Future Freight Networks : Yearbook 2018
9 FUTURE FREIGHT NETWORKS 2018 COMPANY PROFILE X COMPANY PROFILE Loscam footprint In 2017, Loscam celebrated its 75th anniversary since its foundation, as well as the opening of two new repair facilities in Richlands, Queensland, and Erskine Park, New South Wales. These two new facilities, which are strategically located within close proximity to many of Loscam’s major local customers, allow significant expansion of repair and storage capacity for these states and are complemented with brand- new machinery. In addition, to meet the growing expectations around quality and product diversity in the Australian marketplace, environmental protection elements are incorporated into the facilities to uphold Loscam’s pledge to be an eco-friendly enterprise. Collaboration creates innovation Loscam was successful in being awarded a contract to design a foldable bin solution for a major retailer for one of its fresh protein applications. The customer’s main focus was to have a quality bin with greater capacity, and that was durable, easy to maintain and cost-effective through their ‘Just-In- Time’ protein supply chain. Loscam worked collaboratively with the customer and all aspects of their supply chain, including their suppliers, production facility and wash facility, to ensure that the bin design took into consideration all handling and production environments of the cycle. This included being load-compatible with other branded bins in upstream supply chains. More specifically, the functional requirements included ease of assembly, ease of interlocking during stacking, ease of cleaning, and ease of flow through the production environment. Loscam has worked closely with its manufacturing partner to ensure that the process was iterative and collaborative to meet these functional requirements. Loscam has now delivered a high- quality, high-performing and cost-effective foldable bin that has a static load capacity of 2.5 tonnes and can sustain 700 kilograms of product. Critical to the success of this solution was the collaborative manner in which all supply chain participants contributed to the design, development, trial and production to endorse the industry innovations delivered in this new foldable bin.
