In March 2015, DB Schenker Logistics UK opened their new perishables handling facility at London Heathrow with numerous features that improve handling processes, adding efficiency and value to their perishables customers supply chain.
To avoid manual handling of air freight, the temperature controlled facility includes a 20ft truck dock from SACO installed in an airlock, as well as a SACO slave pallet system with two Pallet Masters and slave pallets. The Pallet Masters each include a unique integrated weighing system for weighing ULD’s whilst still on the slave pallet. "Efficiency is of paramount importance for perishables customers", says Helgi Ingolfsson, CEO of DB Schenker Logistics in the UK. "The significant investment we have made is not only part of our airfreight strategy, but a result of from feedback from clients and valuing their needs from a logistics provider in this sector."
