Plastic trolleys

The plastic trolleys or container dollies are ergonomic equipment for moving Euro containers, storage boxes, tote bins, stackable plastic crates, nestable plastic totes, stack-nest bins with bale arms/lids/cross-stackable, cardboard or corrugated plastic boxes, and other items that need to be transported inside a facility. Trolleys reduce the need for more expensive automated or semi-automated handling equipment.

Plastic trolleys can be used in production, warehouses, distribution, logistics and deliveries in areas with difficult access and for trucks that can only accommodate transport devices with small dimensions (no hand pallet trucks or stair climbers). Useful when no other equipment is available for indoor transport or space doesn’t allow larger equipment, e.g., catering or food delivery, medical/ hospital applications, post services and moving companies. Also viable as a mobile workstation add-on, using stacks of boxes with frontal access. Lastly, trolleys may be used for transporting documents or supplies inside office buildings.

The dollies are made from high-quality plastic (ABS, PPC, PE, injected PP) and are designed to resist a long service life.

Possibly the most critical components of a trolley are its wheels. Besides load capacity and resistance in time, it is crucial to run smoothly and silently to ensure easy handling and a comfortable work environment.

The dollies’ applications vary with casters’ quality and specifications:

  • The material they are produced from (polyurethane, thermoplastic elastomer, polyamide)
  • The quality standard of these materials
  • Casters’ diameter
  • Type: fix (rigid) – rolling only forward and backward, swivel – can turn around 360˚
  • Marking or non-marking
  • With or without brakes
  • Compatibility with the rolling surface: soft wheels are suited for hard surfaces – hardwood, tiles, asphalt etc.; hard ones work best on soft flooring as they need less force to roll
  • Rims’ material (plastic or metal)
  • Bushing or bearing
  • Fitting and fastening with a screw and nut or riveting
  • Maximum load per wheel
  • Resistance to temperatures

By picking and choosing according to the project’s needs, a fully adapted dolly is prepared to meet the requirements: mobility, functionality, efficiency, safety standards, aisle design (straight or with turns, the number and value of turning angles, the inclination degree etc.).

Considering their light-weight, they are very stable and highly resistant to deformations and impact. From small loads to heavy-duty traffic and intensive daily use – over 300-400 kg for some of the models.

The low weight makes them easy to handle without using electric tow tractors or other electrical equipment – even easy stacking to reachable heights.

The top deck is designed to ensure stability and anti-slip properties.

Main advantages of the ABS dollies:

  • Improved work efficiency – shorter time with load movements
  • Fewer or no work accidents are caused by heavy load handling – lower costs related to medical leaves etc.
  • Streamlined delivery schedules – loading orders faster for transport to end customers
  • Over a certain amount (MOQs), they can be produced in custom colors for quick visual identification; color coding can improve internal workflows

The models may vary, from a simple closed-deck trolley to the frame type with guides for ALC boxes/ nestable or double stackable, usually used in distribution.

Usually, closed-deck dollies are designed to allow stacking, even if wheels make this seem improbable. Special slots in the corners of the platform allow stacking and ensure stability. No wheels rolling on upper levels.

All models can be fitted with a drawbar/hook and loop type to connect them and form a convoy. This helps safely transport large loads over short or long distances, with or without a tugger train.

They may also come with removable tug handles attached for manual handling.

The injected plastic dollies meet our standards for returnable packaging:

  • They are produced from high-quality material, resistant to chemicals, acids, bio-contaminants or other substances, and they can be washed and sanitized with industrial washing machines
  • They are compatible with applications from high to low temperatures, food-related (bakery, food delivery, dairy, agriculture, meat processing), in pharma (hospitals, pharmacy warehouses), for storage or as attractive display in retail shops or hypermarket chains and heavy industry sectors (automotive, metallurgy)
  • They can be safely used for many life cycles and are entirely recyclable at the end of their service period
  • They reduce the carbon footprint and are eco-friendly by decreasing the total amount of waste
  • Stackable – they reduce storage costs and free up space for other activities by using vertical space mostly
  • They optimize the total cost investments with packaging

Plastic trolleys can have various Euro dimensions, being compatible with any Euro base container, single or mixed with smaller bases – 600×400 mm, 800×600 mm, 1200×800 mm.

Usually, 4 wheels, depending on the application:

  • From PA (polyamide) for soft surfaces and synthetic rubber for concrete flooring
  • All 4 casters steer
  • 2 steering and 2 fixed wheels, without brakes or with foot-operated stoppers for the fixed ones
  • With or without thread guards

Regardless of the material, the casters ensure fast but smooth running on surfaces, very low noise levels, and good durability on various floor types. In case they break, they can be replaced individually.

They have both excellent maneuverability in tight turns and stable direction in straight lines.

The plastic carts are also available on ESD conductive materials if needed.

 Stacking trolleys may be used for better organization and movement of stacked dollies. Smooth and silent – they’re surely the safest way of handling stacks. Both for personnel and dollies.
