A Trio of industrial loading bay canopies delivered

Due to huge demand for Click and Collect and the associated warehouse requirements, a designated structure to fulfill click and collect ordered was required, separate to the main store.  The new temporary warehouse makes efficient use of space on an unused area of tarmac.

Loading Bay Canopies

The Requirement

Freight forwarding, logistics and fulfilment is a fast-moving environment; every second counts to ensure efficient and safe transfer of goods. The client required a set of three loading bay canopies, in various sizes, to protect stock and staff during loading and unloading operations. The canopies were designed to reduce the risk of losing valuable stock to weather damage, with seamless integration into existing buildings and minimal groundworks.

The Solutions

Field & Lawn provided three new loading bay canopies for Oak Furniture Land, giving a combined covered space of 1488m2. All the canopies were covered with Challenger High Lumen 50w flood lights to enable around the clock loading and unloading, improving efficiency for the client.
