Not Your Standard Dock Equipment


Discover the benefits of the Destuff-IT™ Product Line!



These innovative devices are unique to the market place. They are designed to aid workers who load and unload floor-loaded product in containers and trailers. Operators experience more throughput and greater handling capacity with less fatigue and muscle strain because of optimal positioning to the box wall.



It is common for a single person on a Destuff-IT™ to achieve a case rate in excess of 900 boxes per hour, depending on the size and weight of the box. Whether handling a single SKU or dozens, the Destuff-IT™ aids in getting boxes to the dock area for sorting and palletizing in an efficient manner.



Unlike telescopic belt conveyors that deliver product at a fixed height and lack an operator platform, the Destuff-IT™ safely positions the operator and boxed product at the optimal height for efficient ergonomic transfer out of containers and trailers. With its onboard battery powered drive system, the Destuff-IT™ and flexible powered roller conveyor can easily be positioned at any dock door.



Whether the objective is to reduce injury or improve productivity, the Destuff-IT™ is an excellent solution. With proven productivity gains that not only reduce unload time, but also reduce or eliminate demurrage charges, standby charges and drop trailer charges, the Destuff-IT™ can also reduce the number of doors needed for the unload operation with more trailer turns per door.



A receiving manager has this to say about the benefits his team experiences: "The ELS Destuff -IT™ has been an essential addition to our receiving process. We have increased our unload capacity, from 1 container per day to 3 containers per day, with most unloads taking 2 hours to complete. The containers vary with the amount of sku's from 5 to 75 per container. The Destuff-IT™ has allowed us develop a better sorting process, because of the continuous movement and variable speed settings. ELS DestuffIT™ investment has been well worth all of the effort to get it to our facility."



More supply chain logistics and distribution centers are seeking a solution to their manual handling of floor-loaded product in containers and trailers. The Destuff-IT™ Product Line assists the supply chain with its ergonomic features that enhance manual handling of product. The Institute for Ergonomics at Ohio State University, approached Engineered Lifting Systems Equipment Inc.

The data collected so far has been very promising, and ELS is looking forward to the completed, published report.
