Pragati Warehousing: Grade-A Warehouses Designed to Support Automation

Projects Director,  Pragati Warehousing
"Grade-A warehouses are reshaping the logistics landscape through their advanced infrastructure with access to automation technologies and solutions for the occupier."

Sudhakar Chauhan- Projects Director, Pragati Warehousing.

The logistics and warehousing sectors have witnessed a dramatic shift in recent years, transitioning from manual processes to automation powered by robotics, AI, and advanced data analytics. This has boosted operational efficiency, accuracy, and productivity. Playing a crucial role in this transformation are the Grade-A industrial and logistics parks that are offering the following facilities designed to integrate the latest automation technologies.

The logistics and warehousing sectors

FM2 Flooring: FM2 flooring, crucial to Grade-A warehouses, is engineered to facilitate smooth movement of bots and automated guided vehicles (AGVs). This specialized flooring minimizes friction and wear, optimizing the performance of automation systems and streamlining workflow. FM2 flooring can significantly reduce downtime caused by maintenance and repairs, and maximize productivity within the warehouse.

Large Bay Spaces: A distinguishing feature of Grade-A warehouses is their spacious column-to-column design, which facilitates easier movement of automated machinery and equipment. Unlike traditional warehouses with constrained layouts, Grade-A facilities offer ample space for unrestricted manoeuvrability, allowing for efficient deployment of automated storage and retrieval systems and robots. This optimized layout enhances safety within the warehouse while maximizing operational efficiency.

The logistics and warehousing sectors

Ample Clear Height: Vertical storage solutions such as tall racks and shelving systems benefit from the additional height, maximizing storage capacity. Automated material handling systems like robotic drones, forklifts, and electrical cranes can efficiently navigate the vertical space for various tasks such as picking, packing, inventory management, and transportation of goods to and from elevated storage areas. Ample vertical space supports the deployment of overhead cranes and other lifting equipment, essential for handling heavy loads with precision and safety.

Better Support Infrastructure: Grade-A logistics parks are planned better for high-density traffic movement and consequent throughput of goods. Wider roads, well-designed aprons, higher numbers of loading and unloading docks, cross-docking layouts, and well-planned EV charging infrastructure are among the key features that help in smooth and optimized logistics operations within Grade-A facilities. Plus, Grade-A logistics parks are built with better materials, technologies, and processes to withstand and minimize disruptions caused by the environment, effectively aiding investments in warehouse automation by the occupier.

The logistics and warehousing sectors

Scalability:
The inherent scalability offered in Grade-A industrial and logistics parks ensures that businesses can adapt to the fast-evolving automation trends. Grade-A spaces provide a versatile platform for experimentation and innovation. This agility is crucial in an era where technological advancements occur at an unprecedented pace, empowering businesses to stay ahead of the curve and drive continuous improvement in logistics and warehouse operations.

Ranjit Kumar, National Head of Leasing, Pragati said, “Pragati’s outlook as a developer of Grade-A logistics parks is to provide the best structures and facilities for its customers. We have always strived to offer higher standards in terms of building and park level specifications. All our parks have been designed to enable automation and even if there are automation requirements that need us to implement design changes during the occupancy of a customer, we work with the customer to enable that as well.”

Grade-A warehouses will continue to play a pivotal role in supporting emerging automation technologies, thereby further enhancing efficiency, productivity, and competitiveness in the logistics industry.
