Trolleys make stock movement more efficient, saving operational costs and time. Depending on the type of goods involved you can use appropriately designed trolleys to further productivity.
Trolleys improve the overall workflow of your retail space by ensuring smooth movement of goods from the stock room to the shelves. Trolleys are useful at the other end of the chain as well, when you receive stock and need to load it into the warehouse or storage area. They reduce the amount of manual labour required for both situations.
Benefits of using trolleys
Save time and increase productivity
Instead of making repeated trips to the stock room, trolleys allow staff to transfer a large volume at a time. This makes stocking up retail shelves that much easier and faster. Smooth stock movement ensures that your shelves are always full and you never lose a sale due to an empty shelf.
Promotes safety at work
Heavy lifting and carrying can result in muscular and skeletal damage, especially over a long period of time. Moving stock manually also poses a trip hazard. Trolleys remove the need for heavy labour, they are designed with ergonomics in mind to make shifting and moving easier for your staff. Equipped with smooth rolling casters, brakes and strong handles, they reduce the risk of accidents. This, in turn, contributes to a safer work environment and reduces absenteeism.
Reduces risk of breakage
In addition to safety for your staff, using trolleys to transport goods cuts down the risk of damage. Packages are loaded safely into sturdy trolleys that hold them securely until the designated unloading section is reached.
Another big advantage of trolleys is that they are versatile and can hold a wide array of goods. Whether you operate a supermarket or a large warehouse, trolleys are essential for quick and convenient stock movement. There are even some models that are designed for operation in extreme hot or cold conditions, such as walk in freezers.
They’re a long-term investment
Trolleys improve productivity, reduce breakage and are built to last for years. They are designed to withstand the rigors of everyday use and are made to be corrosion resistant. Simple designs and sturdy construction make trolleys easy to maintain. The initial investment you make for the appropriate trolleys help you save in the long run.
Choose trolleys that suit your specific needs
In addition to a large and deep basket space, a cargo trolley has an additional flat lower shelf that can hold bulk buy bags or boxes. It can securely hold up to 200 kg of inventory. The lower shelf is spring loaded to make it easier to place and remove items. If preferred, the spring feature can be removed to leave just a flat deck. This type of trolley is often called the garden trolley as it can carry bulky products like sacks of potting mix, awkwardly shaped baskets and even planters.
Platform trolleys are designed to carry flat packs and boxes. These are ergonomically designed for ease of use and the handle is placed at an optimum height for staff to easily use. It helps make light work of heavy stock transfer tasks. Smooth castors make movement hassle free. It’s equipped with two fixed castors and two swivel castors to offer the handler better control.
