Regardless of the container size, size of box or weight of box, companies who start using a Destuff-IT™ machine over their usual step-stool method ALWAYS see a reduction in the number of man hours required to unload a container or trailer by 50%. Read that again — 50%. Because the number of man hours required decreases, unload times are usually affected by a similar amount.
In addition, the unit can be connected to an auto-palletizer for even higher case rates and further labor reductions.
Time after time, the Destuff-IT™ has increased productivity levels in distribution centers & 3PLs across North America. Noted below are results achieved by actual Destuff-IT™ customers during time studies. Is there a sample which resembles your operation? Why not contrast your productivity with the average unload times realized when using a Destuff-IT™?
