Palletline refreshes forklift fleet with Linde Material Handling

12 July 2023/Categories: Logistics & Supply Chain, Operations Management

Following a £3.5M deal with Linde Material Handling, palletised freight distribution network Palletline is refreshing its forklift fleet with energy efficient models. 

The new forklifts offer improved energy efficiency and will generate a saving of over £100k over five years, whilst reducing carbon emissions by 26.8Kg per day.  A total of 78 new forklifts including 10 all electric models will operate across London, Birmingham and Coventry hubs.

The forklifts will be fitted with a hook-on weighing device courtesy of B&B Attachments. Palletline has been working with both Linde and B&B Attachments on this project for the past 18 months to ensure the best possible solution for Palletline’s individual needs.

Graham Leitch, Group Managing Director of Palletline commented: “We are extremely excited about this partnership with Linde, with plans already in place for the future of the Palletline fleet.

“We are currently working with Linde to investigate the use of hydrogen fuel cells in forklifts to further reduce the environmental impact of forklifts whilst at the same time reducing fuel costs.

“Hydrogen is expected to be a significant opportunity for this partnership and we are hoping to be one of the first to introduce a hydrogen fuelled fleet of forklifts in the industry further reinforcing our market leading position in the marketplace.”
