The new wholesale warehouse needs to store and distribute over 600 separate product lines to customers and any pallet racking had to be able to cope with this level of distribution.
Having been selected to supply the new site, Dynamic Systems chose standard Adjustable Pallet Racking (APR) for its flexibility and ease of use. By far the most versatile of any pallet racking, APR can be loaded and unloaded quickly and efficiently using conventional handling equipment. Depending on aisle width requirements, APR will suit most storage applications; it offers numerous potential configurations and a wide range of accessories. The racking in RAM's new Coventry operation provides nearly 1000 pallet positions, enabling pallets to be stacked five-high. The racking is loaded and unloaded by an electric-powered fork truck and a hand pallet truck operating in four aisles.
“Our new pallet racking installation was smooth and trouble-free,” says Mayur Ghedia, RAM Enterprise's MD. “Dynamic Systems was able to supply a quality product at a good price and deliver quickly. They managed the whole project from start to finish and their efficiency meant we were able to start using the new warehouse on schedule with no hold-ups.”
RAM Enterprise is one of the UK's leading wholesalers and distributors of non-food consumables including batteries, toiletries, medicines and recordable media. Stocking a wide range of branded products, the company prides itself on excellent service, low prices and a wide variety of stock for its customers.
Dynamic Systems has built an impressive reputation for providing bespoke solutions to help clients achieve the most cost-effective warehouse and logistics operations to improve their profitability. Many systems can fit easily into existing installations, ensuring minimal downtime and maintaining productivity.
