Foodbank, a non-profit organisation which sources and supplies food to the needy, runs a distribution warehouse accessed by a large number of volunteers. It is an important part of a supply chain that helps to feed up to 166,000 people per day.
Foodbank needed an innovative yet affordable supplier to design and build the racking and shelving for its new distribution centre in Glendenning, NSW, to maximise the effectiveness of its 7,500 square metre warehouse. It required a system that is tall yet stable, durable and safe for high levels of pedestrian traffic. Being a non-profit organisation, value was also an important part of Foodbank’s tender process when selecting a racking and shelving supplier.
