Hyster took the opportunity to talk about its ship-to-shore-to-shop-floor concept, when it appeared at this year’s Logistics Link North at Doncaster racecourse, which was co-located with the new Port to Shelf exhibition for the first time.
Sales manager, big trucks, at Hyster, Ing Chris van de Werdt, said: “We don’t just sell products, we sell services, from the containers, to the warehouse and everything in between.”
Van de Werdt also took to the stage to deliver a seminar on Hyster’s partnership with Briggs Equipment UK.
“We chose to work with Briggs in the UK because not only do they deliver the service we require, but they don’t limit themselves to just lift trucks, they work on everything from roller-doors to dock-levels,” he said.
“With Briggs, we can work on meeting all customers’ requirements, tweaking machines when needed.”
Apex Linvar were at the Logistics Link to display its full range of products, with regional sales manager, Ian Child, saying: “the primary reason for us being here is to show the market that we offer various storage solutions and not just the traditional racking and shelving.”
Other exhibitors included AIDC Solutions, which launched its new warehouse management system, AIDC-WHM.
Now fully RFID-enabled, operations director, David Myers, said the new system delivers the best of both worlds.
“Our latest WMS is fully customised and built in-line with the user’s business rules, processes and priorities, but comes at an off-the-shelf price,” he said.
Industrial flooring specialist, GRF, and mobile solutions provider Spectralink both took the opportunity to meet new customers.
Other exhibitors included leading names such as BS Handling Systems, inotec Barcode Security, Linkx Packaging Systems, and Flexi Narrow Aisle.
