A to B transport with Lowpads at KWS

Challenge

Obstacles of moving heavy containers manually

The transportation of heavy containers at KWS relied heavily on manual labor, which posed significant challenges. Workers often struggled with the physical demands of moving heavy loads around the facility, leading to strains and inefficiencies. The availability of workers was also a constant concern, causing workflow bottlenecks and hindering productivity. The manual handling of such heavy loads strained resources and resulted in suboptimal operational conditions. Against this backdrop, it became increasingly evident that a transformative solution was necessary to streamline operations and enhance efficiency.

Solution

Efficient workflow and safer work environment

Lowpads played a vital role in streamlining KWS's operations by automating their manual transport tasks. This led to a faster movement of containers and a safer work environment for all employees. The exceptional features of the Lowpads, especially the low height of Lowpad M, helped KWS utilize their space more efficiently, which in turn maximized their productivity and improved their overall operational effectiveness.
