With the Caljan conveyors we load containers quickly and ergonomically. We can see that sick leave, related to loading trucks, has been reduced significantly. Even better; the job can now be done by both male or female employees. In the past only male blue-collars could do the job.We investigated a number of companies who can supply similar equipment, but for us it was clear that we shouldn’t accept a poorer quality. Caljan has become our standard.

Samsonite uses Caljan Telescopic Conveyor fitted with Operator platform to load trucks easily and swiftly

Men and women employed at the Samsonite Distribution Centre at Oudenaarde have been using Caljan telescopic conveyors to load containers and trailers since 2002.

The distribution centre loads – and unloads – a variety of trailers from quite small up to 45 foot, including high cube. 25 cartons of various sizes are loaded per minute.

At Samsonite a healthy work environment is a priority, so the latest Caljan telescopic conveyor is fitted with an operator platform. Installed in leased facilities, the conveyor moves smoothly and uniformly, guided by gallow rails at the front and heavy duty castors at the rear.
