In the heart of North Dakota’s industrial sector, companies are embarking on a journey to redefine warehouse efficiency. This guide offers actionable insights and a path to success for warehouse managers and businesses seeking to enhance their operations. By examining the strategies of Lunseth Plumbing and Heating and IDI Distributors, we provide strategies for transforming your warehouse into a model of efficiency and innovation.


Lunseth Plumbing and Heating: A Case Study in Excellence

Lunseth Plumbing and Heating, a business in the Grand Forks community for over 85 years, exemplifies excellence in distribution and service. Catering to a diverse client base, they’ve established themselves as a leader in the plumbing and heating sector.

The introduction of selective pallet racking by Lunseth marks a significant stride in warehouse optimization. This system not only enhances storage capacity but also streamlines inventory management. Such improvements directly contribute to their ability to serve customers more efficiently, reflecting in their business growth and customer satisfaction.

IDI Distributors: Optimizing Storage and Distribution

IDI Distributors in Fargo, ND, has partnered with designers at AK Material Handling Systems to implement new and used selective pallet racking to facilitate safe storage for their spray foam distribution processes. 

In this turnkey selective pallet racking project, we provided the pallet racking, coordinated the delivery, and provided pallet rack installation to get this facility up and running as quickly as possible.

“IDI Distributors has been a great client to work with! We’ve worked on multiple projects over the years. IDI reached out to us with a list of selective pallet racking items needed for a new location in Fargo, ND. We were able to supply the selective racking delivery and installation using our standard stock racking.”
