How can your business handle a 20% increase in parcel volume?
Without investments in new distribution centers, hubs and depots, growth must be handled in existing environments. Unless you are able to expand, increasing capacity may result in system overloads, loss of employees and equipment break-down. To determine how you best can cope with increased parcel volumes, we recommend that each stage of the work flow be analyzed, so weak areas can be identified.
In our experience it is often possible to optimize the way parcels are unloaded/loaded. With a Caljan Performer Telescopic Conveyor, you can reconfigure the equipment as the needs of your business develop. With the right equipment, unloading and loading can become quicker and more cost-effective. At Caljan Rite-Hite we consider the work environment too, keenly aware that it can be difficult to recruit and retain personnel.
We are keen to hear about your challenge — and find a solution that helps you reach your objective. Join us at the ProMat show next month or ring freephone 800 338 1751.
From Monday April 8th to Thursday April 11th.

Volumes will continue to increase
Growth in parcel volume is driven by e-commerce. The pattern disclosed by data analysis indicates that retailers — and parcel carriers — must continue to ramp up their operations:
- In 2016 25% of US shoppers prefered to purchase non-food items online.
- In 2017 the volume of parcels being shipped around the US grew to 11.9 billion.
