Next gen trucks for Walkers

,

Leeds-based Walkers Transport has taken delivery of new generation TCM trucks fitted with monitoring equipment that will allow the trucks to be tracked and monitored.

Mark Fletcher, Walkers commercial director, said the plan was to focus on efficiency and effectiveness, rather than just cost reduction. The on-board monitoring system allows data to be collected at both truck and driver level to observe movements, behaviours and efficiency as well as the all-important health, safety and welfare of warehouse teams.

The trucks were supplied by Sheffield-based TCM dealer, CAM Forklifts. Fletcher said: “For us reliability is a big factor, we can’t afford to have trucks out of action unexpectedly, so they need to be durable and robust while being underpinned by exceptional levels of service and support”.
