The Challenge

DHL in Liverpool were in need of more space inside their warehouse. We were contracted to work within a functioning warehouse and minimise any disruptions of day to day operations and staff movements.

CREATING MORE SPACE WITH RELOCATION SKATES

Using our own racking skate system, we were able to move the existing racking frames whilst they remained intact. 

Using the skates allowed us to modify the aisle widths and convert them into VNA’s (Very Narrow Aisle) for use with a VNA truck. 

Our racking skates made this process far more quicker than a dismantle and rebuild. It meant that the customer wouldn’t experience any disruption as the frames all stay stood in the air as it was moved. 

This method of moving the bays whilst on skates, will have undoubtedly saved the customer hundreds of thousands of pounds, as their current sprinkler system didn’t need to be dismantled or reinstalled.

What did DHL say about our conduct?

"PD Industrial have been brilliant from planning to execution. They managed CDM with no issues whatsoever. Phil looked after and orchestrated the 8 different contractors to ensure there was now downtime on their tasks."

A HAPPY CLIENT

Aaron Cunningham, Continuous Improvement Manager & Project Manager DHL went on to say:

Their approach using the skate system was fantastic.  The project timeframe was originally going to be 12 weeks and we would have lost a large number of bays. The skates allowed us to reduce the time down to 8 weeks and we could continue to move between chambers and racking and still pick.”
