Fully customised fleet ticks every box for Pentagon Freight
17 August, 2021 by Tom Peace
Pentagon Freight has taken delivery of four new Hyster forklift trucks to help bolster operations at their Dartford warehouse hub. The new trucks are all fully customised to meet specific working requirements on site and have been configured to maximise efficiency and operator safety.
As part of the product configurations, various safety and performance features have been applied to each of the trucks. These include a full steel operating cab, customised fork heights, lowered overhead guards and non-marking tyres for the indoor trucks.
As a global leader in delivering freight forwarding and logistics services, Pentagon required a new approach to their industrial equipment to help manage workflow and stay on top of demand. The trucks will each perform a specific role within Pentagon’s operations, such as working within containers, indoor environments and transporting goods across a busy site. By tailoring each machines’ configuration to match up exactly with its working environment, Pentagon will be able to maximise productivity and precision, both of which are crucial within the freight and logistics sectors.
Bruno Ambiel, Briggs Equipment’s Regional Sales Executive, commented: “We’re delighted to have completed this delivery to Pentagon Freight Group. Throughout the process we have worked collaboratively with their team to understand requirements and supply a solution that ticks every box. This includes the supply of suitable equipment from our hire fleet to cover the short period from initial order to delivery.
We have worked closely with our manufacturing and technical partners to develop configure each truck and ensure they fit seamlessly into their operations. As a new Briggs customer, we’re looking forward to working closely with the Pentagon team and ensuring they get the most out of their new equipment.”
Keith Sayers, General Manager, Southern Region, Pentagon Freight, commented: “We have found Briggs to be professional, knowledgeable, and fully transparent in supplying a bespoke end to end solution for our business needs. This included a detailed advance site survey to determine machine workloads and workflows, resulting in a well-designed fleet configuration to support our current and longer-term needs.
“Pleasingly Briggs have also remained fully engaged with Pentagon in an after sales capacity, to ensure we have the right support when and where needed. We look forward to engaging in a long and beneficial working relationship with this new partner.”
