What is Steel Racking?
To keep it simple, steel racking provides strength to ship and protect an item during travel. Due to their strength and durability, steel racks are designed for large and heavy items. These features make steel racks the most efficient way to transport automotive parts safely and efficiently. Automotive parts that utilize steel racks include sheet metal, general assemblies, tires, engines, transmissions, etc.
TriEnda provides custom-designed steel racks for the automotive industry. With TriEnda’s extensive design and engineering capabilities, we create solutions for the automotive material handling industry.
Steel Racking Industries
Automotive is a very popular industry that uses steel racks. This is due to the size and weight of the products they are shipping. However, there are many other industries that can experience the benefits of steel racks as well. Some of these industries include agriculture, construction, railroad, aerospace, bakery, medical, industrial equipment, and many more.
Similar to the automotive industry; the agriculture, construction, and aerospace industries are continuously shipping large, heavy equipment. The equipment involved in these industries is very expensive. Steel racking provides a heavy duty and durable solution to ensure these expensive parts are being handled with the best care. Steel racks allow companies to feel confident knowing their products will be protected and safe during shipping.
Metal racking provides benefits outside of just protecting and shipping loads. Industries like medical and bakery use steel racks for organization, storing supplies, and easily transporting products around the facility. Metal racks are highly used in these industries because they provide an efficient and sanitary solution.
