Block Storage

What is a Block Storage?

A block storage is a warehouse in which stackable boxes, cartons, pallets or wired mesh pallets are stacked directly on top or next to each other in blocks without shelves or any equipment.

Usually, identical articles are stored in the block storage area per storage line in order to enable direct access to each type of product. Pallets without superstructures are enough for stable and pressure-insensitive goods On the other hand, superstructures or box pallets are required for unstable and pressure-sensitive goods.

The block storage system is comparatively inexpensive and can be changed at any time due to its variability. In addition, inventory management is relatively easy. The goods that are excellently suited for block storage include barrels, tyres or beverage crates.
