During the summer of 2012, the UK car industry enjoyed a 22% rise in production in comparison to the same period of 2011. Therefore, it was no surprise that a gargantuan amount of materials were being transported and used to keep up with demand. Action Handling has worked extensively with clients in the automotive sector for over 40 years, offering expert advice and solutions to satisfy requirements for any application.
A Major UK Automotive Manufacturer contacted Action Handling towards the end of summer 2012 to discuss the operation of their warehouse. Action Handling’s Sales Director, Stephen Phillips, met with the site contact to perform a complete analysis of the supply chain and production line. As a result of this, a significant delay was noticed in the replenishment of small parts to the assembly line area. Stephen Phillips dug deeper into the cause of this and the conclusion was that engineer’ on site had to manually retrieve specific small parts to restock as required. There was no equipment in use that would make this task any more efficient.
The design team at Action Handling were able to take the information from the client (quantity/size/frequency of stock items being transported) and put together a recommendation specific to their exact requirements.
A bespoke Storage Pallet (shown) would serve as the ideal solution with two main uses: 1) Store the small parts in individual pigeon holes when not-in-use and 2) Transport the small parts across the factory via pallet truck or forklift.
Having supplied the full working drawings and specification regarding size & capacity, an order for 36 units was confirmed with a view to a further 36 units being required if deemed suitable. The first units were fabricated and delivered within 3 working weeks. There is now a total of 72 units on site and in use on a daily basis.
