Palletline eyes latest innovation with next-generation tracking facilities

Our network freight distribution partners, Palletline, have launched their next-generation scanning system, Palleteyes - revolutionising the industry’s freight tracking capabilities.

Integrated into Palletline’s new forklift truck fleet, Palleteyes utilises the latest in CCTV technology, wide-aspect barcode scanners and event processing to deliver the most advanced levels of visibility and traceability in the palletised freight industry.

The £2M investment forms the latest part of Palletline's commitment to continuously improve and enhance its services through the development and implementation of cutting-edge innovations.

As shareholder members of Palletline since 1995, Browns leverages network resources such as shared technology platforms and best practices, to optimise efficiency, transit times and rates, focussing on what truly matters for our customers.

Palleteyes is already delivering improved levels of quality control, at the point of unload and reload, eliminating inaccurate scans, improving safety and speeding up sortation processes across its hubs by more than 15%.

The system activates within two metres of a pallet, scanning the barcode and displaying important delivery information including bay location for the forklift driver. Simultaneously, two HD CCTV cameras are activated which record a close-up and wide angle video of the pallet’s entire journey from unload to bay to reload, giving members full visibility of their freight via a cloud-based portal.

The system also integrates with the forklift’s onboard systems to monitor driver performance and operational productivity, and weighs each load, sounding an automated alarm to prevent drivers from lifting a pallet weighing more than 400kg above a height of 1.2m – in-line with the latest double-deck trailer loading guidelines from the DVSA, HSE and other regulatory bodies.

David Brown Jnr, Browns Managing Director, said: 

We were fortunate to run a BETA phase on the Palleteyes project, and were blown away at the quality, innovation and most importantly, the positive customer response. Palletline are continuing to innovate and provide unique improvements and value, giving Browns customers enhanced peace of mind and faith in the quality and reliability of our service.
