How to solve warehouse space problems in the UK

Why has the need for space in a warehouse distribution centre increased?

Since 2020, a lot of retail companies have started selling online and warehouse distribution centres are now facing a surge in demand for efficient storage for retailers, eCommerce businesses, and businesses that do a mix of both.

The number of people buying online soared during the COVID-19 pandemic and, in March 2020, 41% of people were buying more online than previously, but by February 2021 that number had boosted dramatically to 71%.  Now, in the UK, over 80% of the population make e-commerce purchases. In other words, four in five UK consumers buy online.

Solving warehouse space challenges with Lödige

At Lödige, when a customer became increasingly frustrated with ongoing delays caused by an unreliable commercial lift and wanted a new system put into place. The lift needed to move heavy items between floors with 2 stops in a busy warehouse easily and safely. They decided on a SHERPA system, with a goods only lift from Lödige which are flexible in that they can be installed in new or existing layouts.

Another client needed more stops - 5 stops over a distance of 15 metres that can move 2,000kg at a time. On this project the customer needed both goods only and with attendant lift, so used one SHERPA goods only lift, and one Escorta goods with attendant lift.
