DHL and encompasses three divisions: DHL Express, DHL Global
Forwarding, Freight and DHL Supply Chain.
DHL Project Story
The long and established partnership between LinkMisr and
DHL spans over 12 years. For expansion reasons, DHL Egypt
moved its warehousing premises to a more extensive location
on the Cairo/ Ismaillia Desert Road, 10th of Ramadan City.
Spreading over a vast area of
, DHL's new
warehouse gave room for growth, more flexibility and greater
accessibility. However, the move required an efficient and swift
disassembly of the existing racking system and moving it to the
new location. Not only was the move efficient and seamless, it
also proved the extreme durability of LinkMisr's products.
As part of the expansion assignment forwarded to
LinkMisr, it was requested that the designers would
reconfigure DHL's existing system as well as
complementing it and integrating it within a newer
storage design concept.
On tackling the assignment, LinkMisr put into
consideration all the client's requirements and
adapted the product solutions accordingly. Given the
nature of DHL's frame of work, it was essential that
LinkMisr allocates the ideal solutions ensuring the
utmost logistical features and benefits to DHL.
LinkMisr Solution & Benefits
To accommodate each of DHL's needs and requirements, LinkMisr
conceptualized and executed a shelving framework that constitutes
of four product variations. Together, Two-Tier EuroShelving, Wide
Aisle Pallet Racking, Drive-in Pallet Racking, and Satellite Storage
system, provide a comprehensive, all embracing storage solution.
Wide Aisle Pallet Racking
allows for fast and easy access to stored good, therefore avoiding situations
where access to one particular pallet is blocked. This is especially helpful,
effective and efficient in the case of DHL's work flow, which is characterized
by the rapid turnover of different types of stock at one time.
Two-Tier Euro Shelving
Installing a two-iered shelving structure greatly increases floor space and
utilizes maximum headroom.
LinkMisr advised DHL to have this product
installed to dismiss the need for an additional mezzanine floor.
On doing so, LinkMisr delivered the most cost effective solution possible
which deemed beneficial especially in the case of accommodating selective
product types and variable small items such as automotive spare parts.
Upon the successful installation of the above mentioned
products, DHL communicated to LinkMisr its need for
further storage solutions that will deliver high density pallet
Drive-in Pallet Racking
Upon DHL's request to accommodate additional storage solutions
that will answer to their need for a Last In First Out (LIFO) system,
LinkMisr recommended Drive-in Pallet Racking products. Using this
solution, DHL will effectively store pallets in different levels within a given
lane and with the same reference number, which are usually with slow
moving reference pallet and relatively shallower pallet capacity.
Satellite Storage System (Semi-Automated Radio Shuttle)
DHL was looking to reduce storing time, on a First In First Out
(FIFO) basis for a large number of storage references in a large
number of pallets into a depth reaching 40m. LinkMisr proposed
the semi-automated Satellite Storage System which perfectly fits
their requirements, since it operates using a mobile shuttle that
automatically moves the pallet from the entry position to the last
