Keg storage systems are meant to augment and enhance the current storage method, not conflict with it. A full analysis of the current number of SKUs and how they’re stored will help the system designer develop a layout that streamlines the storage and picking process from start to finish. This process includes doing CAD layout drawings, which help the client visualize the footprint of the rack system and how the racking will look and operate once it’s installed.
The Rack Systems Specialist will also ask about other aspects of their operation, such as aisle width and the types of lift trucks used. A major part of refining keg storage operations is discovering opportunities to make keg storage easier, faster, and more efficient. These opportunities don’t always lie in the keg flow system itself, but can include things like travel time and the organization of the system in relation to the rest of the warehouse.
Once you’ve gone through the planning and design phases you’ll move on to the installation and implementation phases. It’s important not to neglect the importance of these steps. As a turnkey rack systems provider, we know from first-hand experience the importance of professional installation and implementation. That’s why we not only see your project through to the end, but continue working with you after your rack system design and installation are complete.
