Forest products handled
23 January 2013
MGM Timber (Scotland) has taken delivery of six Combilift 4-way forklifts for use in its locations across the country to improve the handling and storage of its wide range of forest products, such as structural and aest
MGM had previously used sideloaders and counterbalance forklifts to cope with the varying load sizes, ranging from palletised goods to 6m long packs of timber. The trucks' ability to work as a sideloader as well as a conventional truck plus the 4- way capability eliminates the need for multiple machines. Operations are speeded up as drivers no longer need to switch from one truck to another, and the number of forklift movements is reduced for enhanced health and safety procedures.
