ACS&T the Frozen Foods storage and distribution company, invests in new fork truck computers

Barcode-IT supplies 38 additional DLoG fork truck mounted computers to ACS&T
Released: 15th August 2013
Publisher: Dash Computer Products LLP

ACS&T is a major provider of storage and logistic services to the frozen food industry. They have seen a marked increase in expanding business and new contracts over the last six months and this has prompted a further investment in fork truck mounted mobile computers to manage the work flow.

Barcode-It has worked with ACS&T to integrate DLoG rugged industrial truck mounted computers to their ERP system.  These computers direct drivers to the next task and monitor the work in real time, which has dramatically improved efficiency and reduced errors.

The fork trucks used by ACS&T have to work in the deep cold store at temperatures of -27C, then seconds later be working in ambient conditions of up to +25C. This means that the DLoG computers are having to cope with a massive range of temperatures, plus the challenges of a very rugged working environment. Fortunately DLoG computers are designed for rough and tough environments and are designed to work in cold stores are even lower temperatures.

ACS&T will now have 76 fork truck fitted with DLoG MTC 6/10 computers and operators can communicate with the system using touch screen controls, even though they are wearing heavy freezer gloves. Barcode-IT created special on screen keyboards so that users can still work efficiently in the Arctic conditions.
