Renting roll containers can be the solution; Logistically speaking, a special case always takes place just before and after the school vacations. Millions of school books change hands within a short period of time and need to be in the right place at the right time. Ready for the start of a new school year. The logistics process that makes this possible is labor-intensive and time-sensitive. Rotomrent always provides its logistics partners with the right amount of resources such as roll containers for rental at short notice to ensure the distribution of teaching materials on time. This logistical challenge begins just before the summer vacations with the collection of books and ends with the delivery of books just before the start of the new school year.
Considering the amount of teaching material that needs to be moved in a short period of time, it is easy to imagine that there will be enormous peaks in roll container rental at distribution centers. Rotomrent supports the client in this process by renting 4-rack rolling containers and anti-theft rolling containers so that up to 15,000 book packages per day can be shipped. All in all, this adds up to a total delivery of no less than 6 million (!) books a year with an additional 2.2 million books on loan.
Renting the right roll cages helps in the proper handling of bulk. Using 4 sided or even lockable security roll cages minimizes loss or theft. This led to a 99% delivery rate to our customer. Of course, this also includes minimising damage to materials. The roll containers supplied also ensure that school books can be stacked correctly.
Minimising idle roll containers saves unnecessary costs. Especially when 90% of the turnover is generated in one month (August). The year-on-year just-in-time delivery of rental roll cages to our distribution partner has therefore created a lot of trust. We are proud of this and look forward to being involved in this large-scale and unique process for years to come.
Roll containers are one of the cornerstones of distribution due to their versatility. As such, it is also one of the spearheads of Rotomrent. A diverse range of products on Rotomrent underlines this and can offer a solution to many challenges. Bart Welten, sales & international key account manager at Rotom, is proud of the case and the cooperation with the client:
