The Potter Group

On the right track

Leading rail freight logistics specialist, The Potter Group, has installed a CopriSystems canopy to allow undercover discharge of weather-sensitive goods.

The Potter Group handles imported goods as diverse as lard, chipboard and paper from all over Europe. Prior to completing their new rail-connected warehouse, discharging these weather-sensitive goods was a slow process.

CopriSystems has installed a 45m long canopy system that straddles the heavily used onsite tracks and connects to existing buildings. The canopy was five metres high to allow it to house rail wagons from Switzerland whilst unloading large rolls of paper into store.

“Since opening our new rail-connected warehouse, the CopriSystems canopy has been instrumental in improving service to our customers. It also gave us an excellent head start in handling our customers’ paper products”.
