One of the most crucial ingredients in the materials handling industry is the safe transportation of packaged goods from origin to destination. Logistics operators in a wide variety of industries need to be confident that their products arrive in the best condition possible to minimise delays and ensure customer satisfaction.
To facilitate the safe transportation of packaged goods, Abzac Romania produces cardboard accessories suitable for a wide range of applications. All of the solutions Abzac Romania produces begin as large cardboard coils, delivered to their warehouse in Ploiesti, Romania. The company handles between 20-25 cardboard coils per day, working in two shifts between 07:00 and 24:00. To maintain its high productivity, Abzac Romania required a materials handling solution that could maximise its heavy duty application. Operator and equipment efficiency was also a key concern, as well as keeping downtime of the materials handling equipment at a minimum.
Customisation improves handling efficiency
To find a solution perfectly suited to their needs, Abzac Romania consulted Vectra Eurolift Service. Vectra Eurolift Service has been the exclusive dealer of Yale® solutions in Romania since 2015 and is the sole service provider of Yale products in the region.
Vectra Eurolift Service recommended the four-wheel Yale ERP35VL electric counterbalance truck, fitted with a 360-degree rotating clamp that ensures excellent pallet visibility. The customised solution allows Abzac Romania to transfer the cardboard coils directly from the trailer to the production area without the need to switch materials handling equipment.
Logistics expertise goes a long way
Working closely with the client to understand their business is a key factor in ensuring both customer satisfaction, and perfecting the right solution. Vectra Eurolift Services was able to use its wealth of experience in the materials handling industry to advise Abzac on the solution and customisation that best fit the company’s needs.
“The main reasons why Abzac Romania chose Yale equipment were for Vectra Eurolift Service’s experience in this field, good communication, and accurate understanding of the application,” said Delia Dumitru, Plant Manager of Abzac Romania.
