Unilode Aviation Solutions are one of the leading service suppliers to the aviation industry. As part of a project across multiple sites, they required an overhaul of their existing materials handling fleet to help lower maintenance and operational costs without compromising on performance.
The new Hyster electric forklifts replace a previous fleet of gas machines and will ensure Unilode’s operators can work more safely and with greater
precision. By choosing to invest in electrification, Unilode are taking tangible action to reduce their carbon footprint and deliver on sustainability targets.
As the UK’s premier asset management and engineering services specialist, Briggs was able to support Unilode through every step of the process to
fully understand their requirements and supply an equipment solution that is tailored precisely to meet their demands.
Unilode are planning to roll-out a switch to electric materials equipment across their MRO network. Analysis of this new fleet’s performance at the
Heathrow site, will help provide valuable insight and information ahead of this wider implementation.
“The new electric trucks supplied by Briggs Equipment are a fantastic addition to our industrial equipment fleet. The new equipment is cleaner, greener and more
efficient, helping our operators complete their work with greater precision. These are more productive forklifts with zero emissions that will help us to continue
reducing our carbon footprint. Over the coming year more stations in our MRO network will be making this change to further enhance the sustainability of
Unilode’s ULD solutions.”
