Vehicle Logistics Displays
Vehicle Management & Logistics displays and systems
Take advantage of our vast experience in producing highly effective, easy to use information displays, tailored to your exact logistics, traffic or vehicle management requirement.
UK made, with 3 year warranty, these traffic management and logistics marshalling displays are relied upon by some of the world’s best known manufacturing, logistics and freight companies and quickly pay for themselves.
Being custom made, they do EXACTLY what you need them to do, using well proven, highly secure and reliable methods.
Wired, Wi-Fi, UHF Radio, 4G, Ethernet or any of a wide range of Industrial Network protocols means we can integrate into almost any site and offer the flexibility you need. Systems can also be entirely stand-alone.
We can also link the data in near real-time to our secure cloud-based system, so you and your team can view your live site traffic status and historic records from wherever you are in the world.
Freight vehicle traffic flow management signs. Wireless control simplifies this installation and allows easy re-configuration of the marshalling yard layout to allow for changes in container storage location.
Industrial displays need to accept the most common industrial signals, so we have solutions for TCP/IP, Ethernet/IP, Profinet, Profibus, Interbus, EtherCAT, ControlNet, 4-20mA etc.
Fork-lift truck call systems
We have produced some very effective Fork-Lift Truck call systems for major vehicle manufacturers.
The vehicle drivers have a dedicated Android phone which is mounted in front of them, acting as a small cloud-enabled touch screen, with alert sounds.
Whenever a production cell needs re-stocking with a particular item, they select the item and all drivers can see what is required.
The first driver to respond ‘wins’ the job and the job is taken off the list..
The status of all drivers can be seen in real time, by the shop floor teams, by the drivers and by management, wherever they may be.
This keeps everyone in the know, and the competitive aspect reduces response times.
A wide range of warehouse and factory traffic monitoring and display systems, such as routing signs, bay status displays, clocks, temperature and humidity displays etc.
Distribution Bay logistics message displays
We produce message display systems for use in logistics distribution warehouses. These are often installed at the lorry bays to indicate such information as next destination, trailer number, ETA and so on.
We also make message displays for demurrage / vehicle delay calculation and display, with statistical analysis according to each site’s particular requirements.
Loading Bay logistics management systems
Everyone’s freight management requirements are slightly different, so we approach the design of your logistics Bay Management system starting from your requirements only.
Everything is tailored using your terminology, corporate look etc. There’s no excess baggage of unused features to wade through – everything you need is close at hand, everything you don’t need is removed.
Aggregate loading display for tipper truck drivers.
These rugged outdoor displays mount high above various aggregate discharge hoppers in a quarry, to let drivers know about the loads they will be collecting.
Vehicle Marshalling Displays – a case study
Delivery and collection vehicles need to know where to go as soon as they arrive at your facility. Here is an example of how we helped one high volume manufacturing and distribution company achieve this…
Glendinning approached us to see if we could design and manufacture a vehicle routing display system to speed up vehicle turn-rounds at their quarry and concrete plants.
We designed a group of large alphanumeric displays, with bright, clear LEDs, which would mount at various points around the plant.
They were sized so that drivers could easily see their vehicle registration numbers from across the marshalling yard.
To draw attention to their pickup or dropoff point, new arrivals would have their vehicle ID screens flashing.
In such a harsh outdoor environment, where fine dust is an ever-present reality, we paid particular attention to the sealing of the enclosures, allowing them to be hosed down with high pressure jets when needed.
In addition to the display hardware, we created a user-friendly PC application for the gate-house staff to help them to manage and route the vehicles as needed.
