Description of solution to prevent snow and slipperiness at Lineage Logistics
Snow and slipperiness are definitely a thing of the past at Lineage Logistics in the Belgian village Ieper. Since the inauguration of the DC in mid-2008, snow and slipperiness have been a problem throughout the year due to moisture penetration. After years of problems, Lineage Logistics, in collaboration with the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU / e), has analyzed the moisture problems. The origin is attributed to the many logistics movements that take place 24/7 within the busy logistics DC of Lineage Logistics.
In mid-2015, Lineage Logistics (at that time still called Partner Logistics), Air In Motion was called in to solve the snow and slipperiness problems through moisture entry at their DC in Ieper (Belgium). After providing a test setup, Air In Motion has developed the total concept whereby all dock shelters are equipped with a drying installation. This drying installation not only ensures that the moisture intake into the freezer is greatly reduced, but also that all additional problems caused by moisture entering in a freezing climate disappeared like snow in the sun. After several warm and humid years, it has been proven in practice that the solution realized by Air In Motion solves the moisture problems 100%.
