What Is The Standard Retail Shelf Height?

A store having an appropriate number of shelves with proper height, color contrast, and distance creates a positive image of the store before customers.

The Best Packaging of Tegometall Shelving Solution

Loading And Packaging of Tegometall Shelving

Every year, RedSheep exports hundreds of containers around the world. The majority of them are transported by marine vessels, with some freight being delivered by train. Sea freight has increased dramatically in the last two years as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. When compared to the cost of sea freight, the difference is significant. Many customers do not like the sudden increase. The increased prices have made it necessary to consider sea freight when making an international purchase. Customers are becoming a habit of asking for sea freight and calculating the CIF prices before confirming the orders.

It seems like a high investment for low profits due to the high sea freight. To deal with such issues RedSheep is continuously working to improve its packaging and loading plan for containers. We are doing our best to come up with plans to save maximum container space to load maximum goods in a single container. It helps reduce the number of containers which eventually reduces the cost of transportation. For example, RedSheep loaded 15 containers of standard Tego shelving recently.
