Barloworld invests £3m in hire fleet

Barloworld Handling is investing £3 million in 140 new diesel and gas powered Hyster forklift trucks for its short term hire fleet to meet growing demand.

Mark Ward, UK commercial asset manager said: “We have seen general market conditions improve over the last 12 months and strong demand return for our short term hire trucks.”

Barloworld reckons many businesses are looking to save money by operating smaller core fleets and drawing on short term hire units to cover periods of peak demand.
