Importer transfers from hire to in-house pallets

Industry:

Importer of electrical goods.

Application:

Inversion of goods from hire pallets to cheaper in-house pallets.

The Problem:

This client was spending tens of thousands of dollars on pallet hire per month. They wanted to reduce this by transferring incoming pallet loads onto in-house pallets without risking injury or spending large amounts of labour manually.

Product Chosen:

Safetech INV 2000 Pallet Inverter.

Benefits of this Product:

  • Cost savings from the dehiring of out sourced pallets were more than $20,000 per month.
  • Injuries from manual handling were eliminated.
  • Time needed to invert the loads was significantly reduced.
  • The Safetech pallet inverter was designed to comply with all Australian OH & S standards.

Alternatives:

Forklift attachments that permit pallet inversion. They were considered too expensive as they tied up the forklift and required 2 people to perform the job efficiently.
