Solve the puzzle of warehouse storage with Locators’ bespoke solutions

Maximise your space with expert warehouse storage solutions from Locators.

Imagine your warehouse space is a giant puzzle with pieces scattered all around. The pieces represent your inventory, equipment, and personnel. The objective is to use the pieces to maximise your space, streamline your workflow, and optimise your productivity. However, solving this puzzle can be a daunting task. Poorly laid-out warehouses can hinder workflow, reduce efficiency, and lower productivity. Together, this culminates in reduced margins — but this is where bespoke storage solutions come in. One of the biggest challenges businesses face regarding warehouse storage is finding the right racking system. Every company has unique storage needs. It all depends on its products, inventory levels, and workflow processes. Yet, the wrong racking system can be ill-suited to a particular warehouse. This can result in wasted space, reduced productivity, and higher operational costs. In other words, some puzzle pieces don’t fit together. This is where Locators come in.

Locators are the South’s leading fully integrated material handling and storage system company. Our storage division specialises in delivering solutions tailored to each business’s unique needs.

That’s why Locators takes a holistic approach to warehouse storage. Our integrated material handling equipment (MHE) and storage solutions maximise efficiency and productivity. Our experts begin with a site survey, vital for obtaining crucial preliminary data. This includes feasibility reporting and accurate estimations of time and costs for your solution. They then provide effective draft designs that give you clear choices about the best way forward. Developing such options demands informed decision-making at the conceptual stage. The most astute of which includes a clear understanding of the challenges faced by your business.

Like a puzzle, the key to success is finding the right fit. Our final design and project quotation incorporate your MHE and storage solution needs. We utilise programmes like SketchUp 3D for easy visualisation. Once approved, our trusted specialists will fully manage the installation. We’ll deliver a storage solution backed by data, analysis, and experience to ensure a safe and efficient working environment. All in all, warehouse storage is like a giant puzzle. Yet, pieces must fit to maximise your space, streamline your workflow, and optimise your productivity. Locators specialise in finding the right fit.

Six-Step Process

At Locators, we know that each business is unique. That’s why we follow a six-step process to deliver bespoke warehouse storage solutions tailored to your needs. Our approach ensures that we take the time to understand your business requirements and develop a solution that . . .

🟪 | Optimises your warehouse space
🟪 | Enhances efficiency
🟪 | And maximises your investment

Here’s a breakdown of each step . . .

 

  1. Site Survey
    The first step in our process is a site survey. Our team of experts will conduct a walkover survey to gather crucial preliminary data. This will include feasibility reporting and accurate time and cost estimations for your solution.

    🟪 | A site survey ensures we fully understand your warehouse requirements
    🟪 | Identifies any potential challenges to be addressed before installation
    🟪 | It enables us to provide accurate cost and time estimations for solution

  2. Draft Design Options
    Effective draft designs give you clear choices about the best way forward. They serve as the foundation upon which final decisions are made. Yet, developing the options demands informed decision-making at the conceptual stage. There must be a clear understanding of the challenges faced by a business. Locators will work with you to create the best design for your needs.

    🟪 | Draft design options provide a clear understanding of the problems
    🟪 | Helps ensure that the final solution is aligned with your business needs

    🟪 | Our independent advice ensures you receive the best value for money
    🟪 | Ensures the MHE is integrated seamlessly into your storage operations

  4. Final Design & Project Quotation
    Once we’ve identified your MHE and storage solutions requirements, we will incorporate them into the design. This unified approach is generally in response to the client’s preferred solution. For ease of visualisation, our specialists utilise SketchUp 3D. This helps our clients envision the design rather than rely purely on 2D schematics (although we also offer 2D installation plans). Once okayed, we’ll put forward a full project quotation for installation and supply.

    🟪 | The use of SketchUp 3D enables our clients to visualise the design

Our team of trusted specialists will do what we do best — deliver a storage solution backed up by trusted data, analysis, and experience. We provide fully integrated MHE and storage systems for your business. Our installers and storage contract specialists will oversee the entire project. This way, it’s executed successfully — from the conceptual idea to the completed installation.
