Mobile-PRO by Siemens Postal, Parcel & Airport Logistics (SPPAL) is a patented,
self-contained mobile workshop, housed in a 53 foot (16m) trailer. Mobile-PRO
is moved from dock to dock to refurbish, retrofit or repair telescoping conveyors.
Equipment serviced by Mobile-PRO receives a new warranty backed by Siemens,
including 24-7 technical support. Customers recognize remarkable value in
functional restoration rather than replacement of this critical equipment. This
transformation can be done by Siemens specially trained teams in as little as
24 hours, with the dock returned to normal operations.
Traditional repair or refurbishment work on existing telescoping conveyors is difficult
to complete without affecting adjacent docks, which tends to interfere with daily
operations of the whole parcel sorting centre. These repairs can even be dangerous,
because they require lifting very heavy loads and welding.
Siemens can functionally restore telescoping conveyors for less than half of the cost
of buying and installing new equipment. When it comes to a retrofit, such as adding a boom to improve productivity, cost savings are even higher.
Since launching in the United States, Mobile-PRO and Siemens have repaired or
refurbished over 2,000 telescoping conveyors built by Siemens and other
