Barsan Global Logistics, a logistics operator with a presence on five continents, will equip its Willebroek (Belgium) warehouse with pallet racks from Mecalux able to house more than 33,200 pallets.
The new warehouse, divided into two ‘cells’, will comprise 8.5 m tall racks and five shelf levels able to withstand up to 2,700 kg each. This system will offer the merchandise top strength, adaptability and versatility, achieving an excellent space usage without losing direct access to any pallet.
Operators will run trilateral forklifts to handle the pallets in the racks, devices which are highly-suited to working in narrow aisleways. Some storage aisles will stretch up to 84 m long, which is why lower passageways will be opened up, improving the connection between them.
Mehmet Can Günaydın - Business Development Executive
“At Barsan we prefer partnering up with global organisations like our own. Having had the chance to work with Mecalux in other countries, our satisfaction with those projects was the main reason we chose them again. We are always looking for well motivated, solution orientated providers like Mecalux, and are proud to say Mecalux fits the bill.”
