  • Gondola Skate, the world’s leading manufacturer of fixture mobilization systems for the retail and warehousing industries, invites select retailers to preview its next product, Bandit, during the 2019 Globalshop conference in Chicago at booth 5112. This system is the safest and fastest gondola mover ever developed by any company in this space.

    Designed to meet the needs of retailers with heavy merchandise, the Bandit enables customers to move gondolas very safely and efficiently. In fact, the product has been tested to move 88’ fully loaded gondolas in 15 minutes with as little as four employees and zero demerchandising.

    “As the pioneer and world leader in developing fixture mobilization systems, Gondola Skate is committed to engineering innovative products that help to shape the retail and warehousing industries and strives to exceed safety standards,” said Frank Charles Cozza…, CEO of Gondola Skate. “The Bandit does just that and is set to fundamentally change the way the retail industry thinks about fixture mobilization. The results of our initial trials are nothing less than revolutionary. We look forward to gaining more feedback with a select set of customers at this year’s conference.”

    In addition to the Bandit, the company will also be exhibiting its popular Rhino and Falcon series. The Rhino, developed in 2007, is the world’s first system designed to move pallet racking within a retail (e.g. Lowe’s, B&Q, Bunnings, etc.) and warehousing environment. The Falcon, designed for more common solid base gondola shelving with an adjustable foot, was developed in 2011. It’s presently the company’s most popular equipment solution globally.

    Warehouse automation for the holidays starts with
    optimized flexible space utilization
    roboticsandautomationnews.com/2019/06/10/warehouse-automation-for-the-holidays-starts-withoptimized-
    flexible-space-utilization/23483
    By Frank Charles Cozza, founder and CEO of Gondola Skate
    More square footage is not the only solution to maximizing space utilization; nor are
    second-level mezzanines. Even C-Suite executives, inclined to expand the DCs and
    warehouse footprint, quickly discover there is so little space availability.
    According to Jennifer Smith, the logistics reporter for the Wall Street Journal, the hunt for
    warehouse space in the US and abroad will not get any easier in the coming years.
    Smith reported that the availability of warehouse space fell to 7 percent in the fourth
    quarter of 2018, the lowest point since 2000, and real-estate brokerage CBRE Group said
    the tight capacity that has driven up the costs of warehousing in recent years will remain a
    challenge for companies for the remainder of 2019.

    CBRE reported that demand for distribution center and warehouse space exceeded supply
    by six million square feet by the end of 2018. That shortage of square footage warehouse
    space is expected to exceed 30 million square feet by the holiday season in 2019. Whether
    3PLs or new regional DCs (to accommodate the Amazon effect), there simply is not the
    space available.

    B2C changing market dynamics, increased technical complexity, and the unyielding
    pressure to do more with less, requires that warehouse and DC managers look to innovative
    solutions to make the most of the space they have (especially since adding square footage,
    if available, is prohibitively expensive).
    The final scheduling window to prepare for the upcoming holiday picking, packing, and
    shipping deadline is August 2019.

    The notion of a fixed warehouse is false
    All the warehouses and distribution centers (DCs) designed several years ago operated with
    the accounting principle that racks, bolted to the ground were a fixed asset.
    Now the ability to mobilize pallet racks of any type safely and easily, improves warehousing
    efficiency by as much as 70 percent.
    A customer-centric standard operating process ensures that productivity is maximized by
    customers such as Home Depot, Bed Bath & Beyond, Amazon and leaders across the globe
    who are reconfiguring racks within an existing space.
    In the distribution center, the capacity to move and re-arrange the layout to accommodate
    seasonality, results in space, time, and money saved. Portable distribution center racks can
    be easily moved to allow warehouse, DC, and 3PL operation managers to reconfigure
    storage and picking space when a change is needed. This usually occurs in the summer to
    prepare for holiday picking, packing, and shipping, and then again in January.
    For seasonal merchandise that needs to be stored for a few months, the ability to fill an area
    with racks stacked up to five racks high and with few (or no) aisles means that a tremendous
    amount of product can be stored in a small amount of space.
    Another advantage is the ability to load incoming product directly on the stack racks. This
    saves labor costs and handling time, and often reduces the need for wooden pallets in the
    operation.
    The current demand for flexible and dynamic warehousing solutions is greater than ever.
    The demand for reorganizing fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) to accommodate
    seasonality is substantial. The ability to move pallet racking units of any type in as little as
    fifteen minutes with as few as four employees, is the new definition of an “automated
    warehouse”.
    This rapid capacity and dynamic space utilization approach achieves the most significant
    cost savings and avoids disruption of warehouse productivity. The reconceived warehouse
    happens in a day, which literally defines the markets’ need for speed, savings, and safety in
    mobilization programs.
