nursery trolley make the plant nursery easier and more efficient
On the logistics side, nursery trolleys have made plant nursery easier to load and unload. Before this, plants were loaded by hand onto shelves in cardboard boxes instead of wire mesh trays that are used today.
Today, the nursery trolley shelves are adjustable to hold a range of different plant sizes. Once plants are ready for dispatch, trolleys are lifted straight onto the truck with a hydraulic tailgate system.
A job that took 2 hours, now only takes 20 minutes. On top of that, the plants arrive at the retailer in better condition and are unloaded closer to garden beds, which saves time and double handling and, in turn, minimises plant damage.
As growers know, systems such as nursery trolleys and shelves can differ depending on who you supply to, but making the right investment for your business will pay you back over time.”
