Transport

We can help you reduce costs and damage during product transportation

Transport

At Talos, we understand that companies need to save costs and ensure damage-free, environmentally sustainable delivery of their goods. Both products and packaging are subject to a number of variables which must be accounted for when materials are being transported from A to B.

Transport simulation tests are tailored to the specific requirements of the client and are designed to alleviate the negative impact that shocks and vibrations have on products. This eliminates the need for expensive trial shipments, which also provides a positive knock-on effect for the environment by reducing emissions associated with such trials. Furthermore, transport simulation enables product packaging and transportation methods to be planned more comprehensively, possibly allowing you to fit more products onto each load carrying unit, utilise more appropriately sized vehicles or save fuel-related costs.

Our TX1001 Transport Simulator is also equipped with a data logger. Once placed on the pallet, this allows vibrations and shocks to be monitored and then replicates the larger movements to see how the pallet is impacted. The machine has been well received by our current customers, which include major glass producers from across Europe

Case Study – Ardagh Group

With 98 operating facilities in 24 different countries, Ardagh Group is a global leader in packaging solutions, specialising in glass and metal packaging, whilst championing innovation and sustainability. The Transport Simulator Ardagh currently has at its Doncaster site is used for the following purposes
  • The testing of new packs
  • The testing of problematic packs
  • The testing of trial packaging mediums
  • The testing of load securing techniques
  • The testing of non-glass goods
"The unit has allowed Ardagh to gain first-hand knowledge (including high speed video recording) of how palletised goods react during transportation. The static unit has enabled a risk free method of testing prior to putting new products on the public highway. Furthermore, the simulator is also used by our Metals business, carrying out similar investigations, and by our transport contractors for various commodities."
