Postnord Logistic: An effective workflow
The logistics sector is thriving, requiring the facilities and processes to work smarter and faster as the number of packages and boxes only seems to rise. Postnord has continuously invested in its logistics workflow with smart lifting solutions from TAWI in almost all of its terminals for the last 15 years.
TAWI lifting solutions at Postnord
They currently have thirteen TAWI lifting solutions installed in their distribution terminal in Jönköping, Sweden, in different spots where parcels must be handled quickly and easily. About half of the installed lifters are different variants of the High-Frequency Lifter and the Telescopic Mounted Unloader.
Why choose the lifting equipment from TAWI?
The most important aspects for PostNord when choosing supplier and type of lifting equipment is the ease of use and safety, says Jonatan Floss, Service Engineer at PostNord. He has over ten years of experience within the organisation, working with unloading parcels using vacuum lifters and container unloader solutions. Then continued his career as a service engineer.
“It makes a huge difference using the vacuum lifters, especially for the arms and shoulders. You have more energy at the end of the shift.”
The industry serves continuously fast, and it’s common to have a high staff turnover. Regularly onboarding new team members requires the equipment used within the terminals to be user-friendly and easy to learn – where the TAWI lifting equipment checks the boxes. Being easy to manoeuvre and learn eases the onboarding and training of new employees. Additionally, it encourages the workers to use the equipment – which, in the results in fewer reports of sick leave caused by strain injuries due to the heavy and repetitive lifting.
The vacuum lifters open the workforce and encourage anyone to do tasks previously limited to only the strongest staff members. Anyone can now work with parcel handling, making the recruitment process easier and faster.
The logistics industry is constantly changing and adapting to the rapid growth of technology and the need to conserve the environment. For any business to stay ahead of the curve and remain competitive in these times, it must be flexible enough to accommodate the latest technological advancements, new processes, and strategies to succeed. Logistics technology will continue to expand and grow, making the logistics industry more agile and reliable. Here are some top trends to watch in 2023 that will shape the future of the logistics industry.
Container unloading is one of the few remaining labour-intensive aspects of the modern economy. Thanks to the range of items and the cramped spaces in which they are packed, the only processes that are still manual in logistics are the loading and unloading of these big steel crates.
And yet, with the boom in e-commerce, the supply chain is flooded like never before by containers crammed with consumer goods.
If steel and electricity could replace muscle and sinew in this crucial function, there would be obvious benefits for workers, employers, and the economy. Luckily, we have worked hard to provide a solution to the container unloading problems. If you are a logistics professional seeking to unload a container or trailer safely and efficiently – keep reading and prepare to get some actionable information.
