Case Study Info

Date comissioned: October 2013 Client: AB Oxford Cold Storage Location: Melbourne, Australia Category: Cold Storage | Farms | STORAX Mobile System Pallet Specification: Storage: 7658 pallets (1170w x 1170d x 1200h x 1000kg)

Oxford Cold Storage is one of Australia’s leading providers of third-party, temperature-controlled warehousing. Oxford approached Barpro Storage in 2012 for a custom mobile solution to be installed in their new cold-storage facility in 2013.

The challenge with this project lay in the fact that the storage facility was being built with a post-tensioned floor slab, and would be using an Australian standard pallet size that didn’t fit the typical STORAX rack. The electrical wiring also needed to comply with strict Australian standards and wiring regulations, which meant all electrical installations would need to be cleared by local consultants.

Together with Dematic – an Australian rack company – Barpro designed and installed a customised storage system that complied with all the client’s requirements.


“While the mobile racking system is more expensive than static pallet racking, the additional storage capacity the system provides will enable an acceptable return on investment”
