Palletline has invested £750,000 in a replacing its forklift truck fleet at its new central hub in Solihul.

The replacement scheme is set to be phased over the next 12 months and is being managed through Barloworld.

Palletline will be taking delivery of new Hyster H2.0-3.5FT Fortens series trucks.

Mark Pulford, operations director, said:  “We are maintaining a close focus on efficiency across all our processes to match the cost, safety and operational improvements already achieved at our new hub.

“For our new forklift fleet, we were looking to achieve optimum levels of reliability and performance, together with advanced technology for reduced wear and tear, and improved ergonomics for our operators. We believe these new models will give unprecedented levels of reliability and reduced cost of operation, helping us to deliver significant operational savings.

The trucks were also chosen as they are designed to reduce operator fatigue and increase productivity, he added.
