STORAGE SYSTEM DESIGN AND INTEGRATION
PERMITS AND COMPLIANCE
SNC offers full service structural engineering as well as in-house high piled storage consulting services. From new system design and integration to retroactive permitting of existing projects, SNC can help evaluate, advise, design, engineer and ultimately permit warehouse systems that meet local jurisdiction building and fire codes.
A tailored warehouse layout that focuses on operational efficiency and cubic utilization is an integral part of successfully maximizing your warehouse footprint. We understand how to utilize new and used pallet rack shelving, mezzanines, pick modules, shelving systems, and other material handling techniques to maximize your footprint to its full potential. Before you sign a new lease or prepare for an expansion, allow SNC to assess your needs. We have the CAD capabilities to provide detailed renderings that maximize your cubic capacity resulting in reduced footprints and minimized overhead expenses. All of which point to the bottom line.
RECONFIGURATION AND RELOCATION
Whether your organization is faced with a relocation, consolidation or simple rack reconfiguration, our team can help. SNC has assisted hundreds of organizations of all sizes and industries plan, prepare, and execute the transition into a new or reconfigured space. We believe that a relocation or reconfiguration is a unique opportunity to enhance the organization at the operational level.
PALLET SHUTTLE AND AUTOMATION
Automated systems are a sophisticated way of maximizing both efficiency and density. Automation reduces reliance upon forklifts and forklift operators to store and retrieve pallets through the introduction of pallet shuttles. These pallet shuttles operate deep within storage lanes and with minute levels of precision. This solution work best with high volumes and low SKU counts. Due to the positive impact automation can have on cubic density and pick efficiency, in combination with the reduced need for forklifts and operators, automated solutions can provide short-term ROI and long-term productivity.
Motion and conveyor systems are critical to elevating efficiency and process improvement. Whether powered or gravity fed, single box or pallet flow, a well thought-out and designed conveyor can make all the difference in eliminating foot travel for employees. Taking time out of the operation equates to efficiency. Motion systems help take time out of processes and often have a much shorter ROI than anticipated. SNC has the knowledge and expertise to evaluate your current condition, provide an expected ROI, and implement motion into your operation.
