Newcastle Systems' Mobile Powered Cart Handles Temps as Low as Minus 4 F
Haverhill, MA (June 15, 2022) – Newcastle Systems, Inc., a pioneer in the mobile powered industrial cart industry, has developed a new supply chain tool for increasing productivity in refrigerators and freezers where cold temperatures are the enemy of battery life.
The company explains that its new EC-Polar series can provide power for hardware such as rugged computers, barcode printers and scanners for up to 16+ hours in temperatures as low as minus 4 degrees Fahrenheit.
According to John O'Kelly, CEO of Newcastle Systems, "We've developed a power system optimized for refrigerators and freezers. The Polar mobile powered cart will serve industries that have not had this option before, such as food and beverage, as well as pharmaceuticals. For these industries, supply chain tasks can now be performed at their most efficient and effective warehouse locations."
Newcastle Systems carts have long supported facilities to scan and label goods directly at the pallet or on the dock, allowing most companies to double their productivity, reduce labor costs by up to $10,000 per worker annually and increase receipts by up to 60%. With the EC-Polar series industrial carts starting at about $3,200 per unit depending on configuration, most companies see a return on investment in less than six months.
O’Kelly explains, "We know the country is experiencing serious supply chain issues right now. We are proud to hear from customers that our carts help increase warehouse efficiencies and safety."
For example, Langham Logistics, a third-party logistics and freight management company based in Indianapolis, shared the following statement about Newcastle Systems' carts: “We’ve been using our mobile powered workstations for over a year now and I can’t even explain the difference it has made in speed and accuracy when scanning and labeling goods coming in and out of the warehouse."
