Dutch airline optimizes cross docking
Some heavy duty iForks for 24/7 use have been integrated in the logistics operation of a Dutch airline to weigh incoming goods for air cargo skids. These forks are reinforced and have a longer base fork, equipped with two load cells in every fork shoe. All incoming trucks get unloaded with the iForks and the weighing data are being sent to the WMS. Relying on real-time, accurate weighing data allows the airline to plan the loading of the cargo planes. Cost efficient and safe at the same time!
