FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE March 13, 2015
(St. Charles, Missouri, March 13, 2015)—National Cart, an innovator in material handling solutions, is featuring their proven distribution cart, The Rolltainer, and one of their new products, The Step Cart, at ProMat 2015. These carts reduce three major problems in retail distribution: time, space and safety.
DC to store shelf fast
The Rolltainer offers retailers the fastest means of moving products from the distribution center to store shelf. Its design allows for easy product loading/unloading while providing a hefty 1,000 lb capacity.
Furthermore, the sturdy net enclosure holds product in place eliminating the need for excessive amounts of shrink-wrap. Moving between the DC, trailer and store is seamless with its heavy-duty casters. Rolltainer carts work as a single unit or in multi-cart configurations when pulled using a tug. The carts’ collapsible design allows for nesting and reduces the need for large storage space when not in use.
There is no need to transfer products from pallet to storage or other carts with the Rolltainer. Once product is loaded, it goes from the DC onto trailers and ultimately to store shelves. This increases throughput and because there is no transfer from pallets. Ergonomics and productivity of loading and unloading also improve. According to National Cart’s Vice President of Sales, John Tigges, “The Rolltainer is a game changer as it totally eliminates the need for pallets and shrink-wrap while reducing product touches by up to 50%.”
A step up in stocking safety
The footprint for traditional brick and mortar stores continues to shrink. At the same time, need for vertically stocked shelves increases. However, a risk for injury also increases while performing necessary stocking. The Step Cart combines easy access to product with employee safety.
“The Step Cart enables greater access to elevated picks and putaways while improving productivity, safety, and ergonomics with its on-board ladder and work platform,” says Tom Rattini, vice president of engineering. It features a built-in ladder. When activated, the ladder holds the cart in place for loading and climbing. The welded and bolted extra-wide steps equipped with non-slip tape, ensure user safety. Its larger than usual handles on each side of the ladder provide balance when climbing. An extended reach bar on top combined with offset push handles protects users from painful shin injuries.
