Merchandise Warehouse has announced a grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony for its newest facility opening August 30, 2016, in Indianapolis IN.
The new cold storage facility will feature a Robotic Radio Shuttle system for transporting and retrieving pallets to and from a high-density, 40-foot-deep lane racking system that adds 14,000 pallet positions of storage capacity.
Other cutting-edge improvements include additional in rack blast freezing capabilities that allow freezing room temperature pallets in 36-48 hours, conveyors for transporting pallets, and automatic wrapping systems.
“We’re going to see a huge increase in accuracy, flexibility, visibility, and throughput, which translates into a huge decrease in costs, damage, and driver wait time,” said Tim Siddiq, Merchandise Warehouses chief executive officer and president. “We’ve come a long way since my grandfather’s warehouse. We’re ready to take it to the next level.”
The grand opening event, free to the public, will give attendees the chance to experience what increased service and lower costs will look like. Take facility tours, network with industry VIPs and speakers, and witness firsthand the state-of-the-art robotic technology. Watch pallets placed on robotic radio-controlled shuttles that take them into a deep-lane, high-density, 40-ft-high racking system, 33 pallets deep. Food and prizes will be provided.
