The countdown to Christmas is officially underway. It won’t be long before families up and down the country are sat down to their Christmas dinner, having opened their presents. But to get to this point, companies along the supply chain will have their work cut out, fulfilling orders in time for the big day. One company is calling on businesses to ensure they’re well prepared for the Christmas rush by investing in high-quality material handling equipment.
Although Black Friday and Cyber Monday are over, December marks one of the busiest months in the calendar for businesses operating in the retail sector. From supermarkets and high street brands to distribution centres, additional pallet trucks can help alleviate the stress of this time of year and ensure seamless operations.
Phil Chesworth, Managing Director of Pallet Trucks UK, says, “This time of year marks one of the busiest and most profitable stages for many companies. All hands are on deck to ensure the Christmas period runs smoothly so that businesses can deliver the best possible customer service while reaching their targets. Here at Pallet Trucks UK, we have a range of material handling equipment available to improve productivity and efficiency levels all along the supply chain”.
A weighing-scale pallet truck, for instance, can significantly hasten work processes. In many warehouses, goods and consignments must be weighed before they are either stored or distributed. Usually, this means they are transported to a weighing area where they’re unloaded and then weighed before being moved to their next destination. With a weighing-scale pallet truck, goods can be moved in transit, speeding up operations and improving productivity.
The addition of a few extra manual pallet trucks can significantly bolster work efforts, increasing productivity without causing energy bills to spike. Electric pallet trucks, too, can help businesses ensure they’re prepared for the run-up to Christmas, allowing staff members to unload goods and shift pallets with ease.
