PD Ports to enhance staff safety at Felixstowe warehouse with drone technology

PD Ports enhances staff safety at its Felixstowe warehouse with cutting edge technology, removing the need to work at height in order to perform important stock counts.

In particular, the logistics provider RAWView has been actively searching for ways to mitigate risks team members face when conducting daily tasks.

Stock counts were identified as a key area to implement technology, because they require staff to work at height on scissor lifts.

The company has worked with warehouse automation experts RAWview to implement a new drone stock counting system, the inventAIRy XL, to increase efficiency and accuracy, reduce risks and reduce carbon emissions.

PD Ports stock control and systems manager Jonathan Borg said, "The best-case scenario is always to eliminate the risk wherever possible."

He added, "Some pallet racking in our Felixstowe warehouse goes up to 8m high, which involves an element of risk because it involves our operatives spending a significant amount of time working at height on a scissor lift."

Borg also noted there’s been a significant reduction in health and safety risks since it’s eliminated the need to use scissor lifts in this warehouse for counting stock.
