5S programs made easier with designated space for pallets and huge visual improvement in work areas. Improve pride of place among employees from better appearance. Improve morale as injuries are reduced. Improve morale when workers see their safety is taken seriously.
Towers can be clustered together near a dock so an entire incoming truckload of pallets can be put away safely until they are needed in a processing / packing area. Process areas that create empty pallets as material is consumed, and use pallets for shipping at different rates can eliminate fork tuck travel time by storing many pallets nearby in one pallet footprint. When time permits, a fork truck driver can make the long trip from the process area to a storage area with a full stack rather than just a few at a time.
Anywhere in a facility that has to store pallets, but needs floorspace badly. Reduce outside pallet storage by going higher inside. Many benefits of keeping your fork trucks inside and reducing travel time for storage or retrieval. When paired with a QTEK DStacker, reloading time is reduced by having a large supply of pallets next to the dispenser.
