Enhanced Warehouse Efficiency At Large Mine In Mauritania
Solution Offers Warehouse Efficiency, Reduced Stock Loss, Protected Components And Improved Staff Safety And Productivity
Prior to the fitting out by SEC Exports (then Stodec Trading Ltd) all items had been stored either out in the open or in a succession of shipping containers spread over the site. Component damage and deterioration was very high and finding an essential part when needed often involved a lengthy search. The lack of proper component warehousing and the ability to implement security, stock control and stock selection effectively was a growing concern both for production and servicing. Many components would need to be replaced without having been used, therefore stock wastage was rising, resulting in unnecessary additional costs.
Stodec utilised their many years of experience in storage equipment layout and design to maximise capacity and to meet the client objectives of access, protection, stock control and warehouse operation efficiency.
The mine’s location in Mauritania was remote, so Stodec planning needed to include consideration of shipping and installation logistics for the storage equipment. A wide range of different storage systems were used in the installation to ensure that the vast range of components and equipment were stored in the most effective way.
