Jungheinrich keeps the neighbours happy

Jungheinrich has launched an electric-powered pallet truck designed for use at sites where noise levels need to be kept to a minimum – such as retail outlets in residential areas.

The EJE 116 electric powered pedestrian-controlled pallet truck is now available with Silent Drive, which reduces noise from the truck to 59 dB(A).

Technical modifications to the truck include a low-noise pump that automatically turns off when the desired lifting height has been achieved, thus eliminating the sound that can sometimes be heard when electric-powered stackers reach maximum lift height.

According to Jungheinrich UK‘ marketing manager Craig Johnson, the Silent Drive option is ideal for retail outlets in built-up areas where deliveries are received early in the morning.

In other news, Junheinrich and DHL are helping to ensure the health of the NHS Supply Chain.

NHS Supply Chain – a joint venture between the Supply Chain Management Division of the NHS Business Services Authority and DHL, provides a dedicated supply chain service to the National Health Service throughout England and Wales.

Formed in 2005 with the aim of saving the NHS more than £1 billion over a ten-year period, the organisation has a number of distribution centres strategically located throughout England in Derbyshire, Suffolk, Kent, Yorkshire, Warwickshire, Cheshire and Somerset.

Located on the outskirts of the market town of Bridgwater, NHS Supply Chain’s 130,000 sq.ft Somerset facility houses more than 8,000 product lines, which are distributed to some 3,500 delivery points, including hospitals and GPs‘ surgeries, throughout the south west.

Typically, roughly £8 million of stock is held within the Bridgwater store at any given time, with around 2,000 deliveries are made every week from the site, and more than six million product lines and 57 million cases are picked every year.

While standard orders are picked and despatched within 48 hours of receipt, next-day delivery is available for urgent (but non-emergency) requests. An emergency response service allows orders to be picked and despatched within five hours.

Successful picking KPIs at the site are approaching 99%, which Jungheinrich partially attributes to the reliability and efficiency of the materials handling equipment.  NHS Supply Chain operates a fleet of Jungheinrich forklifts at the Somerset facility.
