Hannover a perfect platform for Dutch rental supremos
In addition to its specialist machinery for specific uses, Dutch elevating platform and telehandler expert Riwal will also be showcasing its international rental credentials at CeMAT 2018.
Hiring elevating platforms is normally a complex business for international companies. In most cases, the usual language barriers are compounded by local customs and difficulties in maintaining an overview of all the regulations and safety requirements. Riwal International Rental (RIR), which has its headquarters in Dordrecht, is aiming to make platforms available in virtually every country in the world so as to ensure the global success of platform rental operations. Customers will even be able to use platforms simultaneously in different countries.
Riwal offers elevating platforms for a wide range of tasks, such as the installation of rack systems in new logistics centers or maintenance work and stocktaking in existing warehouses. The company's own global branch network and its use of partners should make it possible to find a solution almost any time and any place. The scope of services includes pre-rental advice, transportation, supplying platforms at the location of use and a 24-hour on-site technical service. Track & trace solutions are available, too, which should ensure equipment always remains on site and is operated exclusively by authorized users.

Fast and flexible docking
Dock levelers, dock shelters, insulated loadhouses, scissor-arm platforms, industrial gates and mobile loading ramps - BUTT GmbH is the first port of call for customized solutions for the entire loading industry. The company is showcasing the latest generation of its mobile loading ramps at CeMAT 2018.
The key to cutting-edge logistics surely lies in speed and efficiency, especially when it comes to loading and unloading trucks and containers. One of the main ways of saving time is to optimize loading conditions – but it’s not always possible to construct solid installations for this purpose. The time and effort that BUTT GmbH, a family-run medium-sized business with its own production plant, has plowed into addressing this issue has made it Germany’s market leader in mobile loading ramps. One of the company’s clearest strengths lies in its honed ability to customize the dimensions and features of its range of different ramp designs to precisely meet customers’ requirements. BUTT is showcasing the latest exciting development in its ingenious solutions at CeMAT 2018 in Hannover.
To further improve the speed and reliability of the loading process, the company has come up with a clever way of combining its electrohydraulic telescopic dock levelers with other manufacturers' mobile loading ramps. This both simplifies docking with transportation vehicles and eliminates the risk of dropped loads. What’s more, the special design also extends the drive width compared to conventional systems. The ramp can bear an impressive twelve metric tons and is quick and easy to operate using a multi-button control, so everything’'s swiftly in place for a forklift to get straight down to work on shifting the load.
