Logistics Team Keep On Moving With A Little Help From Their Friends
The Logistics department at a specialist orthopaedic hospital in Shropshire are keeping supplies moving safely and efficiently with support from MasterMover.
The machines are helping employees at The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital to move everything from medical equipment to food, waste, linen and more.
Two SmartMover SM100+ models, which were funded by the hospital’s League of Friends, are now making all the difference for a busy team of stores staff and porters.
Mark Evans, Logistics Manager, said: “The introduction of the MasterMovers has really made our working lives much easier – sometimes we can be pulling trolleys with loads of up to 500kg, which is a lot of weight for one person to take. We’ve found them to be especially beneficial when taking the patients’ food trolleys to the wards. We would normally need two members of staff for this, but with the MasterMovers we now only need one person plus the equipment.”
A SmartMover is able to push and pull loads of up to 1,200kg and has a range of features including various speed settings and an automatic braking system.
It also has the ability to operate on slopes and uneven ground – so is an ideal solution for use along the Oswestry based hospital’s corridors which are on a slope.
