Retail/Commercial

Across the world, retailers have one thing in common: a constant and focused drive for profit. However, without predictable and reliable stock movement from the loading dock to the shelves, customers are simply unable to complete their shopping requirements and likely to move to another retailer.

One of the obstacles for stock movement in a retail environment could be the result of a freight elevator being taken out of service. Clearly there are many reasons for this action, but one of the most common is door failure due to accidental misuse by staff moving freight on and off the freight elevator. Malfunctioning freight elevator doors have the potential of creating immense problems for retailers. Without a fully operational freight elevator, stock doesn’t get on to the shelves in time, leaving retailers with disappointed customers and a forecast shortfall at the checkouts due to lack of spend.

If you are considering installing a new or replacement elevator, or just frustrated with your existing freight elevator’s performance due to door failures, Peelle could be the answer. This was the case for one leading multinational retailer with multiple superstore locations, who decided to move to Peelle, but not before a detailed and thorough comparison survey was carried out. This was to establish if a tangible return on investment based on an installation of Peelle freight elevator entrance doors at one of their locations could be assessed. To ensure the integrity of the survey, an independent and unbiased third party was commissioned to undertake the experiment. The results demonstrated startling like-for-like comparison and provided a compelling and financially strong case for changing the freight elevator doors to Peelle. Today, this leading multinational retailer has specified Peelle freight elevator doors for their new and entire replacement program for the company’s multiple superstore locations across Europe and other continents.

We would be happy to discuss the results of this survey and how best Peelle can help lower elevator out-of-service time due to elevator entrance door failures. Simply fill in your contact details on the enquiry form on this page and a Peelle representative will make contact.
