How to solve the e-commerce storage challenge

Where will your business find the storage space it needs?

With online sales forecast to increase another 14% in 2022[1], after already astonishing growth during the Covid pandemic, e-commerce retailers, distributors and logistics firms will be handling more orders than ever.

The cost-effective answer is to install a mezzanine to make the best use possible of space you already have, rather than the expensive and time-consuming option of hunting for new premises.

Mezzanine floors offer storage space for whatever you need: bulk storage for pallets or racks stacked with smaller items; seasonal inventory you will not need for six months, or items that fly off the shelves every day.

Protection from supply-chain crises

With mezzanine storage you can hold additional stock so that your business is protected from supply-chain disruption, giving you more control than competitors relying on a just-in-time approach that may leave them short.

With extra storage you can be sure to meet customers’ deadlines without worrying about staff or logistics crises hitting your suppliers.

This is pivotal to your business growth, because retail analysts are predicting that by 2025 organisations offering a frictionless customer journey will see at least a 20% uplift in total revenue[2]

High quality and competitive pricing

Hi-Level Mezzanines provides mezzanine floors of the highest quality in the industry, yet remaining competitively priced thanks to the expertise of our team of qualified structural engineers, innovative digital design process and advanced solutions.

For 30 years we have been creating space for amazing things to happen.

We can engineer a mezzanine to provide pallet storage on top and shelving/racking storage beneath. These pictures show a huge quantity of space below the mezzanine for racking, conveyors and robots, and more than enough space for a sea of pallets on the mezzanine itself.

Alternatively you can place bulkier and larger items on the ground, with racking/shelving installed on the mezzanine. The example below shows what we engineered for an international client with a new distribution centre in the Midlands. We designed a 17,000m2 mezzanine that is 7m above the ground to maximise the storage capability for retail stock in the warehouse

Future-proofed flexibility

The result is a flexible space that will cover current and future customer purchasing demands.

The alternatives are to attempt to pack more onto a ground floor, wasting the space above that your business is nevertheless paying for, or to rent additional premises at higher cost. Neither offers the future-proofed flexibility of extra space on site that can be converted into offices or a productive facility as your company grows.

Our clients include:

  • Transport firms
  • Logistics and 3PL (third-party logistics) providers
  • Retailers (both High Street and e-commerce)
  • The big grocers

We have also supplied storage mezzanines for sectors as varied as pharmaceuticals, motorsports and technology.

Our structural engineers are highly experienced and able to design solutions to withstand any load or usage requirement, including heavy conveyor systems and robotic machinery.

Hi-Level Mezzanines has the expertise for the longevity, durability and safety of mezzanine solutions to fit your requirements.
