Freight forwarder Woodland Group has added 12 Jungheinrich forklift trucks to the fleet at its Coventry distribution centre.
The trucks supplied through Jungheinrich partner Armill include, an all-electric combination of one vertical order picker, four counterbalance trucks, four pallet trucks and one reach truck. The new trucks double the existing fleet of Jungheinrich material handling equipment at the Coventry distribution centre.
Luke Fermor, global fulfilment manager, Woodland Group, said the new trucks had has already made a big difference to picking rates. “Compared with the previous process we had in place, we can now pick products up to 40 per cent quicker,” he said.
“Armill Lift Trucks had just 12 weeks to provide us with the trucks we needed, from our initial request, through to consultation and delivery; I don’t think there are too many other suppliers that could have met that.”
