Thorworld Industries is advising companies on the benefits of renting mobile yardramps as a short-term option for meeting capacity during peak periods such as Christmas, pointing to the successful example of farming and vegetable packing business Strawsons Ltd in Newark.

“Spikes in productivity provide an essential boost to a company’s turnover, yet dealing with such increases depends on having the loading and unloading infrastructure to deal with the additional capacity,” explains John Meale, Managing Director of Thorworld Industries.

The mobile yardramp is the ideal solution because it can be rented for a fixed period. Strawsons is a sizeable operation, and while its permanent site has dedicated loading bays, Strawsons utilises a satellite site in the weeks leading up to December to deal with the increase in output of its fresh pre-packed vegetables for supply into leading supermarkets.

“Yardramp rentals are a cost-effective and highly practical solution,” explains Billy Prince of Strawsons. “Thorworld’s service has been exceptional during our decade working together; we simply tell them how many ramps we need for the forthcoming season and Thorworld makes them available quickly and without fuss so that we’re well prepared for the Christmas rush.”
