Alfacon Solutions Sees Benefits of Adaptive Conveying as Warehouse Space Increases 2

According to Alfacon Solutions, with cost of warehouse space at its highest level ever, U.S. and Canada shippers looking to secure more warehouse and distribution space over the coming years should expect to pay more and have fewer choices.

Because adaptive conveying maximizes the use of space at a time when space is at a premium, the ability to use different line configuration based on shift, day of the week, time of the year is especially helpful. Because it also provides scalability, adaptive conveying modularity allows systems to be expanded or retracted very easily.

Adaptive conveying prepares for the future of conveying technology as modular systems allow new technology to be integrated easily into existing systems a small piece at a time while minimizing maintenance costs. Self-aware systems can provide maintenance warnings as well as in some cases make necessary adjustments to minimize maintenance and maximize productivity.

The dearth of available industrial space exists even though the construction and delivery of new properties is accelerating. Construction pipeline continues to grow, with a 39 percent increase over the year in build-to-suit properties. There is an estimated 300 million square feet of new industrial space slated for delivery nationwide in the coming months, which is a 12-year high. By 2019, almost 1.5 billion square feet of space will have been delivered over the previous five years.
