Case study – Retailers double up


Transdek, the double-deck loading equipment supplier, is installing double-deck lifts at distribution centre and store level for both Boots and Tesco.

The modular design of the lifts allows for speedy install (under 1.5 days) and relocation. Transdek says it is now being asked to deliver on a promise of easy relocation and to move lifts between sites, once leases expire, as well as move them between bays on the same site, allowing for increased flexibility in warehouse reorganisation.

To date, Transdek has relocated over 25 lifts within clients’ distribution networks. Most recently, Transdek was able to remove a lift, including the entire loadhouse “pod” from a Bristol RDC in four hours, and re-install the equipment the following day at a Coatbridge DC, some 360 miles away in Scotland.
