Oakland International has invested in a fleet of Narrow Aisle Flexi articulated forklift trucks at its Redditch chilled and frozen facility.
The trucks enable Oakland’s forklift operators to load and unload vehicles, and deliver palletised loads directly to racking in one smooth operation. As a result, double handling is eliminated, delivering significant cost reductions for the company.
General manager Ed Ross said: “Our investment reflects the company’s overall approach to reducing costs and delivering improved value that will directly benefit Oakland customers. It also takes into account our desire to support Oakland employees, by providing state of the art equipment to help them undertake a range of materials handling operations, with the end result improved operational functionality, flexibility and efficiency.”
