Increase of NOARK distribution center capacity
In November 2014 Noark increased capacity of its distribution center located near Prague.
Increase of the capacity was reached by installing new two floor gallery on which shelves for storing small quantities of items are placed. Additionally new high pallet racks were installed in the area released after moving shelves into the gallery.
This way we were able to increase the capacity of the warehouse by almost 50%.
The main reason for increasing the capacity was requirement of space for storing new assortment – metal sheet enclosures. However increase of the capacity enables to store also other new parts of continuously growing assortment of Noark products.
New equipment and increase of capacity also required change of internal procedures in the warehouse and improving functionalities of our warehouse management system so that warehouse operations are more effective and we can improve our delivery service to customers.
At the same time we renewed our machinery used in the warehouse.
