Decathlon goes for Edmolift

Decathlon Sports has installed Edmolift model TT3000WS lorry loaders to handle goods movement for its superstores across the country.

The lifts are designed to be suitable for all manner of delivery vehicles from a Transit van to an articulated or double deck trailer. The lift is safe to use with no special training or licence being required and nine roll cages can be off loaded in a single movement saving time for these extremely busy retail park stores.

Decathlon has 10 UK stores all operating Edmolift lorry loaders with more stores planned for the near future.

Superdrug’ s Croydon distribution centre has replaced two conventional ramped docked levellers with two dock double deck lorry loaders with a 6,000kg capacity from Edmolift.

Greater versatility is provided by the lifts which have a platform suitable to handle 12 roll cages, the complete installation took just two days.

The Co-op has also chosen Edmolift to provide low profile lift tables for night deliveries to its convenience stores around the country.

Roll cages are deposited in secure areas overnight and then transferred to loading bay and store level using the lift table during open hours.
