IMPORT SERVICES LIMITED CHOOSE NEWLAND BOOM CONVEYOR SYSTEMS
10 June 2013
Southampton based Import Services Limited are specialists in Retail Supply Chain Logistics. Their new DC, in the heart of Southampton container port, boasts an impressive 170,000 square feet with storage facilities for 20,000 pallets, utilising custom-built racking. To maximise their efficiency, they needed reliable, specially designed inbound conveyors to speed-up the unloading process of loose loaded cartons from 40-foot sea containers.
Newland were approached to offer a solution.Two lines were commissioned each comprising of a Newland MTC3X, multi-stage telescopic belt, boom conveyor, a 90° powered bend, a powered decline belt conveyor and a section of powered, line-shaft conveyor. This system has provided a tipping time as low as one hour for a 40-foot container.
A few months later Import Services identified a need to improve their outbound facility and Newland designed and installed a system to meet their needs. The system comprises of a horizontal, telescopic belt loading conveyor, an inclined belt conveyor, a 90° powered bend and an MTC3X, multi-stage, telescopic belt, boom conveyor. The MTC3X is fitted with a traversing chassis and mounted on rails such that the machine can move left and right to enable the loading of two 40-foot trailers parked side by side at the same door.
