Manual handling risks and inefficiencies
With high production rates, dairy processing operations are under pressure to optimise their material handling processes. Automated lines are often used within production, but once bottles and cartons of milk, or other completed products, are off the line and loaded into roll cages and other platforms, staff typically have to manually move them.
Manually moving individual loaded cages, or nested empty cages within dairy processing presents the risk of injury and lowers productivity, leading many facilities to look for a better solution…
Eliminate manual handling and maximise productivity
Enabling a single operator to safely move heavy loads, electric tugs eliminate manual handling, reduce the risk of injury and maximise staff productivity.
Whether it’s moving heavy cages full of products ready for loading, retail store deliveries or the movement of trains of empty nested cages back at the warehouse – electric tugs provide a safe, flexible solution.
The benefits of electric tugs in dairy processing
With electric tug solutions, dairy processing facilities maximise production output, increase efficiency and improve workplace safety.
With a single operator able to move the heaviest of loads, electric tugs allow staff to focus on more productive activities.
Keeping people safe
Reducing the risk of injury from manual handling and ensuring the safe movement of loads, electric tugs maximise workplace safety.
Moving more, made easier
Ideal for moving trains of multiple empty nested roll cages, electric tugs help you move more, maximising efficiency.

Your Questions, Answered - FAQs
Yes, with an expansive range of electric tugs available, our machines can push, pull and steer loads with total control.
Dairy processing facilities use our SmartMover range to move individual heavy roll cages, maximising safety and offering powerful capabilities to move loads securely on slopes.
For the movement of nested roll cages in the dairy industry, our AllTerrain range is a popular choice, allowing a single operator to move long trains of nested cages, maximising efficiency.
An optional remote control is also available, allowing the operator to guide and monitor the movement from the front of the cages, delivering total visibility and safety.
No, electric tugs do not require a license to operate. A license-free operation makes electric tugs an attractive option for food manufacturers looking to streamline the movement of loads and improve safety.
Minimal training is required to safely operate an electric tug and we offer training packages to suit every requirement.
Electric tugs are battery powered, with interchangeable batteries or lithium options available, electric tugs can deliver 24/7 operation to keep your processes moving.
Offering zero emissions from the point of use, electric tugs are ideally suited for indoor use.
A range of coupling options are available across the range that maximise performance, security and safety.
Custom coupling solutions can also be designed for unique applications.
