Dex­ion

The benefits of using SIMPLY. Logistic container filler solution to transport heavy-duty goods.

The ini­tial situation:
Lots of staff. Lots of risks.

DEXION is a mar­ket leader in Europe and oper­ates world­wide as part of the Gonva­r­ri Mate­r­i­al Han­dling Group. Every week, some twen­ty con­tain­ers leave its Laubach fac­to­ry in Hesse, typ­i­cal­ly car­ry­ing mate­ri­als for high-rack warehouses. 

The load­ing process would usu­al­ly take two hours and was both ardu­ous and dan­ger­ous. Pro­files up to 12 metres long would have to be picked up by two fork­lifts, which would then labo­ri­ous­ly tow them into the con­tain­ers. The fork­lifts also had to be direct­ed and there were of course staff inside the very cramped con­tain­ers – invis­i­ble to the fork­lift dri­vers. This method was obvi­ous­ly unable to max­imise the con­tain­ers’ full capac­i­ty either. Open-top con­tain­ers, mean­while, were sim­i­lar­ly not viable due to the infra­struc­ture need­ed for load­ing and the high rental costs. But DEXION soon found the solu­tion to its logis­tics prob­lem in ear­ly 2019 at the Logi­MAT trade fair, where the SIMPLY pre­sen­ta­tion quick­ly con­vinced DEXION of its prod­uct benefits.

The solu­tion:
Push the but­ton. Load and go.

Because SIMPLY slides loads into the con­tain­er. With­in the space of ten min­utes – at the push of a but­ton. All it needs for oper­a­tion is a high-volt­age pow­er con­nec­tion and com­pressed-air sup­ply. And as soon as the con­tain­er doors are shut and the truck leaves the fac­to­ry grounds, SIMPLY is once again ready to use.

And so it was that SIMPLY was giv­en the go-ahead very soon after the trade fair. The sig­nif­i­cant­ly enhanced safe­ty for staff was piv­otal to the deci­sion. Haz­ardous work inside con­tain­ers is now a thing of the past, as are heavy loads that sud­den­ly slide off the forks and get out of con­trol.
Thir­ty staff from logis­tics, ware­hous­ing and admin­is­tra­tion attend­ed the start-up – because a pur­chase offer­ing such great prospects had nat­u­ral­ly sparked a lot of inter­est.
It very soon became clear that the SIMPLY would be able to deliv­er on all its promis­es for DEXION.
The increased safe­ty goes hand in hand with tan­gi­ble finan­cial ben­e­fits. For a start, few­er staff are required. Pre­vi­ous­ly, around five work­ers would have to be tied up with load­ing for at least two hours every day. Now, it’s just one! And this staff mem­ber can get the whole job done in half an hour. Includ­ing pre-pack­ing! As a con­ser­v­a­tive esti­mate, that’s four man-hours per con­tain­er. With 20 con­tain­ers a week, this ends up being 80 man-hours or 10 man-days! The com­pa­ny is also able to save on one fork­lift, as well as the costs for con­tain­er-truck down­times.
The staff mem­ber just dri­ves the fork­lift into the hall and loads the car­go onto the pal­let of the SIMPLY, which sits ready and wait­ing out­side the hall. The load is then secured. In ide­al spa­tial and vis­i­bil­i­ty con­di­tions, so even cost­ly dam­age can be avoid­ed. When the truck arrives, it is con­nect­ed to the SIMPLY, and then it’s just a mat­ter of:
Push the but­ton. Load and go.
