Quietly does it
23 January 2013
The new 50,000ft2 ASDA retail site at Romford, which is located in a residential area near an apartment block, has been equipped with a BT Lifter Silent from Toyota following complaints from local residents about noise
The BT Lifter Silent is specifically designed for applications requiring quiet handling of goods as noise levels from the truck do not exceed 60 decibels (dBA), which is approximately the same volume as two people talking.
Keeping the Romford store operating from 7am until 10pm six days a week requires deliveries outside of regular business hours.
Varn Ullyart, head of assets, ASDA, said the Lifter Silent "enables deliveries to take place during unsocial hours without compromising the wellbeing of local residents".
