Loading and unloading containers is a common process in factories, construction sites and other industrial environments. A forklift is a familiar vehicle in the warehouse to carry out the lifting of heavy loads and manage stock storage.
However, many warehouse accidents are caused by forklifts. The average weight of a forklift can reach up to 9,000 pounds, which is thrice the size of a medium-sized automobile. Because of its weight and reach, forklifts can tip over, causing accidents and injuries. Although there are numerous hazards with operating forklifts, the four main areas of concern involve the use of attachments, such as clamps; operating in areas where pedestrians are present; the work environment, including uneven flooring and poor ventilation; the load.
At Joloda, we supply safer, more efficient equipment to suit your container transport needs: Container Loading Systems.
Safer Warehouse Operations
Joloda offers two types of Container Systems: Container Loading and Container Lifting. The Container Loading System is a manual loader that contains a floor-level loading platform for seamless linking with container vans that are fitted with manual skate and track systems. The Container Lifting System, on the other hand, is an automatic system that utilises electro-hydraulics to lift container vans as heavy as 35 tonnes.
A Large Improvement in Production
Container Systems ensure an overall improvement in warehouse operations by:
- Making one-man operations possible
- Increasing efficiency while keeping operational costs to a minimum
- Boosting truck and container turnaround rates
- Reducing or eliminating the need for forklifts
- Minimising the maintenance costs
Joloda also holds training sessions designed to equip agents with the ability to manage container loading equipment. The training includes assembly of the equipment, operation, and maintaining the hydraulic pump. This reduces the need for endless customer service calls and gives agents the confidence to sell the equipment themselves.
