Food and Beverages Warehouse Racking

Food and beverage storage rack systems are of great interest to the whole world, especially the new technologies brought by food and beverage companies, in today's world where competition has increased to extremes in every branch. The products, which are packaged after the production stage and sent to their buyers in this way, are kept in warehouses for a certain period of time and then hit the roads to meet the end consumer.

Companies aim to implement logistics processes in the best way and at the lowest cost in order to gain competitive advantage and increase profit rates. Warehouse design, which is the most important part of the process, offers a great competitive advantage for businesses.

In beverage and food industry warehouse shelving systems, the FIFO - first in first out method, in which the first product placed on the shelf for stacking purposes is the first to be released, is the most preferred operating model. Food and beverage storage shelving systems are sometimes stacked on pallets on the floor in order to use empty spaces, instead of stacking on high industrial shelves in warehouse settlements. Some rules and standards should be determined for this method, which is not recommended by storage experts.

Food and Beverage Storage Shelving Systems Features and Advantages

For example, dry food storage should be measured at 20 - 25 degrees, and cold food storage should be measured frequently. If the circulation of the entrance and exit doors of the cold food store is excessive, there will be changes in the thermostat settings of this cold food store, which will lead to storage and energy inefficiency.

In food and beverage storage shelving systems, food and beverages should be stacked in such a way that they are not kept in the warehouse for too long in case of spoilage. The importance of food and beverage storage shelving systems also comes to the fore here. Packaged pallets that can be automatically brought to the logistics center and not damaged are the systems preferred by every company.

What is the importance of the material used in food and beverage industry storage systems?

Nowadays, where warehouse efficiency is prioritized, warehouse shelving systems should not cause any hygienic problems. For this reason, it is essential to produce warehouse shelving systems from materials that will not be easily corroded during cleaning and that can withstand disasters such as earthquakes/fire. All warehouses containing electrical components must be cleaned at regular intervals. During this cleaning, the shelves containing food and beverage items must be cleaned more carefully. Any wear that may occur here may shorten the life of your Automatic Storage System. In order to keep this wear to a minimum, ÜÇGE Warehouse Racking Systems always uses the highest quality steel in its material usage. 

What is the contribution of the smart warehouse system to profitability in the food and beverage industry?

How to remove pallets from shelves in food and beverage storage systems?

During this process, transportation can be carried out with the help of a forklift in manual or semi-automatic warehouses, but this also allows for human error. Removing pallets from shelves is one of the most important points in warehouse and shelving systems. For this reason, strict precautions must be taken during transportation. Damage to the packaging of one of the Food or Beverage pallets during transportation with a forklift may cause a dissatisfied customer during the sale, and in extreme cases, it may even pose a threat to human health. In fully automatic storage systems, it is much easier to pick up pallets from the shelves. All you have to do is enter the location of the product you want to be picked up on the system called the shuttle. Within a few minutes, the shuttle will load the pallet filled with food or beverages onto the vehicle that will carry it.

How to ensure food and beverage storage systems safety?

The topics of warehouse shelving systems occupational safety and warehouse shelving systems periodic control should be discussed together with the project management process and after-sales services policy, as the manufacturer and the supporting company, with the brand's OHS control personnel and occupational safety experts. The inspection report of rack systems in compliance with the TS EN 15635 standard and the qualification controls of work equipment and the warehouse security measures taken are the responsibility of the warehouse management.

According to the TS EN 15635 standard, employees are given short training on issues such as maintenance, labeling, stacking, and the condition of pallets that customers need to do in line with the standards regarding shelf systems.

In order to prevent conditions in which food and beverage industry products become damaged and unconsumable, warehouse management and shipping operation employees are obliged to ensure the cleanliness and hygiene standards of material storage systems areas. In the food and beverage industry, warehouses should be designed to be added to the layout plan after physical, microbiological and chemical contamination simulations. In addition, warehouse management, which controls pest control processes in warehouses, prevents stored palletized food and beverage products from being damaged.

Packaged products and pallets ready for shipment should be clearly defined, and a first-in, first-out philosophy should be applied at the beginning of the shipment process.

Additionally, packaged food and beverage products should not be allowed to remain in warehouses for too long. The storage system, entrance and exit to the work area and personnel rest areas, which are included in the architectural peripheral units during the project process, should not be at a point open to the intervention of foreign objects. The area where the returned and return stocks are kept should be labeled as a very different place from the main storage point.
