Global radio communications specialist Simoco has been chosen to supply and install its Simoco Xd DMR (Digital Mobile Radio) system at Loscam’s pallet repair facility in Truganina, West Melbourne.
Loscam is an industry leader in pallet and container pooling solutions, working with both multinational and local companies to implement and manage pallet pools throughout Australia and Asia. Its multi-million pound purpose-built pallet repair facility in Truganina is the largest facility of its kind for the company, covering an area of 31,500sqm.
The order, which has been secured by Simoco Australasia, sees Simoco’s DMR mobiles installed directly onto the fleet of forklifts at the Truganina site, in addition to the supply of Desktop Base Stations for office staff.
Loscam workers at the pallet repair warehouse will use the system to effectively coordinate the day to day operations of the facility, with forklift drivers able to communicate directly with the office whilst operating through the 31,5000sqm complex.
Andy Woodhall, General Manager at Simoco commented: ‘Our challenge was to provide a future proof communications system, which offered all the advantages of open-standard DMR yet maintained the flexibility to evolve in accordance with their requirements. Simoco Xd offers a complete digital solution for Loscam, with a no-compromise approach to reliability, scalability, ease of deployment and reduced lifetime operating costs to meet the customer’s demands for robust communications.’
Paul Laurita, Site Operations Manager at Loscam said: ‘Simoco has an established history in providing quality, robust products for the transport sector, notably their work with Pacific National. With the guarantee of flexibility and scope for future enhancement, the Simoco Xd range offers us the perfect solution to facilitate effective communication and operation at our Truganina site.’
