Boosting operational efficiencies
Leading UK intermodal freight company, Freightliner, is boosting operational efficiencies across its 13 inland rail sites with a new fleet of ten Hyster reachstackers, supplied and maintained by Briggs Equipment.
Freightliner currently operates Hyster equipment supplied by Briggs, but this new £3.5 million deal sees the company replacing some of its older machines.
Peter Thompson, chief terminals engineer, Freightliner, said: "Briggs was awarded this key contract because of its commitment to providing a safe and reliable solution in a challenging environment."
The company moves containers from the deep-sea ports of Felixstowe, Southampton, Tilbury and London Gateway, operating approximately 100 daily services across the UK and handling more than 770,000 containers per year.
Its existing fleet of Hyster reachstackers has clocked up in excess of 18,000 hours during a five-year period of operation.
Under the terms of this new contract, Briggs will provide 24-hour service call-out cover six days a week plus a UK parts stockholding facility.
The new generation Hyster RS4531CH reachstacker not only complies with Tier IV Final engine legislation, but Hyster's energy-efficient technologies to help deliver fuel savings of up to 25%.
All ten of the new reachstackers are fitted with the Hyster Tracker wireless asset management system, enabling Freightliner to monitor asset activity, individual driver performance and promote driving best practice. Meanwhile, the service level agreement will be managed using Briggs' market-leading online asset management tool, BE Portal.
