Transport carts and material trolleys

The right material, at the right time, at the right place.



What is a transport cart / material trolley?

Transport carts and material trolleys are the central element of intralogistics for the provision and intermediate storage of goods. They are mostly characterised by a compact and robust design and have wheels (e.g. swivel casters) that are adapted to the load as well as to the place of use.

In industrial production, material transport with route and trailer systems based on the MILKRUN PRINCIPLE is becoming increasingly popular and is now replacing conventional transport methods such as forklift trucks in many cases. Milkrun is a concept of procurement logistics to provide material according to demand. The concept is based on the basic idea that material is only replenished in the quantity that has been consumed. This ensures that the right material ends up at the right workplace at the right time.

Various versions:

  • Carts / utility carts / material trolleys / transport trolleys / order picking trolleys with storage levels
  • Carts / utility carts / material trolleys / transport trolleys / order picking trolleys with textile shelves
  • Carts / utility carts / material trolleys / transport trolleys / order picking trolleys for hanging parts
  • Heavy duty profile trolleys
  • Tugger trailers and milkrun trolleys

Good reasons for modular transport carts and material trolleys

For an optimal transport, not only the bridging of distances, but also an optimal storage of goods plays an important role. Aspects such as transport safety bring additional requirements to the design of a transport cart.

Due to the large number of different articles, workpieces and products that have to be transported within a company, the modular system is perfectly suited for the realisation of individual carts, transport trolleys, order picking trolleys, workshop trolleys and tugger trailers. Each cart can be customised in terms of its dimensions (length, width and height), number of shelves, load capacity (heavy kg capacity) and ESD capability.

Components of a transport cart

Since carts and especially tugger trailers are often subjected to higher stresses and heavy loading, high-quality square pipe systems are used in most cases. In addition to extraordinary stability and individual storage capacity, these offer a high degree of flexibility.

When designing a material trolley, you can choose from a wide range of accessories. Special fixed or swivel castors make the cart mobile without negatively affecting the load-bearing capacity. Special panels (e.g. BEESave), fabric compartments or cladding provide optimum protection for your components during transport. We also offer drawbar and coupling systems that are compatible with common tugger trains.

Tips for planning a transport cart

Often the entire cart does not have to be made of square profiles to ensure stability. A square base frame forms a strong foundation that can be transformed into pipe racking systems via special joint elements. In this way, the advantages of both worlds can be combined.

In some cases, so-called shooter solutions are suitable. For example, material trolleys can be pushed up to a shelf, which activates an unlocking mechanism and the containers start moving automatically. This can drastically reduce the time needed for loading and unloading. The prerequisite for this is the use of roller rails.
