Get More from Your Warehouse, Workers and Infrastructure with a Portable Power Source


October 23, 2012

When you need a portable power source, you need convenience, not worries. Unfortunately, worries are what come with most of the available choices. Some require a power cord that might present a tripping hazard. Gasoline generators are noisy and unwieldy, emit fumes, and can only be used outdoors. Many battery packs are too weak and/or don’t last long enough between charging.

Now there is an alternative which is far more versatile: a stand-alone portable power package (PPP) capable of supplying clean, seamless AC power for as long as 12 + hours. The ability to power your existing equipment (i.e. scale, label printer, PC, etc.) anywhere within your facility means you have the flexibility to bring power to where the work is. What does this mean for your business? Fewer footsteps to complete tasks, improved accuracy of task execution, fewer workstations needed and higher volumes and throughput for existing facilities and equipment.

OCEMA says it has placed a priority on working with other stakeholders to find operational solutions that will help U.S. exporters, carriers, and marine terminals prepare for the implementation of the SOLAS Verified Gross Mass (VGM) rule.

The first quarter is typically the slowest period of freight demand for LTL carriers. With a few notable exceptions, that was reflected in first quarter earnings reports of the major publicly held LTL carriers.
