American Warehouse Systems was recently contacted by an Air Force base in Germany to help them with a new project. They had a building that was formerly used as an aircraft shelter and the customer wanted to turn it into a cargo storage area. They planned to store 463L pallets, which are the Air Force standard pallets used to transport military cargo and can hold up to 10,000 lbs each. The customer was concerned that offloading would be difficult due to the size and weight surrounding the pallets.
Our design specialists worked closely with the customer to come up with a turnkey custom mezzanine with a pallet conveyor that would meet every need the customer had and they were able to purchase the system on our GSA contract.
During the approval process, the Air Force reevaluated the plans for future use of the building and decided that the structure was not suitable for the storage system they wanted. They ultimately resolved to put the system in another building on the base. Our team worked with the end users to design a new system layout that fit all their needs.
Our installation team was able to install the elevated mezzanine platform and 463L pallet storage conveyor while working closely with the end user to cause as little disturbance as possible. The customer was so pleased with the finished product and American Warehouse Systems that we are now in the process of helping them design another storage system.
