Stockyards require precise planning to ensure the optimum use of machines and associated conveyor systems. No two yards are the same due to material storage requirements and topological restrictions. Careful consideration at the conceptual planning stages is essential to minimise the necessary number of stockyard machines, conveyors, transfer points and associated equipment. 

Incorporating 'off the shelf' of 'modularised' designs can significantly reduce the capital cost and timescales of building a new plant. Experience shows that stockyard layouts are finalised before

the availability of existing design machines, the costliest components of any project, have been explored or considered, thus committing plant owners to the significant cost of bespoke design equipment.

The capital cost of achieving a well-planned system can be minimised and mitigated by establishing client requirements at the earliest point in project planning. To this end, Ashton Bulk provide consultancy services and a range of available and modularised designs.
