Absolute Storage design, supply and install pallet racking systems in Footscray and across Melbourne. We have been in partnership with SSI Schaefer for over 20 years, successfully installing the worlds leading Pallet Racking systems and servicing existing Pallet Racking installations across Melbourne.
Pallet racking is the most widely used storage solution for palletised stock. Our wide variety of pallet racking systems provides for many versatile configurations.
Pallet Shelving Systems are used to store pallets which are usually accessed by fork Lift trucks or picking cranes.
The quantity and size of pallets, combined with the level of access required will determine which type of pallet racking is selected.
New and second-hand pallet racking is also available.
While many factories and warehouses are still to be found in and around the suburb of Footscray, many former industrial sites are being transformed into modern housing estates. Perhaps the largest of these is the former Footscray Ammunition Factory in a prime elevated position overlooking the banks of the Maribyrnong River with views across to Flemington Racecourse and the Melbourne city centre.
The eastern portion of Footscray, in the fork between the Yarra River and Maribyrnong River, contains railway yards, Appleton and Swanson Docks which were the site of the 1998 Australian waterfront dispute and the Melbourne Wholesale Fruit and Vegetable Market. The market houses 400 businesses, employs 3000 people and supplies 60 per cent of Victoria’s fresh produce, it is due to move to Epping in 2013–14. In 2005, the State Government announced the closure of the Melbourne Wholesale Fruit and Vegetable Market to make way for an extensive redevelopment of the Port of Melbourne and the construction of new freight rail links to the area.
