It’s a grind at Hams Hall

TNT Logistics [now renamed Ceva] has re-ground its floors at its Hams Hall distribution centre bringing it into line with the TR34 DM2 flatness standard. Concrete Grinding completed the work and TNT has installed VNA racking to provide 2,000 more pallet spaces.

The warehouse is the UK national distribution centre for Chubb Fire which needed to stock 35 per cent more equipment than before and also accommodate a production facility in the building. Stock had previously been stored on racking in a wide-aisle format.

TNT designed a new racking layout with half the storage being VNA and half wide-aisle. Following a profileograph survey six 60-metre-long aisles were ground to TR34 DM2 standard with Concrete Grinding’s Laser-Grinder machine.
