Ahlsell Sweden have been undergoing a huge expansion for the past 3 years and invested tens of millons euros to build a high storage warehouse. For this new operation they needed a suitable and efficient load carrier.
While sorting automation has been key to improve operations, labour costs can still account for the majority of operating expenses, and often as much as 30% of space in every trailer is empty during transit.
Because flagship automated sorting systems are undeniably glamorous, it is easy to overlook the huge potential efficiency improvements that can be achieved by optimising manual handling operations and maximising cubic fill.
Loose loading of parcels between terminals is a very common way of operating within Postal – and for good reasons. As a large part of the overall logistics costs is tied to transportation, assuring the maximal cubic fill especially for long distances in trucks or containers is smart and cost efficient.
In addition to selling some of the most innovative containers in the market, K.Hartwall wants to help our customers lower the total cost of ownership of load carriers which is why we are introducing a brand new cloud-based Repair Data System.
The term “Loose load” describes the loading of cargo directly into a truck or container without the use of load carriers. Today, loose loading is widely used for both bulk transportation and parcels as it maximises truck fill. But see what PostNord has tested.
