Plastic trolleys

The trolleys or container dollies from plastic are ergonomic equipment used to move the euro containers, storage boxes, tote bins, stackable plastic crates, nestable plastic totes, stack-nest bins with bales arms/ lids/ rotation at 180˚ or 90˚, cardboard or corrugated plastic boxes, and, in general, any packaging that needs to be transported from one point to another, and eliminate the need for special handling equipment, automated or semi-automated.

They can be used in production, warehouses, distribution, logistics, deliveries in areas with difficult access and in case the trucks can only accommodate transport devices with small dimensions (no hand pallet trucks or stair climbers), in case there is no equipment available for indoor transport or the space doesn’t allow this kind of equipment to be used, as catering or food delivery logistic equipment, medical/ hospital applications, in postal services for parcels, moving companies, as a base for working stations where, for example, they can form stacks with storage boxes with frontal access or just be used for supplying the stations, distribution, in offices or various institutions, for effortlessly moving documents or other correspondence.

The dollies are made from very good quality plastic (ABS, PPC, PE, PP injected), and are designed to resist a long service life, being robust and sturdy.

One of the most important component parts of a trolley are the wheels. Basically, besides supporting the load and ensuring that the trolley will not break during the carrying-on of the application, they are the contact between the rolling surface and the platform, and also provide the work environment for the operators during the transport phase.

The dollies can be suitable for one application or another, depending on the casters’ quality and specifications which include:

  • the type of materials they are produced from (polyurethane, thermoplastic elastomer, polyamide)
  • the quality of these materials
  • the casters’ diameter
  • their model/ 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., and the hard ones work on soft flooring because they need less force to roll)
  • the rims’ material (plastic or metal)
  • if they have bushing or bearing
  • fitting and fastening with screw and nut or riveting
  • the maximum load on one single wheel
  • resistance to certain temperature ranges

Various combinations of the above options can be done to obtain the dolly suited for the specific application’s mobility, functionality needs, required efficiency, mandatory safety standards, aisle design (straight or with turns, the number and value of turning angles, the inclination degree, etc.).

Compared to their light-own-weight, they are very stable and have a high resistance to deformations and impact, making them suitable for any kind of application, from small loads to heavy-duty traffic and intensive daily use (even over 300-400 kg for some of the models).

The low own weight makes them compatible with hand maneuvering, the operators can easily handle them even without electric tow tractors or other electrical equipment, if necessary (for example to stack and de-stack them up to an ergonomic height).

The top deck is designed to ensure stability and anti-slip characteristics, to prevent the load from sliding and falling, offering protection and security for the carried load.

As main advantages, the ABS dollies have:

  • improved work efficiency, by shortening the time with load deliveries
  • fewer or no work accidents caused by heavy load handling, and, as positive consequences, lower costs related to medical leaves, better organization in production because the team is most of the time complete, with no sick leaves
  • streamlined delivery schedule when loading the orders faster for transport to end customers
  • for certain minimum quantities (MOQs), can be produced in other colors than standard, this helping the quick visual identification, or they can be separated per internal use (for example the gray ones are for purchasing, the red are for assembly, the blue are for storage, etc.)
  • with their help, the clients can use the same boxes and containers for different applications: without wheels when not needed, for simple storage or on pallets for transport, and placed on the moving dollies when they are needed for the internal transfer of the products between the working points.

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

In general, the closed-deck dollies have specially designed holes in the corners, so that when they need to be stacked when empty, the wheels are nested in those spaces, blocked this way to ensure perfect stability for the stack, no matter how high this is.

To all the models can be added a special attachment system drawbar/ hook and loop type, to connect them and form a convoy or a train. This way, larger-sized loads can be safely transported on short or long distances, attached or not to a tugger train, depending on the situation.

They can also have removable tug handles attached, for manual handling.

The plastic injected dollies respect the characteristics of the returnable packaging offered by Logimarkt:

  • 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 to small shops, dairy, agriculture, meat processing), in pharma (hospitals, pharmacy warehouses), for storage or as attractive display in retail shops or big chain hypermarkets, or in heavy industry sectors (automotive, metallurgical industry)
  • they can transport any kind of packed products
  • they can be safely used for many life cycles and are completely recyclable at the end of their service period
  • they reduce the carbon footprint and are eco-friendly by decreasing the total volume of waste
  • they reduce the storage costs and release the space for other activities, having a small footprint and efficiently using the vertical space
  • they optimize the total cost investments with packaging

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

They normally have 4 wheels, and are available in many versions, depending on the client’s request and application:

  • from PA (polyamide) – soft surfaces and synthetic rubber – for concrete flooring
  • all 4 casters steering
  • 2 steering and 2 fixed, without brakes or with foot-operated stoppers for the 2 fixed ones
  • with or without thread guards

Regardless of the material, the castors ensure a fast but smooth running on the surfaces, very low noise level, and, in general, are designed to resist various floor structures. In case they break, they can be changed separately, without having to replace the entire trolley.

Due to the swivel system, they can roll also on aisles with short turnings, having high stability in keeping the direction.

The plastic carts are available also on ESD conductive material for specific projects.

For clean and neatly organized working spaces, there can be used stacking trolleys as storage and transport accessories. They are compatible with dollies with an open platform and are useful to store them when they are not in use or when they need to be moved from one point to another. The running is smooth, has a low noise level, are fast, and the maneuvering is soft and effortless. Due to the sturdy yet simple design of the stacking system for transport trolleys, the stack has a higher stability grade, there is no danger of them falling and hurting this way the operator, damaging the items around, or just getting damaged themselves.

The advantage of using this kind of accessory is that, besides the optimization of the spaces, there can be stored more trolleys on the vertical, due to the positioning of the dollies along the central poles of the stacking cart. This means less space occupied with equipment, which is very important, especially in tight zones and working areas with less space, lower storage and transport costs, fewer trips when supplying the working stations, improved workflow, better productivity.
