Chiltern Cold Storage Group's warehouses are challenging environments for forklifts - as well as ambient and chilled stores, the British company operates cold stores and offers logistics services in temperatures between -22°C and -24°C. To ensure that their business can keep moving without downtime, Chiltern relies on its long-standing partner UniCarriers.
1,200 pallets are delivered daily by the company, which uses a fleet of 22 UniCarriers trucks for materials handling. However, the partnership goes much deeper than the machines on the warehouse floor - UniCarriers has helped Chiltern with comprehensive advice and consulting for major projects and new truck acquisitions.
In such harsh environments and with such high demands, truck reliability and uptime is Chiltern's key requirement. If you want to find out more about our partnership with Chiltern, click the button to read the full case study.
