RD, a Brazilian pharmaceutical company which sells online and offline, will install pallet racks from Mecalux in its Guarulhos (Sao Paulo) warehouse. With this solution, the company can efficiently house products of different sizes, weights and packaging.
The warehouse will be split into two areas, both managed with selective pallet racks. The versatility this system offers will allow the company to adapt the racks to the diverse variety of goods (i.e. different heights, weights, etc.) with which RD works. A large portion of the racks will be single-depth racks, although some aisles will also be installed with double-depth racks.

“We went through bidding rounds with various suppliers and the solution Mecalux offered was the one that showed the best cost-benefit ratio. This is our first Mecalux installation, so we are eagerly awaiting its completion to start using it and so we can witness the benefits of the system first-hand.”
