5 most popular machines for installing industrial shelving, storage & pallet racking

Covid has proven to be a game changer for the industrial and warehouse storage and racking industry. As more and more Australian businesses move to an online retail platform for product sales, there is a greater need for inventory storage and warehousing solutions. One of the biggest global online retailers Amazon has just reached $1.2 billion in it’s Australian sales and the building of more fulfilment centres yet to be completed.

Increasing the cubic capacity of your storage most likely involves maximising the vertical space available within the building for greater storage capacity and more efficient use. As an equipment hire supplier, Duralift had noticed a greater demand for certain equipment to facilitate the building of such complexes.
