ASC’s Jason Frendo finds a dust solution for Sydney’s STS Logistics

Updated on Monday, July 27, 2020

Logistics & Distribution

STS is a well-established Sydney based logistics company specialising in freight forwarding and customs clearance. The company has a comprehensive network of agencies and branch offices in New Zealand, Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Shanghai and Taiwan.

STS recently enhanced its reputation by investing in a Heavy Duty ASC dust free Eureka M6 LPG sweeper in their new $20 million Sydney facility.

The Challenge

STS Logistics had a big problem with swirling external debris, forklift tyre black dust and incoming truck dust that spread over the facility daily.

Management went to market and invited many sweeper suppliers to quote and demonstrate their sweepers in order to find the best solution to achieve a dust free facility.

They had a unique problem in the sense that their dust was super fine, spread quickly and they insisted on a robust machine that was able to handle the rough working conditions typical of a distribution centre.

After a lengthy exercise the company choose ASC as their preferred supplier.

The Solution

STS Logistics chose to invest in the Heavy Duty ASC M6 LPG sweeper.

The machine was chosen due to its strength, sweeping and dust control performance.

Although 20% more expensive than comparative models, the company’s  engineers in their investment decision carefully considered all aspects of the ASC M6’s build quality and simplicity.

Long term, the ASC Eureka M6 will prove to be the cheapest on the market due to its low running cost and anticipated 15+ year lifespan.

Amortized financially, the ASC M6 makes it by far the cheapest on the market when both purchase price and running cost are considered.
