Food Manufacturer

Custom solution for increased capacity

CHALLENGE:

A poultry food manufacturer wanted to make use of the nearly 40 feet of vertical height in its new cooler facility through dynamic storage optimizing a FIFO inventory model to avoid product expiration and ensure adherence to FDA requirements for food handling and storage.

SOLUTION:

PeakLogix implemented nearly 40 feet of custom vertical storage for the facility’s poultry distribution. The racking structure features a tailor-made drip pan system designed to collect any fluid that seeps from the products’ storage tubs. Using gravity flow rollers, stainless steel troughs and centralized piping, drippings are directed to a floor drain system, eliminating waste and ensuring product freshness. Gravity flow rollers were incorporated to direct product flow, for fluid collection and to enable a true FIFO inventory model.

RESULTS:

The implementation allows for maximum high-density storage, including approximately 450 pallets, incorporating a FIFO inventory model with minimum touches, and using a reduced workforce and less equipment resources.
