Rousseau Solution for Crescent Towing

Crescent Towing is responsible for running the harbor assist tugs that tie up the ships at the Port of Savannah, one of the busiest in the country. It’s imperative that they keep their tugs in top running order, 24/7. So, you can imagine that having an accurate, well-organized, and efficient inventory is very important to their success. In their warehouse they had installed a self-supporting, shelf mezzanine system. This is a very inexpensive way to maximize your storage capacity by taking advantage of your overhead space. However, when it comes to smaller parts and basic inventory control, “drawers-in shelving” is the optimum solution. In an ongoing project, Q Material Handling was able to install Rousseau’s modular drawers into our competitor’s shelving. I could go on and present the math of how this would improve their inventory system, but these pictures do a much better job:

With two banks of drawers consisting of eight 3″ drawers and four 6″ drawers, we were able to open up five shelving units.
