Unloading loose loaded cargo inside containers and trailers
In a logistic- and distribution center, there are typically many areas where intense levels of manual handling occur, such as the inbound and outbound docks, as well as storage and picking areas. At the receiving dock, a common challenge is unloading loose loaded containers and trailers. This is one of the most physically demanding jobs, due to heavy lifting and bad posture. TAWI Telescopic mounted unloader can help you out, reduce the load on your body and at the same time increase productivity.
Container unloading equipment to avoid strain injuries
In recent years, TAWI systems for unloading containers have been utilized by clients across many different industries. We have noted most industries are placing more attention on employee health and safety. Our solutions have helped transform many workplaces and as a result they can be found in almost every location where manual lifting takes place. Manual handling without a lifting aid often causes work-related strain injuries due to bad posture and repetitive manual lifting. This can be eliminated by using ergnomic equipment for unloading trailers and containers.
How to unload inside a container or trailer with ease?
To unload a truck or container manually with loose loaded parcels is a challenge, most often related to repetitive and heavy lifting. TAWI telescopic mounted unloader enables you to reach inside the container or trailer with a tube lifter which is mounted onto a telescopic conveyor. The tube lifter can be either factory-fitted (onto a new telescopic conveyor) or retro-fitted (to your existing telescopic conveyor) at your premises. Furthermore, the solution maximizes the working height by sensing the headroom available and adjusting itself automatically, making it the ideal solution for working in confined spaces with limited headroom. The ultimate vacuum lifting aid at the unloading dock for unloading loose loaded cargo inside a container or trailer.
The benefits with TAWI’s container and trailer unloading equipment
The benefits for employers and employees can’t be underestimated. Independent studies* show that manual lifting can result in repetitive strain injuries and damage to the spine. This can lead to absence or, in serious cases, to supplementary disability pension. TAWIs solutions minimizes the risk of such work-related injuries. While productivity is maintained, or increased, the load on the body can be reduced by more than 80 percent. Our goal is always to minimize the load on the body, increase productivity and enhance user happiness.
