Pallet storage, or warehouse pallet racking, is a cost-effective way of storing materials or goods in horizontal rows with multiple levels, maximising space.
At S&J Haulage, we offer pallet storage for pallets of all shapes and sizes, with the ideal warehouse sizes for pallet storage.
Located in the Center of the UK, our multiple warehouse site can accomodate raw and finished product for distribution
There are different types of warehouses available for different needs, for example:
Unlike bonded warehousing, public warehousing is open to the general public, offering a range of facilities ranging from packaging, shipping, and transportation.
This is the go-to option for businesses looking to store large quantities of goods and are fully equipped with experienced staff members.
Private warehouses are owned either by a specific company or an individual and are not open for public use. There are many benefits of opting for private warehousing, the main being an increase in security as well as greater flexibility.
When you need to store items that need to be kept at a specific low temperature, refrigerated warehousing is the perfect option for you. It helps to extend the shelf life of perishable goods, including foods and pharmaceuticals, and so refrigerated warehouses are essential or businesses providing such products.
The dimensions you need depend entirely on the pallet you are looking to store. For example, UK pallets are 1200mm x 1000mm and are typically stored on a 900mm deep frame with two pallets per 2700mm beam.
One of the most common warehouse pallet storage systems used today is adjustable pallet racking (APR). This can be used for heavy palletised goods, and requires forklifts. Due to the adjustable nature, beam levels can be lowered or heightened to accommodate various pallet sizes.
Situated on the outskirts of Melton Mowbray, ideally located in the centre of England within easy reach of the M1, A46 & A1 our warehouse is just 20 minutes’ drive from Leicester or Nottingham.
There is a comprehensive list of physical goods that can be safely stored in warehouses, for example:
Manufacturing and construction businesses often store raw materials ahead of use. This allows them to accommodate to any fluctuations, ensuring they always have the correct materials on hand to cater to any incoming orders. This can range from specific items such as nuts, bolts, and ball bearings, to chemicals, minerals, or grains.
Some businesses using machinery may wish to keep a warehouse full of spare parts, allowing them to quickly attend to any repairs that need to be carried out for their vehicles. Any kind of spare part or items that assist with production flow can be stored as MRO (maintenance, repair, or operation) storage.
For businesses providing customers with products, such as clothing or furniture and interior companies, for example, warehouse storage may be a suitable option to ensure there is always an inventory of extra products to cater to demands, or to ensure businesses can keep their shelves replenished with stock.
When products have been completed, they can be stored in warehouses to make room on the production line to begin the production of the next batch of products. This allows businesses to meet customer demands quickly and efficiently.
