Storage of Food Processing Machines

Secure internal storage and export packing services for food processing machinery for a machinery dealer.

Customer Profile: A leading dealer of food production machinery

Project outline:
  Our client required interim storage for recently acquired production lines prior to onward sale. We were able to provide a flexible storage solution within our 80,000 sqft warehouse facility near Nottingham.

Project detail:
Various food processing and packaging lines arrived at Merritts on third-party transport. We offloaded the items into our secure storage facility using overhead craneage and forklift trucks.

Each item was inspected and logged into our warehouse management system. Our warehouse personnel completed an assessment of the equipment’s condition and forwarded this, along with photographic records, to the client.

The equipment remained in store until sold. Merritts were then instructed to deliver the goods to the buyer or load onto others transport.

For items destined to overseas buyers, Merritts provided a full export packing service and loaded the equipment into 40ft containers, ready to be shipped.
