The solution

PeakLogix designed a reconfiguration of the client’s Richmond, VA warehouse to be flexible enough to include additional business volumes from five regional branches into its existing facility.

The results

42% increase in storage capacity with the revised warehouse layout

The client realized a 42% increase in storage capacity with the revised warehouse layout, increasing cubic volume capacities and stating lanes, and reducing non-value added activities such as walk, search and reach time.
