Specification, Design and Sourcing

Materials handling Equipment (MHE) and Returnable Transit Packaging (RTP) can mean a substantial investment. However investing time in careful specification and sourcing, whilst taking into account all of the requirements of users either within the single warehouse or throughout the entire supply chain should reduce operational costs over time.

All aspects of the customer's operation, including storage, handling, transport, and production requirements are considered when specifying and / or sourcing Materials Handling and Transit Packaging equipment.

We provide the following service and advice:

  • Specification of MHE, engineered systems, industrial trucks, or bulk material handling.
  • Project Management for RTP systems from design, prototyping and tooling right through to trials & production
  • Source best product from an extensive established Global Supplier Base
  • Facilitate on-going relationship between supplier and customer
