With sustainability becoming a driving force behind consumer purchasing decisions, companies need to ensure that they’re take the appropriate steps to lessen their environmental impact in all aspects of their supply chain, including in their warehouses, says leading material materials handling provider, Midland Pallet Trucks.
According to the European Logistics Supply Chain Sustainability Report, “almost 80% of respondents say that reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in the next five years is a key focus area for their environmental initiatives”, and “28% of companies include ESG targets as obligations for supply chain partners to meet in their contracts”.
Phil Chesworth, Managing Director of Midland Pallet Trucks, says, “With sustainability becoming increasingly important, warehouses need to be doing all they can to lower emissions. One way to achieve this is to ensure they’re using renewable electricity to power energy-optimising materials handling equipment”.
Midland Pallet Trucks provide warehouses with a range of high-quality material handling equipment, including – electric pallet trucks, weighing scale trucks, and high lift pallet trucks. Their equipment runs on highly-efficient lithium batteries, that allow for maximum operation time, before they need recharging. As a result, the amount of electricity needed for their operations is kept to a minimum.
Phil adds, “In addition to our low-emission pallet trucks, we also offer a range of other material handling equipment that is designed to improve efficiency and reduce emissions. Our high lift pallet trucks allow warehouse managers to maximise vertical storage, allowing businesses to rent smaller warehouse spaces, which means they can cut down on energy usage. Our goal is to help warehouses achieve their sustainability objectives while also improving their bottom line.”
Optimising efficiency and reducing costs are crucial for businesses, alongside their ongoing efforts to lower emissions. Investing in first-class equipment can help companies achieve both their environmental and financial goals.
