The new year is a few weeks old now and we have a lot to tell you! Because we are proud of our new collaborations and our new customers!
Axell Logistics has been the logistic supplier for many years of Smurfit Kappa in Etten-Leur. And we started the new year very well by expanding the collaboration with them. We started with the storage of big rolls of paper as a test for ‘Smurfit Kappa Roermond Papier’. These rolls will be processed at our neighbors Smurfit Kappa Elcorr.
These rolls are huge and weigh almost 3500 kilo. Just lifting them with our own reachtrucks isn’t possible. Loading and unloading the rolls has to happen by using a special reachtruck with a roller clamp, which we rented temporarily. The test is currently under evaluation and we hope to proceed with our activitities in the future.
Furthermore, the sister company of RPC Pet Power, the English company RPC Corby is going to use our warehouse in Etten-Leur for the external storage of packaging for the Dutch and Belgium, food-industry. They want to prevent a possible disruption because of the Brexit. Next to the logistic process, Axell Logistic will also arrange the transport with mega-trailers. These trailers are higher than 2,80m. We can normally fit 33 pallets in a truck, now we can store 66 pallets in one truck (with a height of 1,45m). More efficient en faster!
