Witney-based Oxford Carriers has invested in a high-rise telescopic roller conveyor to help speed the process of devanning containers.
The unit was bought to meet a 30% increase in product brought in by a fulfilment customer, and makes in-bound deliveries much more efficient.
The company has also acquired two new artics with trailers. The vehicles are fully equipped for running in London, which has strict direct vision and emissions standards.
“We’ve also completed training for eight team members on our ‘man-up’ trucks,” says MD Grant Morris. “We have our own RTITB accredited instructor so we can ensure that safety is always paramount.”
The electric ‘man-up’ trucks are useful for narrow aisle work and selecting product from high-bay racking.
“Our FLTs are all electric which means there are zero emissions within our warehousing spaces,” says Grant.
