More quiet night-time deliveries with K. Hartwall’s low-noise solutions

  • “The new cages were used for night-time deliveries to Wetherspoon pubs during the Olympic Games between the hours of midnight and 6 a.m. The lower noise levels were well received by staff and appreciated by local residents to such an extent that we didn’t receive a single complaint during the entire period of the Games.”

    The challenge

    K. Hartwall has been working in collaboration with DHL, redefining the A-frame roll cage. The main design aims were to reduce weight, fuel costs, CO2 emissions and noise levels making it more acceptable for residential deliveries at night.

    The solution

    Thanks to the new, revolutionary design of UK A-frame Classic Silent roll container the goals were achieved. On the latest JD Wetherspoon units noise levels have been reduced by approximately 15 dBA, and were trialled successfully during the London 2012 Olympics.
