Ancra automates deck heights

Ancra Cargo has automated its integrated decking system, allowing operators to adjust trailer deck height at the touch of a button.

AutoDeck is described as the world’s “first and only automated decking system”, which the company says will reduce loading times by 20%.

Operators control deck heights using a control panel at the rear of the trailer, and forklift drivers can remain in their seats during the loading process.

A manual override option is available if power is lost for any reason.
