Conveyor halves unloading times

Office product supplier Office Depot has invested in a special telescopic boom conveyor and several other products from Caljan Rite-Hite for its facility in Ashton Under Lyne, Manchester.

The Man Rider Telescopic Boom has a platform which is used by one or two operators for the manual handling of all types of loads. Office Depot uses its new conveyor to unload office chairs from its vehicles. Easy to operate due to its ergonomic design, the machine decreases unloading time by up to 50%.

Office Depot has also invested in a telescopic unloader and five telescopic loaders with rotary bearings for 180 degree movement, enabling one telescopic loader to service more than one loading dock. These are used for unloading and loading the company’s delivery vehicles.

Bernd Schiel, project manager the Office Depot, comments: “The new Man Rider and telescopic loaders and unloaders have provided a much safer environment for our people operating in the despatch and receiving area, as well as maintaining the flexibility required for these operations.”
