A bespoke Konecranes heavy truck, specified and supplied by Impact, has boosted productivity at specialist cleaning firm South Eastern Tanker Services (SETS) by 50 per cent by allowing containers to be stacked three-high for the first time.
Impact worked with SETS to specify the Konecranes SMV 3 ECC 80, equipping the heavy truck with a specialised ELME 589TB spreader that allows SETS to stack three ISO tank containers and ISO dry freight containers on top of each other instead of a two-high stack that the business had used previously. This has significantly increased storage capacity and efficiency without increasing the footprint of the site.
At the same time, the new equipment is able to safely manoeuvre under the road overpasses surrounding SETS’ Dagenham headquarters.
The Impact-supplied truck joins an existing Konecranes unit at SETS, and is expected to handle more than 20,000 empty tankers annually, working six days a week.
SETS Managing Director Gary Waddilove says: “Thanks to our new truck and its modified handling gear we can fit more tankers in the yard, comfortably meeting the demands of our growing business, while continuing to offer customers rapid service.”
