Going Up: Logistics Leaders Solve Warehouse Space Constraints

Warehouse space, if available is too expensive, that is unless space utilization can increase 10 – 30% by simply adding elevation of storage capacity. Before going up, feet on the ground, there is a reason 3PLs (third-party logistics), distribution centers, warehouses, and manufacturing work cells have not considered adding a layer of shelving, racking, and conveyance. The limitation of the reach trucks needed to strategically “go up” have prohibited getting access to the extra level of mezzanine capacity. This constraint has been solved with robotics and industrial technology.
