Create an efficient flow of goods with the right Pallet Racking System

Almost all companies need product storage at some point in the logistics process between manufacturer and supply to the end user, customer ie handling, transport and storage, and that is precisely where Constructor are the experts.

 The backbone for all of our pallet systems is a Pallet Racking system called P90 and depending on what the pallets are loaded with plus your requirements and conditions, we can adapt that storage system according to your very specific needs.
