FAQ

Common questions
What are storage systems?

Storage systems are structures that have the function of organizing the raw materials and/or finished products in a warehouse. They are also used to verticalize stocks, allowing to increase the storage area. The operation of these systems can be done through handling equipment or even manually, depending on the characteristics of each operation.

WHEN TO STORE PRODUCTS?

Storage solutions allow you to keep raw materials and supplies, as well as work in process or finished products, out of the supply chain until they are needed.

In general, there are three types of storage: supply storage, buffer storage, and distribution storage.

WHAT IS BUFFER STORAGE?

Storage of raw materials, supplies, work in process or finished products for a short time.

WHAT IS MATERIAL FLOW?

It regards all manual or automated movement of goods and products related to its acquisition, production and distribution. If a material flow connects more than one participant, a supply chain is created. This supply chain must be managed to generate value to the customer.

Improvements in material storage/flow lead to: reduced costs, faster shipping, reduced energy consumption, reduced product damage, better working conditions, reduced environmental damage.

HOW TO PLAN A WAREHOUSE?

Several factors need to be taken into account, such as planned use of the storage area, material flow/forklift routes, smart use of space, and efficient workstations. With an efficient planning, the layout always takes into account future changes, expansions of demand and built area. Some examples of criteria that help to choose the type of structure are the range of products stored and the stock turnover frequency.

WHAT IS PRODUCT RANGE?

The stored products can be classified into three categories: A, B, and C. Type A products have the highest stock turnover frequency. Type C products have the lowest stock turnover frequency. This indicates that all items should be stored in such a way that allows efficient access at any time, according to their picking frequency.

WHAT IS STOCK TURNOVER?

Stock turnover frequency represents the ratio between the number of items stored and the number of items required. This relationship indicates how many times the demand for an item can be met, according to the current inventory. The quantity to be stored is calculated from the item demand and a safety stock.

WHAT IS PBR PALLET?

The PBR pallet, or Brazilian Pallet, is defined by a series of criteria established by the Brazilian Association of Supermarkets, ABRAS, to make the product safer, more convenient and sustainable for the supply chain.

Some of the regulations of this pallet model include being made of wood, with dimensions of 1000 x 1200 mm. Further information may be found with the regulatory agency.

WHAT IS THE FIFO SYSTEM?

First In First Out. It is a storage logic widely used for the storage of perishable products. This model brings the possibility of removing first from the structure the items that were purchased or produced first. Bertolini Sistemas de Armazenagem provides FIFO systems such as Live-storage, Drive Through and others.

WHAT IS LIFO SYSTEM?

Last In First Out. This is a storage logic through which the goods produced and stored last are the first to be sold and removed from the structure. Bertolini Sistemas de Armazenagem provides LIFO systems such as Drive-in racking, Push Back racking and others.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I PROTECT MY STRUCTURE?

In accordance with NBR 15524-2:2007, the following criteria apply to the inspections of storage structures:

a) Daily inspection: Can be performed by trained internal staff to detect easily visible anomalies such as bent stringers or posts due to use;

b) Weekly inspection: Can be performed by internal staff trained to check the verticality and straightness of the structure and all elements of the 1st and 2nd levels, with notification, qualification and communication of the damages;

c) Monthly inspection: Can be performed by trained internal staff that must verify, in addition to the verticality of the installation of all levels, general aspects of order and cleanliness, with notification, qualification and communication of damages. Bertolini Sistemas de Armazenagem can provide support in such cases, please contact us;

d) Annual inspection: performed by the user’s or manufacturer’s technical personnel who must check all of the above with notification, qualification and communication of damages;
