Midwest Book Depository chooses WPSS for freight advantage and versatility 

Before opening a 2.4 million square foot distribution center, it was critical for one book depository business to find the right equipment to leverage overhead space, de-clutter inventory, and create a more intuitive system of classification and categorization for tens of thousands of books and records.  Considering many industrial shelving manufacturers, recent bottlenecks and delays in orders, they were having trouble finding a shelving solution that could be delivered within their timeframe. And quick turnaround was top priority.

WPSS had the freight advantage and material means to expedite the manufacturing and shipping process. To accommodate the inventory, WPSS built a Deluxe Multi-level Shelving System with an unprecedented seven levels and over 4,000 high bays — allowing the end-user to greatly expand useable space and create individualized sections for streamlined sorting and storage.

Made with lite gauge steel, Deluxe shelving sustains heavy loads and high-density applications, and can securely hold and lock in place a large number of items in each
shelving compartment.

Deluxe shelving is also versatile. At the end-users request, installers easily changed shelf heights and positions, without compromising stability or load capacity. And owing to Deluxe’s 1” vertical shelf adjustability, the end-user modified the compartment’s dimensions to fit diverse and ever-changing storage needs.

Importantly, this impressive structure was delivered in their timeframe, as promised. With such an unrivaled turnaround time and quality engineering, the end-user made a second investment in an identical Deluxe system for their Texas facility.

With WPSS, the book depository was able to procure the total package: quality industrial shelving, delivered on time. If you are looking to optimize your storage space and create coherence in your warehousing — on your schedule — contact your local WPSS representatives today.
