The shelving system selected was the Connect 2 system, which offers both a very quick installation and lead-time from the manufacturing process.

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.
