EastPack - A Game Changer for Container Loading

EastPack is New Zealand’s largest Kiwifruit post-harvest operation, with some of the most sophisticated equipment in the industry, and it's just jumped up another notch!

EastPack has recently undergone a project at their Quarry Rd Packhouse, with the aim to increase the volume of container shipments within the Kiwifruit industry.

Originally fork-lifting pallets into container trucks and then manually pallet-jacking them into position under a canopy, EastPack have now upgraded to a complete Container Dock Loading System . Designed, supplied and installed by Ulti Group, this system has revolutionised their container loading process, cutting down the time it takes to load a truck from 45mins to 8mins, a productivity saving of 82%!

EastPack is now using four Ulti Container Dock Loading Systems for their container loading. Each system consists of:

1x Ulti Sectional Door

1x Ulti Container Dock Leveller

1x Ulti Eliminator Shelter

1x Ulti Truck Reversing Notification System

2x Ulti Wheel Guides

These systems allow for better communication between truck and loading personnel, whilst also increasing efficiency by less manual handling of product. It’s been a massive time saver, allowing EastPack to increase the number of container trucks loaded per day, improve their employee safety and happiness, and ensure product integrity.
