In early 2014, after several months of perseverance, Palian (Pty) Ltd was granted an opportunity to assist a reputable Logistics company with a warehousing solution for their new warehouse facility.
As it was their very first order from this customer, it was vital for Palian (Pty) Ltd to establish a good working relationship with their new valued customer. DC #1 only required 1982 pallet positions, as per customer needs, so only 50% of the new warehouse space was utilized.
With great satisfaction on the DC #1 installation, the customer provided Palian (Pty) Ltd with another opportunity later in 2014 to install DC #2 on the same premises. After various site visits and technical CAD drawings to ensure the customer was maximizing his storage space, the installation started in early 2015. Pallet racking to accommodate 4618 pallet positions was manufactured, delivered and installed successfully, signing off the project with great satisfaction.
Fast forward to mid 2015 and once again this fast-growing Logistics company was expanding. They started building their DC #3 on the same premises. This warehouse was practically a mirror image of DC #2 but Palian managed to add in more pallet positions bringing it up to a total of 4852 pallet positions.
On completion of DC #3 the storage space was almost fully utilized and the customer requested that Palian go back to DC #1 and maximize the unused 50%. Palian managed to add an extra 2252 pallet positions, which will take the total project to 13704 pallet positions in all three warehouses.
