No more cable clutter with new cabinet solution at John Forwarding

Cable clutter, dusty power strips, countless power supplies: This is the usual sight in many warehouse offices where Hall scanner required for the turnover of goods are stored and charged. Also at John Forwarding in Eichenzell people were annoyed by this “clutter” – and asked us whether we had a solution at hand. We had.

New cabinet solution at John Forwarding

John Forwarding has long been our customer and uses our mobile telematics solution PSV3®. For barcode scanning of incoming and outgoing shipments, John Forwarding has 50 mobile data terminals from Motorola in use. Most of them are only active at night, when the 70,000 square-foot transshipment hall serves as the central hub of the cargo cooperation CargoLine. During the day, the scanners are used for the remaining business of the logistics service provider. Two-thirds of the units have a break and recharge for the next shift. The forwarder was now looking for a space-saving solution without cable clutter, to store and recharge these devices.

New devices – better cabinet solution

The occasion was a generational change in mobile data terminals. Thanks to special software and hardware modifications designed by TIS, the new Motorola MC9590-type devices can be used for the business of the freight forwarder as well as the warehouse turnover in the Cargo Line hub. Now these new multifunctional data terminals that have scanner, camera, transponder and the ergonomics required in logistics, had to be kept in a space saving and safe way.

The Forwarder was looking for our advice – and would find it. Specifically for the MC9590 there is an orange special furniture that we ordered as perfect fit for our customer and built that up in his warehouse office.

The solution:

Three special cabinets with system

In the warehouse office of John Forwarding are now three clean and lockable metal cabinets with a capacity of 20 scanners each. The fixtures are accurately lined up in five rows one above the other on robust outlet strips with power supply.They are fed from a central transformer, which makes the many bulky chargers usually in use unnecessary – this saves space and cost, of course. In addition, the cabinets have an electric ventilation that provides for a largely dust-free storage behind the plexiglass doors. Laborious cleaning of the individual chargers that are very sensitive to moisture, is not necessary.
