Whether you are a wholesaler or a distribution center, maximizing your space and saving money tops your list to increase profitability. Over the years Barpro has increased the storage capacity of several companies and improved their efficiency through:

  • Minimizing the amount of land needed for a warehouse
  • Minimizing the size and investment in a warehouse project
  • Consolidating all storage into one warehouse
  • Releasing warehouse storage capacity for other uses without extending the building, while maintaining the same storage capacity
  • Improving accessibility to goods without sacrificing storage capacity
  • Offering a real alternative to warehouse relocation

With this said, Barpro has integrated an alternative solution for companies to plan for expansions as the need arises. This flexible option allows you to install mobile rails & mobile-ready racking to which mobile bases can be retrofitted when required at operating temperatures.

Let’s look at a case study of one of our existing clients as an example:


A well-known meat wholesaler required additional space within their existing freezer facility.

The 1700m² space had a capacity of approximately 1920 pallets on selective fixed racking. The objective of the project was to increase the pallet positions with a mobile racking solution. A new floor was installed together with 4 Barpro mobiles increasing the capacity to about 2555 pallets.

1: Supply and installation of rails and support stools on a new floor at the existing premises

In this instance, the racks were installed on a new floor. Overlay floors on top of existing floors can also be considered.

2: Supply and installation of 4 mobile bases with wooden bumper protection & individual control system

In 2023 the customer purchased 2 additional mobile bases to be installed on the existing rails at operating temperatures. This increased total capacity to approximately 2877 pallets.

The potential pallet capacity of the store with 12 mobiles is 3983 pallets.

Let Barpro provide you with a cost-effective solution to increase your storage capacity with our various options. Contact our sales team:
