The order fulfillment process is a vital step in the supply chain and loading goods is an essential component of it. In an effort to optimize this normally tedious process, SmartTEH has introduced a new container loading system capable of loading a containers worth of goods in one smooth movement.
For businesses that ship container loads regularly, the method by which they perform this process can vary. However, it often involves a series of many complex activities and logistics centers and warehouses have an enormous amount of orders to fulfill. Employees usually prepare orders with the help of equipment and tools and often these practices are not the most forgiving, especially when handling heavy and bulky items.
The operation can become a slow, cumbersome and inefficient task to overcome. On top of that, it uses non-specific equipment and tools such as forklifts. The process suffers the risk of increasing the down time, reducing service levels, and reducing customer satisfaction.
To overcome the possibility of these risks, SmartTEH has created a series of effective loading solutions, which contributes to improving warehousing practices by introducing specifically designed machinery. The container loading system specifically is focused on swiftly loading goods into containers. It consists of a moving plate, capable of sliding within the space of the containers. The system is driven by an electric or hydraulic motor. The system contains a set of legs that ensures the container is level. There are also clamps to ensure the fixation of the coupled platform-container structures. There is a board panel or a remote control device to control the system.
SmartTEH says the system enhances throughput time, labor productivity and general efficiency. There are immediate operational improvements, in comparison to the traditional loading process.
