This storage system is highly suited for storing the large variety of pallets that Magazine Luiza utilises. Likewise, the direct access to all the SKUs provides exceptional flexibility when managing goods and preparing orders.
Due to this large variety of pallets, the rack levels were adjusted to the type of goods being stored and to its operations. Picking is done directly off the pallet on the lower rack levels, leaving product reserves on upper levels. Operators run reach trucks to handle pallets on top levels.
Frontal rack uprights were reinforced to improve safety levels of the racks that coincide with the emergency exit aisle. This safety measure focuses on cutting down on possible buckling caused by blows from warehouse equipment during load handling operations.
