The transport industry keeps the country moving, but only if they themselves are running at peak efficiency.
Getting people and products from A to B quickly, safely and effectively is the beating heart of the industry.
We can help.
A place for everything and everything in its place
A busy warehouse filled with dozens of people and thousands of boxes is a logistical challenge to say the least.
Getting the right box onto the right truck at the right time takes experience, skill and planning.
A concise system that keeps track of everything and puts it where it should be when it should be there, is essential for a successful transport company.
Not only does this ensure a successful operation, but it also cuts costs and maximises profit.
Why the transport industry represents a unique challenge
It’s one thing to store goods in one place and send them to clients as they’re bought, but the transport industry is a constant stream of activity.
This high-usage environment means that everything is compounded, from normal wear and tear on equipment to the risk factor of accidents.
Storage solutions for the transport industry need to be tougher as they are treated more harshly in this high-octane situation.
When extra protection is needed
Because of the frantic, 24/7 pace of the transport industry, extra precautions are recommended in the warehouse.
Pallet racking protectors
Essential protection in a warehouse, pallet racking protectors are even more important in the transport industry.
Post protectors, aisle protectors, anti-collapse mesh, barriers and accessories all increase the life span of your pallet racking, lowers repair costs and create a safer working environment for staff and visitors.
With such a hive of activity in a busy industry, row protectors prevent damage from forklift collisions, extending the lifespan of racking and minimising maintenance.
Steel safety bollards
Safety bollards protect against collision, block vehicle access and increase site safety.
With so many vehicles coming and going, they’re also a simple but effective security asset to keep your property safe against vandalism, ram raids and theft.
In such a frantic industry, having both people and machinery occupying the same space, it’s essential to create a clear segregation between the two and help eliminate the risk of accidents.
The simplest and most effective way to do so is with the installation of pedestrian and forklift safety barriers, ensuring that your staff, machinery and products remain safe at all times.
Case Study: Fast Forward Freight
PBT Transport is an established New Zealand freight-forwarding, courier and transportation service provider.
The company expanded in 2015, introducing PBT Logistics – a new specialist solution for distribution and storage.
With this expansion came a complete warehouse fit-out, consisting of 6000 pallet spaces along with updating and replacing existing racking.
The challenge was the very nature of the transport industry and the high volume of traffic involved.
PBT required heavy-duty racking that could stand up to high traffic, as well as expand in future if needed.
Thanks to the large volume of pallet racking stock we carry, we could quickly respond to PBT’s rapid growth, on budget and within a timeframe.
Likewise, our reach has enabled us to install PBT distribution depots nationwide from Whangarei to Cromwell.
Post Christchurch earthquake, we dealt directly with Council officials to ensure the Christchurch branch was compliant with the new regulations.
