Airports International speaks to Arjan Nobel, global sales manager for loading solutions specialist Joloda Hydraroll, about the rise in automation and the joys of a short lead time
What products have you launched in the last year?
Joloda Hydraroll has continued to expand its product portfolio, as well as upgrading existing products. We are well known for our Skate & Track Loading Systems, a loading solution that is ideal for moving heavy loads on and off trucks, eliminating the need for forklifts. This is done by using a set of manually operated skates, which run across tracks built into the trailer or container floor.
We recently added a lightweight aluminium skate to our Skate & Track Loading System line-up. The aluminium skate is half the weight of our original steel-type skate (with a lifting capacity of 1,600kg per pair), making it easier to handle. It will also experience less wear and tear, increasing the lifespan of the loading solution and the trailer.
