Distribution & Logistics Industry Applications


Good logistics is the key to the smooth and efficient processing of raw materials and finished goods. At RWM, we help ensure our clients can keep their supply chains rolling along at the speed modern commerce demands. We manufacture a full range of wheels and casters explicitly designed for the fast-moving pace of warehouses and distribution facilities.

Casters & Wheels for Every Surface

Warehouses and distribution centers come in all shapes and sizes and can have a wide range of flooring for wheels to contend with. This can make it a challenge to find wheels ideally suited for the different surfaces you have located throughout your facility. In addition, this can make it difficult to find a “one size fits all” solution. Indeed, if you have multiple flooring surfaces, it is necessary to find the best fit for each surface, whether it is a finished wood floor, finished concrete floor, ceramic tile, vinyl, or asphalt.

Our wheel selector chart makes it easy to find the solution best suited to your needs. Whether you need a cast iron, Durastan, GT, hard rubber, high-temperature, or rubber wheel, you can select the option that delivers good or excellent performance characteristics within your facility.

We offer a broad range of wheels that deliver superior performance on most surfaces, including:

  • Cast iron wheels
  • Durastan
  • Elastomeric high tensile wheels
  • Forged steel wheels
  • GT wheels
  • Hard rubber wheels

Conditions & Characteristics

Warehouses, distribution, and transportation facilities are challenging environments. Oil, grease, solvents, alkalines, metal chips on the floor, and other debris can create considerable hazards and present significant obstacles. Our wheels are designed to keep your carts and equipment rolling no matter how much ice, snow, grease, or dirt they roll over.

We specifically design our wheels to deliver an optimal balance with ease of rolling, load capacity, floor protection, and resiliency at the heart of our designs, so it’s easy to select the RWM wheels or casters that work best within your environment.
