Flowerline attains streamlined packing process

14 August 2018

FLOWERLINE UK Ltd has streamlined its loading process and increased capability, by installing specialist loading bay equipment designed and manufactured by Thorworld Industries.

Performing as packers for leading online florist, PrestigeFlowers, Mansfield-based Flowerline runs a busy year-round operation which further intensifies in the run up to Christmas, Valentine’s Day and Mothering Sunday. 

To improve efficiencies and keep busy periods flowing, the firm chose to research options for an appropriate loading system; and through the internet, found the appropriate services of Thorworld Industries.

By being centrally based in Derbyshire, Julian was able to visit the company’s manufacturing site, and discuss his exact loading situation, so the most appropriate solution could be presented.  

It became clear that Flowerline needed a walk ramp solution that was portable and could be transferred quickly from vehicle-to-vehicle. It had to be lightweight too, so an operative could move it by hand, rather than with a fork lift truck. The ramp has also reduced both the amount of time a fork lift truck has to work and the time it takes to load a lorry, helping Flowerline to be more cost effective and efficient.
