Safety and savings with high friction trailer flooring

ISSUE

Logistics must keep rolling forward

The need for land-based logistics is on the rise. Transporting heavy goods, such as resources and materials for industrial use, must be smooth and timely to meet the production schedules, for example.

Logistics companies want to keep their truck fleets moving and optimize their processes while ensuring safe working conditions.

 

BIOFORE SOLUTION

Adding friction adds value

With smart material choices, trailer manufacturers can significantly add value to their customers. Material qualities, such as friction coating on the trailer floor, help optimize logistics processes and generate cost savings for the entire trailer lifespan.

With a built-in friction coating on the plywood, trailer manufacturers do not have to invest in in-house coating processes. Logistics operators’ savings, on the other hand, come from faster loading times and reduced material costs. A smooth and consistent flooring also improves loading safety.

WISA®-TopGrip replaces disposable friction mats

UPM’s WISA®-TopGrip Evo 2 is solid birch plywood with an integrated high friction coating. Designed for durability and safety, the flooring solution is a sustainable alternative for traditional friction mats that are subject to wear and tear and slow down loading operations.

In fact, WISA®-TopGrip Evo 2 plywood generates up to €9,500 in total time and cost savings for logistics companies over a single trailer’s lifespan. Applied to entire vehicle fleets, the savings really add up.
