Shelving and storage company, Rapid Racking, has completed a large scale installation for OCS Worldwide, Coventry.

OCS Worldwide, the courier and logistics network for business commodities, required an efficient storage system to accommodate up to 1,300 pallets within their 885m2 premises.

Gary Billingham of OCS called in Rapid Racking, the Cotswolds based specialists – currently celebrating 25 years in business – to provide the most suitable storage structure.

The site, now complete with a practical and bespoke Rapid Racking pallet racking system specifically designed for the site’s operation, has since become a key storage and distribution facility for the international organisation.

Steve Carter, one of Rapid Racking’s most experienced designers, oversaw the project. As Gary Billingham says: “Steve gave us a racking facility that really made our space work for us. We’re extremely pleased with it.”

The Design team, Rapid Racking’s group of accomplished and highly experienced shelving experts, specialise in large and demanding projects. The service provides customers with expert advice, no obligation quotes, plans, site visits and installation where needed.

Following a site visit to the Coventry warehouse, Steve Carter had presented a detailed CAD drawing and specification to OCS Worldwide within days.  Steve says: “It was clear that our heavy duty Adjustable Pallet Racking system would work best for this particular project. It can make best use of the available space and provides safe individual access to each pallet location.”

Rapid Racking offer an extensive product range covering tailored solutions such as pallet racking, mezzanine flooring, narrow aisle racking and more. It also covers generic solutions such as containers, handling, office or workshop storage and shelving offering a selection of options to suit customers’ individual needs.

Not long after the plans for the project were agreed, the deliveries were made and the installation was underway. A fully qualified team of SEIRS installers spent only 3 days constructing the racking system at the Coventry based OCS warehouse.

OCS Worldwide has been left with a storage and distribution centre fitted not only with a racking system able to accommodate the required number of pallets, but also a system that enhances safety and efficiencies in the business operation. “Pallet racking, when correctly specified, makes pallet storage easy, quick and safe” comments Steve Carter.

“The skill to construct an installation of this scale in such a short time was very impressive” notes Gary Billingham. “Evidently Rapid Racking lives up to its name”.
