Wrap Happy on the Loading Bay!

New investment to improve efficiencies

with Neville Longshaw

Since the dim and distant past when Despatch first evolved, we have attempted all ways of placing plants onto trolleys safely, securely in transport and in a plant friendly environment.

Having tried tape, straps, cling wrap and trolley jackets, up until now, the most viable option has been cling and wrap, and even then this give us problems with labour intensity, plants tending to sweat and often trolleys sticking together whilst in transport.

After years of grovelling, I've finally managed to hypnotise Trevor into agreeing with an investment in a:

"BRAND NEW - NO PLYWOOD ATTACHED"

AUTOMATIC WRAPPING MACHINE

This allows the Loading Bay Operative (slave) to be more efficient and therefore abused in other areas.

The main benefits are trolleys can be wrapped sooner and wagons loaded quicker, and plants can breath better with the perforated wrap, 

State of the art program control and easy operation
