SFL Mobile Radio is pleased to be working with DHL Supply Chain, supplying hand-held two-way mobile radios and accessories to its warehouse in Edge Lane, Liverpool.
When DHL approached SFL to look at its existing communications flow, we conducted a site survey of the warehouse to see what system would work best, how it would function, how many radios and what range was needed.
The logistics specialist was using company mobile phones to communicate as packages were transferred throughout the various stages of the warehouse which was causing numerous problems.
We suggested implementing ten non-display Motorola DP4400 radios, complete with ten spare batteries, ten leather holsters and four lapel mics – allowing the drivers hands-free access.
The Motorola DP4400 series was chosen for its reliability and durability and its powerful range with information needing to be communicated from the wagons at the front gate, to the drivers loading goods to the warehouse workers packing parcels.
DHL reports that the technology has increased the efficiency of the operation as well as improving health and safety.
