When you introduce a shelving or racking system into a warehouse, you’ll require other associated material handling equipment, a fact that is often overlooked when making the decision to implement these systems. We strongly urge customers to contact us prior to purchase, in order to discuss the complete package of equipment that may be needed. Even taking into account that either a stacker or a fork-lift truck will be required, these items require a level of operator training and a comprehensive maintenance program to support the on-going efficient use of the machine.

There are several other items of equipment to consider such as pallet trucks, dock-loading ramps and safety guard railing, all of which may be needed to ensure economic and safe operation. The racking or shelving systems will need cleaning from time to time, so the correct access equipment will be required in order to facilitate safe and easy access. In addition to these considerations, you may also need labelling, waste control and personal protective equipment. In conclusion, there’s a lot to consider, so a good start would be to talk to the experts who can advise on all aspects.

At Action Handling we pride ourselves on going the extra mile for our clients.  We are always available to discuss your requirements end-to-end, regardless of size or budget.  Furthermore, if during your initial consultation we cannot find the goods ‘off-the-shelf’, we will design and manufacture them bespoke to your specification.
