Protecting Cargo During the Last Mile for the First Impression

 

Every day, new products are transported around the world on flatbed trucks, railways, and ships. They pass through a constantly-changing environment of both environmental and scenic materials. But according to Matt Peat, U.S. Director for Transhield, the majority of manufacturers don’t protect their cargo from those factors, and that can be costly.

“Most manufacturing companies, most items that ship down the road, they just choose to do nothing and that nothing leads to a dissatisfied customer,” Peat said. “It can also lead to the need to clean it up when it arrives at the customer.”

The extra time and resources needed to clean an item after shipping, but before delivery, creates an extra cost for the distributor, which is not simply financial.

“If the user is ready to receive that boat, and the dealer receives that boat, but has to do extra cleanup or repair, now you’ve got fatigue in that relationship,” Peat said. “There’s an issue that’s started, especially if you’re talking around, let’s say, Memorial Day or the Fourth of July, when it’s time to start boating.”

The old saying: an ounce of protection is better than a pound of cure, definitely applies here, with Transhield’s custom-designed coverings and protective products. With a scalable range from cars to HVAC units to locomotives to windmill blades, Peat sees a constantly flexible list of items that can (and should) be covered in transit.

“We can do, virtually, anything. We’re customizing the ‘garment’ for this machine. We’re customizing the cover that can accept anything that can be sewn onto it,” he said. “The thing is, you don’t notice what it is, because it’s big and white and covered. We do. We notice that, and we want other people to know more about it.”
