About: the client

Eurofit, a leading tyre and wheel assembly partner for the automotive industry, is focused on delivering quality craftsmanship and expert service for the world’s biggest and most well-known automotive brands. 

Manufacturing is at the heart of Eurofit’s operation with automation fundamental to ensuring they deliver safe, efficient and innovative products to their clients.  Eurofit approached Joloda to explore options for a loading system that could handle a variety of non-standard loads for their factories in Europe to enable goods to be moved from the manufacturing plant to transportation vehicles.

About: the requirement

As part of their continuous investment programme, Eurofit wanted to upgrade the loading systems it uses to move tyres and wheel assemblies from the manufacturing plant into transport vehicles ready for distribution into their client’s production network.  Their existing system was carpet-based, with Eurofit looking for something that would offer enhanced efficiencies in both handling and loading.

The Joloda Automatic Trailer Loading Systems ticked every box.  In particular the Moving Floor System, as this is designed to move a variety of goods including crate-based, palletised and non-palletised, making it ideal for the movement of tyres.  It is a heavy-duty flexible slat conveyor belt system that allows Eurofit to use both production line conveyors and forklifts to place its tyres and wheels onto the belt ready for movement.

Eurofit specifically required an automated system that would reduce their reliance on human intervention whilst offering greater safety features when the system did need to be manned.  The Joloda Automatic Trailer Loading systems offer these benefits, and with a load/unload time of less than two minutes, it also created opportunities for operational efficiencies.

About: the product

Joloda has commissioned three Eurofit sites across Germany and Spain with automatic loading systems, including one with a bespoke specification to ensure the products delivered to their client’s requirements.

  • South Germany - Trailerskate loading dock shuttle: enabling manual unloading with a fork-lift truck from the side. This was adapted with a special hydraulic lift for sideways loading of the trailerskate dock


  • Zaragoza Spain - Moving Floor Loading dock shuttle: supporting the movement of TWAs (tire and wheel assemblies) and 360degree MF trailer systems


  • Palencia Spain - Moving Floor Loading dock shuttle: helping move TWAs (tire and wheel assemblies) along with 3 Moving Floor systems: offering 180degree movement and loading


About: the result

Following the successful installation of the first Joloda Automatic Trailer Loading system in Eurofit’s factory in South Germany in 2020, Joloda was instantaneously asked to deliver a further two systems in Spain, with more in the pipeline.
