Whitemeadow Furniture Ltd is an independent manufacturer based in Nottinghamshire with an enviable reputation for the supply of quality furniture to its nationwide network of independent retail outlets.  As a forward thinking company how to best serve their customer base is critical to both their reputation and future expansion, hence product delivery is a very important consideration.

Given the daily challenge of all manufacturer’s Whitemeadow Furniture required a transport system which would enhance their ability to deliver their products cost effectively to any of their retailers in the knowledge that it would arrive in the same immaculate condition as when it was completed by their skilled workforce. 

The delivery method of choice for Whitemeadow Furniture was the introduction of a bespoke build demountable body system manufactured just down the road in Derbyshire by Abel Systems Ltd. 

The demountable system is based on DAF LF chassis which operate with interchangeable 9800mm long, high cube box van bodies with streamline curved roofs to improve fuel economy and lightweight body panels to maximise payload.

The use of a demountable system enables the bodies to be loaded during normal working hours, but more importantly it removes pressure from the loaders who are able to ensure that every piece of furniture is packed in such a manner that it will arrive at its destination undamaged.  In line with this philosophy of packing their products with great care, the bodies are fully carpeted on the deck and front bulkhead, the rear up and over shutter is fully encased with drain channels to the underside of the body to ensure water on the shutter can’t contaminate any packaging, there’s an abundance of tie rails which will accommodate any combination of furniture and a second deck system to separate product into two levels.

Obviously given that the bodies are preloaded, this ensures the chassis are fully utilised as without rushing the driver can exchange bodies within a few minutes and be ready for the next trip.

Abel Systems Ltd has a long history of providing bespoke transport solutions to suit applications in many different manufacturing industries, hence there’s quite possibly something they can do for you!
