Based in Manchester, Pace Logistics are specialists in logistics, transport and distribution. The company operates within the UK Pallet Express Delivery Network.
Requirement for covered loading area
Pace required an additional covered area to temporarily store goods ready for loading and unloading during busy times of the day. They specifically wanted an area that was separate from the existing warehouse operation to avoid complicating the system already in place. As members of the Pallet Network it was essential the new area kept goods dry and safe as they have a duty of care to look after their own clients' freight and also the freight they are handling for other Network members.
Canopy building for loading / unloading
Aganto provided 2 interlinked commercial canopies 15m wide producing an overall width of 30m. The structures were 15m long on a 6.2m eave height. Micro mesh walls were fixed to the back gable ends to ensure air could move freely through the structure and lighting was installed in each unit.
Protecting goods with a commercial canopy
“It is vital we keep freight dry when loading and unloading as damaged freight will not only incur costs but could lose customers. The commercial canopies supplied by Aganto were an extremely effective solution that met our needs perfectly at a low cost and with minimal disruption. As well as being able to keep the new area separate from our existing warehouse, we are also gaining value from previously un-used site space!”
