                MADE BY BEUMER GROUP

                Doing more with less has driven BEUMER Group since decades - Reduction is good but sometime eliminating is better and leads to real eco effectiveness. BEUMER Group focuses first on listening. Always. Listening to our customers' voices, and even going farther downstream to listen to their customers' voices.

                Then we focus on innovation that makes a meaningful difference at the point-of-impact.- where it really matters to end users of the broad range of industrial and consumer products that are processed, converted, or handled in some form by BEUMER Group technology.

                Taking the decision to go pallet less should be reviewed under the perpective of creating a logistically manageable load. Should your distribution chain meet those requirements you could benefit from:

                • Significant reduction of CO2 emissions due to reduced transportation efforts (weight, increased utilization of container or trucks, eliminating of empty pallet transport, etc.)
                • Improved hygiene
                • 6 sided environmental protection
                • Reduced handling
                • Use of recyclable materials
                • Less onsite storage required
                • Increased system reliability
                • Our goal is to improve the use of recyclable materials and to re use them within the packaging material chain according to the cradle-to-cradle principle. With the BEUMER Group palletless approach we not only want to do things right, we want to do the right things.

                  • ERGONOMIC, SAFE AND ROBUST

                    Higher operational performance
                    Global competitive pressures in parcel logistics require constant process optimisation. The BEUMER Parcel Picker® helps companies meet the growing requirements by significantly increasing operational performance. The robust BEUMER Parcel Picker® allows faster and more efficient unloading and a consistently high throughput.

                    Easy and gentle unloading
                    The semi-automatic BEUMER Parcel Picker® is a fast and ergonomic solution for unloading packages, parcels and shipping units of different weights and sizes. The unloading unit works with swap bodies, fixed truck bodies and roller containers and can easily be operated. The parcels are either pulled onto the conveying system with an ergonomically designed, manually operated manipulator, or - in case of roller containers – by adding a designated module. In both cases the parcels are unloaded in bulk and transferred to the sortation system by a telescopic belt conveyor.
