Lower Costs and Improved Safety
One of the nation's leading casket manufacturers turned to Surefitters to completely transform their loading and delivery process, starting with the vehicles at the very heart of it. Their existing loading operation was time-consuming, presented a number of ergonomic challenges, and had resulted in a number of worker’s compensation claims. Plus, their existing vehicles were heavy, expensive to operate, and couldn’t carry as much product as desired.
Using an innovative lift and loading system, Surefitters was able to improve safety, cut load times, and double cargo capacity, all while staying under 10,000 lbs. Lightweight solutions and an efficient chassis combined to improve cost per mile, eliminate weigh station stops and CDL requirements, and lower maintenance costs.
