Warehousing and packaging, transportation, loading and unloading, sorting, and information management are the six basic functions of logistics. Shelves are one of the main facilities for warehousing. It can be said that the shelf is an indispensable part of the modern industrial warehouse, logistics center and distribution center.
The storage shelf is mainly distinguished from the supermarket shelf. In addition to the storage function, the supermarket shelf has another important function, which is the display effect. Its height is usually based on the height of the person, so most supermarket shelves are more focused on structural planning below 3 meters.
Compared with supermarket shelves, storage shelves are generally used in industrial warehouses, with more emphasis on upward development, making full use of storage space, and the height can reach more than 40 meters. The planning of large logistics centers can be a library-integrated structure, that is, the shelf part is built first. The shelf is the supporting structure of the building, and the building structure is built afterwards, such as the wall and the roof.
The point is to store, make the most of space and another important function – the way to quickly handle the storage shelves of goods. The two shelves have different functions and structures, and the production process is also very different.
