The decision to create a brand new Distribution Centre, close to junction 15A on the M1 motorway at Northampton, has given the Blacks Leisure Group an opportunity to review all aspects of their storage and product movement within the warehouse environment.
CI Logistics have been awarded the contract to provide a three-tier raised storage platform (RSP) totalling some 15,000m². This will help to exploit the cubic capacity of the new building. A series of safety pallet gates at each floor level will interface with a narrow aisle installation and enable goods to be selected from bulk storage and presented to the appropriate floor for replenishment into longspan shelving for picking. This whole installation; floor, staircases and pallet safety gates will be manufactured by CI Logistics in their Wrexham Factory.
Longspan shelving which is also to be supplied by CI Logistics; for installation on the first and second tiers of the RSP, will cater for the storage of boxed goods on each floor and the specification of this racking also allows for floor-level locations for pallets of bulk goods.
The Blacks Leisure Group use CI Logistics regularly to supply storage and materials handling solutions both for their Distribution Centres and for their retail outlets. This includes Level 2® floors, ARS shelving and Hook-In® garment racking.
