In the natural world, plants cannot seed themselves so they must rely on clever methods of transport to travel such as air, water, and by attaching to the fur of animals. The infamous dandelion is a great example of this with its lightweight feathery seeds that travel easier through the air and are often found attached to sweaters or tangled in hair. 

In the industrial world however where large volumes of seeds are required for seeding broad acres of farmland and seasonal crops for food and raw materials, seeds must be transported more efficiently in long haul shipments using air freight cargo holds and heavily loaded palette trucks and trailers for long haul journeys. 

In preparation for planting season, the logistics for seed transport for domestic producers requires considerable supply chain planning and freight capacity to ensure safe and effective delivery of seed bundles to rural sites. It also requires considerable lifting and rigging power to secure moving seed bundles in place. 

This is also prime season for delivering bulk order seeding, sowing, and harvesting equipment to Australian farms as they ready their fleets for another year. With planting season around the corner, the team at Titan Lifting Technologies are similarly busy behind the scenes, supplying lifting and rigging equipment to Australia’s farming and transport industries. 

Drawing on nearly half a century of industry experience and expertise, Australian owned and operated Allan Marketing developed its Titan brand of precision lifting and hoisting equipment to serve the Australian market and beyond. With a specialisation in chain blocks and lever hoists, Titan also produces load restraint equipment, lifting chain, shackles, ratchet straps, hooks, and wire rigging products. 

The local supplier is well-recognised for their robust and durable stainless steel that is precision made and have a wide range of applications across the farming and food production sector. 

According to Titan General Manager John Di Michele, “Considerable thought is put into every component the company supplies, with a focus on premium quality lifting and hoisting equipment that is rigorously tested from the point of manufacture through to the sale.”

“All of our products are designed and tested on Australian soil and compliant to all Australian Standards which means our products adhere to strict standards,” he explains. “Through the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association, we are a full member LEEA-accredited company which means our staff undergo comprehensive industry training. Additionally, all our stainless-steel products are AISI 316 graded.”
