Multi-tier Racking Structure

Multi-level system with hand-loaded shelves

How does a Multi-tier Racking Structure function?

A multi-tier racking-structure functions as a multi-level system that supports hand loaded shelved levels. It is a solution that offers high-levels of space utilisation.

A multi-tier system is engineered to maximise picking operations. It is best suited to businesses with a high number of SKUs (stock-keeping units). The system creates a highly dense storage capacity within a limited footprint and is a highly efficient and cost-effective way of utilising the cube (warehouse area).

The system is best suited to small parts, online eCommerce and pick and pack operations, where thousands of SKUs need to be stored and retrieved at any given moment.

Warehouse relocation and/or site expansion can be rather costly, and in a lot of cases, is unnecessary. You could be under-utilising the height of your existing warehouse, therefore missing a key opportunity to maximise your existing operation.

Clients who we’ve installed the system for have seen massive gains throughout their operations, including saving on wasted operative time; speeding up pick and pack operations, and reducing the costs of other racking systems that may have proved ineffective or expensive in the long-term.

System Benefits

  • Maximise picking operations across multiple floors
  • Suitable for businesses with a high number of SKUs (stock-keeping units)
  • Highly dense storage capacity within a limited footprint
  • Offers greater flexibility
  • Enhanced Cubic Capacity  as it utilises the height of the cube

Common Uses

Multi-tier picking structures are very versatile and can cater for a wide range of operations. However, they are particularly suitable for warehouses that need the following:

  • Access to All Storage Locations – Due to the nature of the system and its setup, no area will be left inaccessible for picking.
  • Picking and Packing Operations such as small parts, key components, eCommerce and online retailers
  • Increased Productivity – Picker times can be greatly reduced, especially via the incorporation of goods lift or a conveyor system, etc.

This video showcases the installation of a UKWA, ‘Technical Innovation’ award-winning multi-tier for ILG (International Logistics Group Ltd). This solution was built to fully optimise the pick and pack procedure, providing ILG with the ability to offer their client’s next day delivery.

The solution combines an intelligent finger picking device, coupled with a rack-supported multi-tier, that was fitted with warehouse conveyors and gravity chutes that then feed product directly down to the pack and despatch area.

This solution is a prime example as to why SEC Storage is the right company to partner with for your potential multi-tier project. We pride ourselves not just on our award-winning work, but by making sure we deliver the right solutions for our clients every time.

Why choose a multi-tier racking system?

Warehouse relocation and / or site expansion can be rather costly, and in a lot of cases, may not be necessary. You could be under-utilising the height of your existing warehouse, therefore missing a key opportunity to maximise your existing operation.

A multi-tier racking system could allow you to greatly increase your floor space, maximise storage capacity, and make your overall picking and packing operation or small parts retrieval more efficient.

Clients who we’ve installed the system for have seen massive gains throughout their operations, including saving on wasted operative time, increased speed of  pick and pack operations, and reduced costs against other racking systems that may have proved ineffective or expensive in the long-term.
