Materials handling specialist Briggs Equipment will be promoting port centric solutions at Multimodal 2016, the UK’s premier freight transport, logistics and supply chain management event (May 10-12). Briggs will be highlighting the scale of Hyster’s big truck capabilities, including its class leading ReachStackers. These combine superior manoeuvrability and handling speeds with no loss of power when at full capacity with demanding loads. Stage IV compliant, Hyster’s ReachStackers incorporate energy-efficient technologies to produce lower emissions and offer fuel savings of up to 25%, compared to previous models, significantly reducing lifetime cost. Hyster’s empty and laden container handlers are also designed and built to meet the heavy lifting demands of ports, docks and freight handling yards, whilst the lighter and more compact Hyster H10-12XM-12EC empty container handler has proven reliability and strength for the most intense applications and can help minimise costs in lower density container yards. Ian Tongue, National Account and Business Development Director at Briggs, said: “Multimodal provides an ideal platform to share how we are currently innovating in this sector. It also facilitates dialogue on the challenges industry professionals are now facing. We will also be showcasing our partnership with Hyster in developing customised, port centric materials handling and heavy lifting solutions along with our market leading fleet management tool BE Portal.” Driving operational efficiency and maximising productivity is critical. With a national network of over 600 engineers and engineering capability to service and maintain a wide range of equipment outside of forklift trucks, Briggs has a unique offering within the ports and terminals sector. Visit Briggs on stand 965 – 10-12 May at the NEC Birmingham – to discover how we are working in partnership with our customers to add real value to their operations.
