When Tarlu needed to elevate its storage and logistics capabilities, it chose Locators as its trusted partner. Our experience in warehouse optimisation fits their ethos of excellence and personalised service. We managed to increase Tarlu’s storage capacity to approximately 1,600 pallets in a two-phase operation. Our input now underpins Tarlu’s most significant site and Head Office.

Locators have integrated full pallet and pick locations to meet Tarlu’s clients’ needs. Plus, our specifications have since rolled out consistently across their multiple sites. Yet, the project didn’t just stop at warehouse optimisation. We fortified their warehouse with safety features like barrier systems, anti-collapse mesh, and wire mesh decks for pick locations. This attention to detail has enabled Tarlu to safely meet its growing eCommerce demand and maintain its stellar service.

Our relationship with Tarlu exemplifies a symbiotic partnership. With the integration of our material handling equipment, we have committed to excellence, safety, and, most importantly, customer satisfaction. Yet, our attention to enhancing warehouse efficiency has helped ensure a seamless online shopping experience for the end user. Together, we have built a solution that meets and exceeds expectations. Tarlu has since reinforced its position as a 3PL provider of choice by working with Locators. They are now better equipped for the challenges and opportunities of the modern business landscape.

Warehouse Design

Our initial task involved conceptualising a warehouse design tailored to Tarlu’s unique needs. The project began with a thorough assessment of the existing space, workflow, and storage requirements. The final design not only maximised space utilisation. It also embedded a suite of features for future scalability and operational efficiency.

The design included a mix of full pallet and pick locations. These were precisely calibrated to support Tarlu’s bulk storage customers and eCommerce fulfilment. It also featured easy access routes to improve the flow of goods, thereby reducing the time required for loading and unloading. This meticulous design planning ensures that Tarlu can efficiently meet complex client demands.

Warehouse Draft Design Options

Effective draft designs give you clear choices about the best way ahead and serve as the foundation upon which final decisions are made.

Management of Warehouse Installation

Management of Warehouse Installation

Our installers and storage contract specialists will oversee the entire project. This way, it’s executed successfully — from the concept through to the completed installation.

Warehouse Supply & Fitting

Once the blueprint was finalised, we moved on to the supply and fitting stage. This involved procuring the highest quality materials and components. Our experienced team professionally installed this storage system. The installation effectively translated our design vision into a physical infrastructure.

We ensured that all installations complied with industry standards for quality and safety. This seamless process allowed Tarlu to continue its operations with minimal disruption. Not only did we make the transition to the new system as smooth as possible. We also made it expandable and repeatable to additional sites.

Adjustable Pallet Racking

The cornerstone of this project was the adjustable pallet racking system. These modular racks were designed for flexibility. Not only can they accommodate the varied and evolving needs of Tarlu’s storage requirements. They were installed to withstand rigorous use and serve as the backbone of Tarlu’s storage operations.

We chose specifications consistent with those at Tarlu’s other sites. It thereby ensures uniformity and ease of operations across multiple locations. Each location can hold up to 1,600 pallets, supporting both full pallet and pick locations. This provides Tarlu with a robust system that aligns with its focus on eCommerce and bulk storage fulfilment.

Barriers and Rack Protection

Barriers & Rack Protection

To avoid buckling the structure, Locators provide a number of protection solutions. These include upright protection, barrier systems and protection posts.

Barriers & Rack Protection

To bolster warehouse safety, we integrated a comprehensive system. This system was composed of a range of barriers and rack protection systems. These were strategically placed to safeguard both personnel and products. The result is a safer, more secure working environment for Tarlu’s team.

Customised barriers were implemented around key warehouse areas. The implementation of such obstacles helps prevent any accidental collisions or mishaps. In addition to this, we also installed upright protectors and anti-collapse mesh. These offered an extra layer of security for stored items.

Combi Aisle-Master

The Combi Aisle-Master 15NE was another vital component of this project. Its integration was not just about adding another piece of machinery. It was about enhancing the overall workflow and space utilisation in Tarlu’s warehouse.

The Aisle-Master works in perfect harmony with other trucks we’ve previously supplied. It was instrumental in helping enhance multi-level picking efficiencies. As part of a broader warehouse expansion, it helps maximise Tarlu’s operational capabilities.
