BITO‘s installation at Formica Group has been nominated for two major logistics awards. BITO is one of three finalists for this project in the ‘Warehouse Operations’ category of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) Annual Awards for Excellence. The winner will be announced at the prestigious ceremony to be held at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London on 17 October 2019.
Before that, winners of The Logistics Awards 2019 will be announced on 26 September at the ceremony being held at The Vox, Resorts World, Birmingham. Formica has been named as a finalist in ‘New Facility (under 150,000 sq ft)’ category.
This multi-nominated project features BITO racking and live storage roller tracks successfully meeting the needs of Formica Group’s intermediate warehouse at its North Shields production facility. Creating 60% more storage locations for sheets of treated Decor paper used in the formation of Formica® laminate products, the racking also keeps the sheets protected, makes order picking easier and helps minimise lead time for Formica Group’s customers.
