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.

Now that Congress has issued another highway funding Band-Aid – a $10.9 billion highway bill through next May that former Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood blasted as “totally inadequate” – what can we expect as the infamously do-nothing 113th Congress winds down in the next month before taking yet another recess to prep for the mid-term elections?

Seasonally-adjusted (SA) for-hire truck tonnage in July headed up 1.3 percent on the heels of a 0.8 percent increase in June. The ATA’s not seasonally-adjusted (NSA) index, which represents the change in tonnage actually hauled by fleets before any seasonal adjustment, was 133.3 in July, which outpaced June’s 132.3 by 0.8 percent, and was up 2.8 percent annually.

Volumes for the month of July at the Port of Long Beach (POLB) and the Port of Los Angeles (POLA) were mixed, according to data recently issued by the ports. Unlike May and June, which saw higher than usual seasonal volumes, due to the West Coast port labor situation, July was down as retailers had completed filling inventories for back-to-school shopping.
