Strategic Planning From The Materials Handling Systems Experts

For nearly 20 years, we’ve been providing our clients with speciality materials handling systems to fit their specific needs. From pallet flow racks to conveyor systems, we have everything you need to improve efficiency and productivity within your warehouse or facility. We also ensure that strategic planning is done carefully and safely during the entire process. 

In today’s age, the dual pressures of improving customer service while also reducing costs have made single facility distribution centers a key business priority. This increased focus and attention to customer service and reduced costs means lots of careful planning should go into new facilities or the consolidation of many facilities into one. Location, size, clear-height, product flow, customer demographics, risk abatement, and much more must all be scrutinized to ensure that your goals are both achieved as well as maintained. 

Having several distribution centers that must coordinate logistics already have the complex task of strategic planning. Along with multiplying everything that’s needed for a single facility, planning must also include freight logistics as well as regional considerations – for example, the differences in labor pools and permit requirements. Here at DAK Equipment & Engineering, we have the knowledge and skill to help you plan and optimize your multiple location distribution system. We evaluate every aspect of the logistics plan to ensure that we generate a scenario that helps you make the best choice.

Upgrade To Efficiency With Our Material Handling Systems

When you choose DAK Equipment & Engineering, you’re choosing a team that finds solutions that work for you. Within our selection of material handling systems and solutions, we’re sure that we can find a system that works for you. It’s time to upgrade your warehouse to a more efficient stocking system so you can get the most out of your space and save time and money while doing so. Whether you’re looking for a pallet flow rack system or a new mezzanine level addition, you’ve came to the right place.

Some of the solutions we offer to our valued customers:

Selective Pallet Racks. As one of the most efficient material handing solutions, selective pallet racking is the building block on which we build some of our other solutions, too. This system provides the best ratio of storage capacity to product selectivity. Who does this work for? Whether you have a basic storing needs or a complex order picking operation, selective pallet racking is an efficient storage option.

Double Deep Pallet Racks. Double deep pallet racking is the next level of the selective pallet rack system. This is achieved by placing a second selective pallet rack immediately behind the first one, removing the need for an aisle in between the two rows and giving you much more floor space within your warehouse. Who does this work for? This is ideal for a facility that doesn’t need 100% immediate access to all products. If you’re looking to economically increase your storage density, this solution is for you.

We will be highlighting some more of our valued solutions within the coming weeks! Check back with us. Feel free to also browse our selection of material handling systems right here.

Carton flow adds efficiency because it eliminates conflict between stockers and pickers by separating the aisles while creating a high visibility of pick faces. This prevents out of stock situations while also providing a first in, first out rotation. This is ideal for: If you’re looking to reduce labor costs while increasing the ability for rapid order picking and high SKU traffic.

Pick Modules. Pick module systems are for high volume order processing facilities. They add a tremendous boost to productivity because they integrate pallet storage, carton flow, conveyor systems and other material handling technologies into a turn-key order processing solution that can decrease labor costs and pick times. This is ideal if: If you have a high-order volumes and you believe that cost is more important than gaining a competitive edge while gaining a technologically advanced distribution system, then the pick modules system is for you.
