Whether you are updating or building a new warehouse, installation is that vital step that brings every area of the warehouse to life.

Some installations can be straight forward, such as simple conveyors, racks, security cages, and other equipment. Others may require a full systems integration team to power a fully automated or conveyor system.

Whatever it may be, your installation process is an important part of material handling.

Installation Process

The installation process is based on: 

  • Agreements being signed between the business and the warehouse supplier 
  • Blueprints being finalized that document the engineering and design
  • Equipment being ordered 
  • Project lead and team being assigned 
  • Project timeline being confirmed

Installed equipment may include: 

  • Overhead cranes 
  • Racking 
  • Conveyors 
  • Storage Automation
  • Dock & Door Equipment

The installation team may consist of: 

  • Ten or more vehicles 
  • Up to 20 installers

Many material handling suppliers and companies will hire out third-party installation teams to get the job done. This is typical and usually isn’t a concern, but it doesn’t hurt to inquire about their experience and tenure.

Make sure they are well trained in whatever you’re installing, whether it be a mezzanine system, pallet racking, wire partition, or an integrated solution of several equipment components.
