This huge waste can be prevented if different types of businesses like agriculture and farming, real estate,mining and food beverage start using proper cold storage for storing their products. We have proudly completed our Racking systems installation project in Al Mawalih fruits and vegetable market. Our client is a marquee player in Building materials and FMCG (Frozen Commodities, Dry Commodities, and Fresh Produce) segment in Sultanate of Oman.

FMCG division has expanded into 5 distribution centers and Central logistics of 5000 pallet positions with various temperature and ripening chambers. This 3pl logistics is equipped with world class equipment and cold storage facilities. In the client’s endeavor to develop an adaptable racking system inside a cold room.

Palmore International LLC (PIL) had implied pallet racking system which is considered to be a key solution to most warehousing issues, the installed pallet racking system addressed the following challenges which the client had:

Working warehouse: It was a working warehouse wherein daily operation of storage and retrieval can’t be ceased. Being Fruits and vegetables perishable it was also not allowed to keep it outside the controlled temperature. So with these challenges racking work was needed to be carried out within the constraint of scarcity of space.
Cold room maintenance: While racking work was going on, the client was told to do maintenance work on the cold room by the facility owner.

Different types of SKUs: The client wanted to store Fruits and vegetables which comes under different sizes and packaging and it was a herculean task to standardize the solution

And by studying complete warehouse operation, SKUs, Materials handling Equipment (MHE) and cold room details properly made to fit the racking solution, and was defined with mutual agreement with the client. Wire Mesh shelving was proposed on the beam levels so that proper ventilation/ air flow and light exposure can be maintained inside the cold room. Also such wire mesh shelves help to a greater extent for water sprinklers in case of fire.
