A well-designed material handling system and storage layout is critical to warehouse productivity and space efficiency. Whether you’re building a new warehouse, expanding your facility or looking to improve your current space, E-Distribution has the expertise and resources you need. We use the latest assessment and CAD 3-D simulation tools to analyze your current operation and develop a custom layout to meet your goals.
We’ll provide any one or all of these design services depending on your needs and budget:
Phase 1: Facility and Data Analysis – We analyze inventory data, SKU movement and cube details to measure the effectiveness of existing storage mediums and determine storage types and quantities needed to improve efficiency.
Phase 2: Concept Plan Development – Our design engineers develop several concept plans for various material handling system layouts and equipment options (including racking systems and distribution system designs), each with budget pricing to verify and return on investment.
Phase 3: Equipment Specification & Request for Quote – Without a dedicated material handing system specialist, this process can be overwhelming. We can prepare all requirements for the system request for proposal (RFP), including:
- Equipment Specifications – storage racking, conveyor, pick modules, AS/RS
- Detailed CAD Drawings – building, floor plan and storage rack elevations
- Load Capacities – for all equipment specified
- Building Code Requirements
