Modified to meet requirements
12 December 2012
Leading logistics and supply chain provider, Primeline, has taken delivery of three AC electric Aisle-Master articulated forklifts, enabling the company to increase storage space at its distribution centre in Dublin b
After winning a new contract to manage a bonded facility for a wines and spirits business, Primeline was very quickly in need of additional warehouse capacity to accommodate the higher volumes of stock. By capitalising on the Aisle-Masters' ability to work in narrow aisles and excellent manoeuvrability, Primeline was able to cut down the width of the aisles needed by its old reach trucks. This allowed the rows of racking to be increased from 20 to 26 in the existing storage area, improving pallet density to such an extent that any need for costly and disruptive relocation could be avoided.
Lifting 1000kg to a height of 11.4m is a tall order for an articulated truck, but Aisle-Master engineers modified the design of Primeline's fleet to meet this requirement.
