Industry Solutions

An interesting fact about forklifts is that they span across many different industries. Everyone that has a box or product to move needs a forklift at some stage, and we know just which one is the right one!


The e-commerce era is upon us, where speed, flexibility & efficiency are key factors of success. Retail and wholesale e-commerce customers have very clear expectations: prompt delivery and additional resources during seasonal sales peaks or campaign periods. When combined, these individual factors require storage and order picking with maximum flexibility. Our tailored e-commerce solutions are able to cater to the demanding needs of e-commerce businesses.

Our experience with companies from the e-commerce space has a large ranges from different product categories. We have provided solutions for businesses from start-up right through to national scaling. The relationships that have been built and forged have extended through to new ventures or expansion of old. We have seen the likes of Brands Exclusive, Marley Spoon & Showpo to name but a few, grow from single machine applications to complete fleets.


Third (3rd) Party Logistics (3PL) changed the logistics space for many businesses and can be considered a 'standard procedure'. 3PL services, for those out of the loop, include any logistics activities outsourced to another business: warehousing, transportation, cross-docking, inventory management, packaging, and freight forwarding. Many companies reach out to such providers in the hope that they can reduce costs and headaches, however struggle to find a 'good 3PL'. We have even seen cases where clients are returning from 3PL back to inhouse operations or are simply outgrowing their requirements for the 3PL.

Understanding 3PL, the players and conditions within the industry is something our team is well versed with. We have an understanding from the 3PL perspective, and the requirements to setup and maintain fleets, racking and associated solutions as well as the customer perspective in relaying the requirements to the 3PL and managing them. Additionally the migration either to or from the 3PL is something we have great experience with.

We can provide you with support and solutions for your supply chain with your storage, transport, MHE and everything else required to future-proof your logistics processes whether you are a 3PL or someone seeking their services.
