Automate Cargo Handling For Faster Distribution, Labor Savings

Madras, OR, November 21, 2016—Streamline the material flow in warehouse/distribution operations using the Freight Runner™ Conveyor by KEITH. Installed inside a trailer, the durable chain-rail conveying system improves product throughput, reduces cargo damage and optimizes available warehouse resources.

This automated hydraulic system offers fast loading and unloading, eliminating the need of a pallet jack for moving pallets or unitized loads. The conveyor replaces the standard, manual distribution process that includes a forklift operator and an employee inside the trailer using a pallet jack, which is a time consuming process. Cargo, trailer and equipment damage are also reduced, because forklifts never enter the trailer.

With the Freight Runner™ Conveyor, once a forklift positions the cargo during the loading process, the system automatically indexes it toward the front of the trailer making room for the next load. Unloading is just as simple. A full-sized semi trailer can load or unload in as little as two minutes.

Retrofitting existing trailers is an option, with installation a quick and easy process. The system can easily move up to 30 ton and tolerates cool temperatures, making it a good choice for use in cold storage facilities and refrigeration trailers. Systems can also easily be mounted to an existing dock, creating seamless cargo transfer between dock and trailer.

KEITH Mfg. Co. has provided a variety of industries with safe, reliable and innovative pallet and bulk material handling solutions. KEITH systems are used throughout the refuse & recycling, agriculture, energy generation and wood products industries.
