Every year, billions of containers are shipped from port to port in containers. There are millions of container movements annually worldwide. 40% of which are packed from top to bottom with one and the same product. Unloading these floorloaded containers costs time and money. Because the containers are loaded without pallets, they can only be unloaded manually. This involves a lot of labour to unload the boxes or bags from the container. and make them ready for transhipment or storage. This system works.but.
If you regularly deal with unloading containers. then you area aware of the bottlenecks this process. Your employees have to do a heavy and ergonomically irresponsible job. by manually unloading the goods from the container and processing it. You expose your employees to physical riscs. and your company to potential sickness and reintegration costs. Damage.or the disappearance of goods is a real threat. Mistakes can be made in processing the load.
What’s more, unloading containers costs a lot of time and money. Is there no other way? There is! This is why we created: TEUN. TEUN is the name of a new concept. which will revolutionize emptying freight containers. It is a tailormade on site service, which unloads containers fully automatically. We take care of everything.
From transport to the storage or delivery of your goods. This means your company is our starting point. We do everything in terms of unloading and parcel handling. And we ensure seamless integration with your network, no matter the WMS application you are currently using. A container is unloaded with the help of the PIQR1. The PIQR1 is an unmanned machine, which unloads a single SKU fully automatically. The same machine stacks the boxes or bags on pallets. and, if required, wraps them in a plastic film.
Thereby stabelizing the load on the pallet. On request, the machine can attach a barcode label to the pallet andor the load. for quick storage placement in the correct space in the warehouse. But we go even further. Because if required TEUN offers a service covering the entire unloading process. from customs control up to and including registering and processing the goods in your Warehouse Management System. And TEUN even provides a service whereby goods can be delivered directly from the container to your customer.
If the final destination is already known. This means fewer transport miles. so that together we make an important contribution to reducing CO2 emissions. The TEUN PIQR is unmanned and drives itself from dock to dock. It fits into a container and removes the goods. It palletizes them independently and wraps them, if desired, in film. What’s more, the PIQR is seamlessly integrated in the WMS.
And communicates effortlessly via a barcode of RFID tags. An ingenious vision system. guarantees that the PIQR sees the goods and faultlessly removes them from the container. even if they are unbalanced or fallen over. And with a view to insurance issues, the entire process is monitored. Via this system, customs can also supervise the procedure in real time and carry out checks. That saves time and money! The complete concept is available as a tailormade service.
A Snowboarders Unbelievable Tiny House
Mike Basich was a snowboarding pioneer. But after hundreds of competitions that brought money and fame, he went in search of something different. ROCK MUSIC PLAYING Welcome. Thank you. It’s such a rush just to get up here. MUSIC PLAYING When did you first get into snowboarding? My mom was always looking for something different and fun for us to try out, so that’s how we.
Discovered it. And the sport had no rules. And that’s where that kept us in it, because no one was telling us what to do. Oh! Ouch! From 7 to about 14 years old, I had epilepsy. And so being different than everyone else, you felt at home. That’s something my parents drove into me every day, saying it’s OK to be different. I just tackle things that way. MUSIC PLAYING Well, welcome.
Wow. This is the inside. It’s beautiful. How long did it take for you to build this place? It took me five years two and a half years to do all the rock work. I think I moved about 175 ton of rock. Every piece of cement was hand mixed, and gathered the water for it by hand, as well. God, it’s such a labor of love. You get to do fun things. This is actually a shower here. And it’s a seat in the daytime.
But you get to use it’s a bit camping style. No shower curtain, just out in the open. Pouring water, sitting down. MUSIC PLAYING I’ve got a little oven, which the door’s from the junkyard. And bought a nice little fireplace, which is my cooking, heating water, warming the place. So that’s the central attention for the utilities. Yeah. This is it. Where are you getting your water?.
Yeah, this is creek water, which I have two creeks on the property. Mike, where do you sleep? I’ve got the loft as my bedroom very different than anywhere else I’ve lived. I go to bed with the sun, and I wake up with it. I don’t feel like I’m trying to race time. In a city, you always feel like you’re on a rat race. And here, it feels like you’re in sync with what’s actually happening. So this was your dream. Since you were a little boy, you’ve been wanting to do this. This is my dream and reality, 40 acres to do whatever I want with. It’s really fun.
MUSIC PLAYING Tell me when you first started getting into that competitive circuit. Competitive circuit was right off the start. The World Cup, traveled the world a bunch I’d be in a different country almost every weekend. Worked my body hard. I was making about $170,000 a year. Played it pretty smart. I bought my first house, 4,000 squarefoot house huge because I went for the American dream. I bought the big house and had a fancy car. It didn’t do anything different for me. It just took up time.
We started getting sponsors that didn’t have anything to do with snowboarding. You started dealing with people that didn’t really care about your imagination. I let go of the competition 15 years ago, at least. I do a lot through photography through snowboarding, so that’s been my outlet versus the competition. And that’s how I end up in the back country. MUSIC PLAYING Where did the decision come from to build this place off the grid? Nature inspires me, and that’s why I choose this kind of environment. I want to learn how to live off the grid, have appreciation for nature, and how to keep the rain off my.
