Not every building material can be stored in a simple pallet rack. Many substances have their own unique properties that need to be taken into account when designing a new storage solution. This applies not only to simple substances such as stone, sand or cement, but also to special areas such as storage capacity for technical equipment and machinery.
In this article, we therefore show you what storage solutions for building materials should take into account and how they do so in concrete terms.
Both from a legal point of view and for practical added value, a uniform storage concept for building materials in logistics is more than desirable. For example, building materials may not be temporarily stored on public land for specific projects without an exceptional permit.
For large construction companies and enterprises, it is therefore crucial to adapt their warehouses accordingly to the many different substances - and as close as possible to important customers.
While cantilever racks are usually the right approach for elongated wood materials, stone slabs or thin boards can be best placed in vertical racks.
Above all, the individual stocks are relevant, based on which the warehouse is aligned.
But not only the named types of shelves can be useful for your planning.
Primarily in well-equipped logistics operations, the number of digital storage solutions for building materials is also increasing significantly. This has the advantage that even the intermediate spaces in the warehouse can be better used and completely filled. In conjunction with cranes and remote-controlled systems, you retain access to your building materials at all times.
The technical systems here are precisely aligned with your warehouse structures to enable practical control. Even if the set-up is quite complex, it will certainly pay off for larger operational areas.
If you are looking for a new storage solution for building materials, the most important thing is a holistic service.
This makes it much easier for you to outsource the entire storage process and ensure constant availability.
Together with our partners, you have the opportunity to significantly increase your handling performance and to rely on a capable partner for order picking.
For each building material, there are different storage systems and solutions to obtain the desired efficiency. Therefore, it is important to have an intelligent and comprehensive orientation that allows a flexible response to the respective requirements of the operation.
The right storage solutions for building materials make it much easier to ensure the necessary processing on time and in the best coordinated manner.
