If Chantelle's approach to workplace health had to be described, it would have to be "exemplary". For several years, the French lingerie manufacturer and distributor has been implementing a programme to prevent work-related musculoskeletal disorders on its logistics warehouses. To continue this approach, Chantelle has chosen to install a PowerFlex motorised flexible conveyor on its logistics platform in Villers-Bretonneux, Hauts-de-France.

60 is the percentage of load port that has been reduced by the BUT house equipment specialist since the installation of three BestReach telescopic conveyors. Thanks to the nacelle of automated systems, mounted on hydraulic cylinders, operators significantly improve their working ergonomics by handling the unloading of packages at different heights of the truck. The rear of the conveyors is also equipped with a mat that has the advantage of stacking packages on pallets without having to wear them again. The pallets are thus better organized and the operators less tired.
Recently, 2 telescopic boom conveyors from FMH Conveyors have been installed at DHL in Beek (NL). The telescopic conveyors feed the sorter located at a higher level thanks to their specially developed belt transfer for this application. The operator platform at the front of the telescopic boom conveyors gives users the ability to process high-cube trailers with much diversified cargo much faster. As a result, the unloading time of the incoming trailers is extremely short. Within 45 minutes, the operators unload the whole high-cube trailer and take on another task in the distribution center.
