What We Provided Poole Bay Holdings

At Locators, our mission was to make Poole Bay Holdings’ new extensive warehouse more efficient. We were tasked with improving both their storage and operations. Our bespoke strategy commenced with the relocation of existing pallet racking, which Locators had previously supplied. Adding new narrow aisle racking it helped elevate their storage capacity to over 3,000 pallet locations. To adapt to their changing needs, we combined a mix of narrow aisles to use space better and wider aisles to speed up ground-level picking and restocking.

To further optimise their storage strategy, we implemented drive-in racking systems. These systems were tailored for high-volume stock-keeping units (SKUs). This maximised the use of space and ensured a fluid movement of goods across the warehouse. These changes were crucial. They let the company accommodate their wide product range and keep high service standards. Our holistic approach also focused on safety and operational clarity. We installed anti-collapse mesh, barriers, and guards to secure the premises. Custom wire mesh decks and warehouse dividers were added to improve navigation and picking. We also fitted clear labels and signage to the pallet racking. The latest Kärcher cleaning equipment was also deployed to maintain a pristine environment.

Locators’ solutions included supply, installation, and customisation to meet specific needs. It enhanced Poole Bay Holdings’ ability to serve its customers with unmatched efficiency and safety. This project didn’t just reinforce our dedication to delivering high-quality, tailored solutions. It also equipped Poole Bay Holdings with the tools to sustain its growth and continue its commitment to excellence. They have since been featured in the Bournemouth Echo and DorsetBiz, with the latter calling them “The biggest local company you’ve never heard of.”
