The Benefits Of Our Plastics Trucks

We never tire of talking about the endless benefits our plastic products have to offer. Among the products we’re getting excited about recently are our plastics trucks. Yes, we know, we know – admittedly they’re possibly not the most riveting things on the surface of the planet, but you can’t deny they’re pretty handy. Like all our products, they’re manufactured using our roto moulding process, allowing us the flexibility to produce them in a whole range of useful sizes.

Storage

As you’ve probably already inferred, the main use for our plastic trucks is storage. In fact they’re specifically designed with this in mind, so and there’s virtually no environment in which their strengths are more obvious than that of a warehouse. Depending on your industry, a warehouse can serve various purposes – for some, it’s a perpetually moving hive of activity, with things being constructed, shipped or taken apart, whereas for others it’s simply a place to store excess stock. Whatever you use it for, though, there’s no point of having one if it’s disorganised, and this is where our plastic trucks come in. Suitable for almost all manner of materials handling, you can easily organise your warehouse with our trucks, sorting and distributing your stock into a neat, foolproof structure.

It may sound like just a dull bit of housekeeping, but a little organisation can go a long way. Good organisation means faster and easier storage and retrieval, which in turn means improved efficiency and productivity – in other words, less time that your employees have to spend fruitlessly searching shelves for the item they’re looking for. The varying colours that our trucks are available in is also a boon in this respect, as you can quickly locate and identify what’s in them purely by whether they’re, say, red or green – further improving your efficiency! Plastic trucks are also cost-effective, and far safer than weaker alternatives (such as cardboard boxes) when storing heavier items – you can be sure that nothing’s going to fall through the bottom!

 Transportation

As well as nestling quite well in whatever space you have ready for them, plastic trucks are pretty easy to get there in the first place, too. Their castors make them drastically more mobile than some alternatives, freeing up your palettes and trolleys for more urgent or specialised tasks. They’re also not as heavy as (for example) metal containers, they’re equally durable, and with nicely rounded corners. This means that not only can they guarantee the safety of their contents from casual bumps and damage, but they’re also safer for humans to manoeuvre around, too. Unlike metal, you’d have to be running at quite some speed to hurt yourself on a plastics truck! (Oh by the way, for legal reasons we at Excelsior do not endorse running at full speed into our products. They are not designed for it.)
