Special delivery for Stobart
21 November 2013
Eddie Stobart has placed a substantial order with Irish articulated forklift manufacturer Aisle-Master to provide a fleet of trucks for its Contract Logistics and Warehousing Division.
Twenty five Aisle-Masters are working in locations from Milton Keynes to Carlisle, and another ten are due to be operational over the next twelve months. The build quality, reputation for extreme reliability of the Aisle-Masters, and a "can do” attitude were all important factors in securing the contract.
The electric powered 20WHE models with 2000kg capacity are mainly used for inside operation to place and pick pallets that have been deposited in the goods-in bay by other forklifts or power pallet trucks. However their versatile indoor/outdoor capability means that at sites with external pallet banks they can also be used for offloading and yard work.
