Snow is on the way F-f-freezing! It’s F-f-February!

Welcome to the 1st February Warehouse Logistics News. Soon it’ll be time for hardy readers to brave the snow the forecasters promise us this month and head down to Sandown Park Racecourse for Logistics Link South, back for 2014 on Tuesday 11th and Wednesday 12th February. The event is legendary in the industry as a snow magnet, so place your bets on seeing a snowman in the car park.

chazMeanwhile we guarantee you three features in this issue, full of information from leading suppliers on Fork Trucks, The Loading Bay and Warehouse Flooring, to help you keep your warehouse in good shape this winter. Fork Trucks includes counterbalance trucks, side loaders, VNA, reach trucks and other specialist machines. The Loading Bay takes in doors, dock levelers and dock lifts. Warehouse Flooring covers floor preparation, maintenance, mezzanines, area markings and cleaning machines.

In our exclusive interview, Clarke Controls’ MD Clive Bodenham explains how their pioneering heating controls, designed and manufactured in the UK at Oldham, help lower energy costs for businesses operating in energy intensive sectors such as warehouses.

As WLN readers know all too well, keeping large industrial buildings warm in winter is essential for staff welfare and to ensure equipment remains unaffected by the cold. But with the trend for the winter freeze to go on for longer each year, keeping the heating on leads to significantly increased fuel bills. With energy suppliers hiking prices even further, now is a better time than ever to offset these costs by installing an intuitive Energy Management System (EMS) from Clarke Controls to manage gas blowers and reduce energy bills at a stroke. Clarke’s Web Control System enables you to control your systems from wherever you are.

With over 15 years’ industry experience, you can trust the Clarke Controls team to lower your energy bills at least 25%, with a guaranteed payback of under two years. Depending on your previous energy consumption, the results can be even more substantial. In a recent award winning installation Clarke’s innovative technology helped Jewsons builders’ merchants make average savings of 49% across 50 sites.

But it doesn’t stop there. In 2014 Clarke Controls is complementing its existing controls for industrial gas or oil heating systems by launching a web-based Automatic Remote Meter Monitoring system to help businesses reduce their electricity usage. It does this by by monitoring what goes in and out of each distribution board, so informed management decisions can be made about where to achieve savings. That should warm the coldest Finance Director’s heart this winter!

Have a successful month, and see you at Sandown.
