Jofson Mitsubishi has secured a new contract hire deal with Jiffy Packaging, to supply seven forklift trucks to its distribution centre in Winsford, Cheshire.
Warehouse manager, Dave Alexander, said: “We operate a 24/7 system, so need arrangements to cope with sudden peaks in demand or technical problems at any time.”
The new Mitsubishi fleet includes a specially customised RB14K reach truck, with hydraulically extending forks and a remote control camera to guide drivers to the back of Jiffy’s 9.5m, double-deep racking bays.
Alexander also said: “The combination of AC technology and a high capacity battery on the reach truck has enabled us to do away with the spare battery.”
The other six trucks are the latest Mitsubishi FG15N counterbalance models.
