Automated Loading Systems


A factory producing 928 pallets per day, shuttling 32 pallets each time across a 27km/16 mile journey (which we’d expect to take would take 45 minutes each away/90 minutes round trip in today’s typical congested traffic conditions) would require:

  • 3 x Warehouse forklift drivers
  • 12 x Truck drivers (working across 3 x 8-hour shifts in a 24-hour period) and;
  • 3 x Factory forklift drivers

However, with an automated loading solution in place in both the factory, the warehouse and the trailers moving the same number of palletised loads would require:

  • 0 x Warehouse forklift drivers
  • 6 x Truck drivers (working across 3 x 8-hour shifts in a 24-hour period) and;
  • 0 x Factory forklift drivers
