Miniclipper Logistics maximises safety with two new Thorworld platform installations

To further demonstrate our high-principled safety standards, we have invested in two purpose-built Thorworld Lightweight Mobile Platforms for our loading functions.The platforms based at our Leighton Buzzard and Dunstable sites will deliver heightened loading safety practices, guard against operator accidents and increase loading and unloading efficiencies.

The apparatus has been designed for use in conjunction with fork lift trucks. Pockets feature at the sides of the platforms to enable fork lift drivers to reposition with ease, whilst hinged barriers with gas springs allow for goods to be safely lowered onto / off the platform.  Other features include ladders with twin hinged barriers to the opening, height adjustable legs, heavy duty castors for easy movement, and chains, hooks and tensioning brackets to connect the platforms to vehicles.

Commenting on the company’s decision to bring the new, safety loading equipment on board, Miniclipper’s Eastern Avenue Warehouse Manager, Stuart Mellors said:

“The past two years have seen us continue to secure contracts from larger customers, generating a progression that has prompted the evaluation of our warehouse loading processes. We needed solutions that would provide safe spaces for our operatives to palletise loose goods, in situ, enabling staff to prepare and pack a multitude of consignments ranging from electrical items through to prepacked long-life food products. I know the Thorworld brand well, it provides the quality-standard and long-lasting equipment we were looking for.”
