Yodel is working with trailer makers Cartwright to develop a new safety gate system that is designed to reduce accidents from falling parcels.
The new safety feature is designed to stop parcels on staff when the trailer is opened. It consists of two bifold mesh gates that can be opened separately, thereby replacing the less safe standard fabric net.
Andy Johnson, director of health, safety, environment & quality at Yodel, said: “The health and safety of our colleagues is of the utmost priority and we are proud to have developed this new feature which means a safer working environment.
“Working with key partners, like Cartwright, is part of our ongoing commitment to think outside the box, as we develop solutions to help make the industry safer.”
