One of the primary concerns of businesses moving forward is the impact that their activities have on the planet. With global warming, fossil fuels, and overconsumption all being issues that business leaders are attempting to tackle, it’s important for everyone to do their bit – including warehouse managers.
Midland Pallet Trucks, a leading supplier of manual handling equipment such as hand pallet trucks, lift tables, and manual stacker trucks, encourages warehouse managers to do what they can to make their operations a bit greener by being more conscious about the equipment they use.
Phil Chesworth, Managing Director of Midland Pallet Trucks says, “Reducing your reliance on electric manual handling equipment is an important step towards energy efficiency in the workplace and a more eco-friendly warehouse. Manual handling equipment is just as efficient but requires no energy to power up, making it the perfect way for warehouse managers to not only save a few pennies on their monthly bills but also cement sustainable success for their business.”
Along with switching to manual handling equipment, the pallet truck supplier also encourages businesses to make other small changes to cut down on their energy costs and lower their warehouses’ carbon footprint. Simple things such as conducting energy audits, encouraging staff to turn off all equipment overnight, improving space planning, and creating airlocks to reduce drafts within the building can all make a significant difference to a business.
For businesses that want to take a greener approach, Midland Pallet Trucks offers a range of top-quality machinery that can be delivered straight away to your warehouse. With a range of lifting equipment that is suitable for any warehouse, it has never been easier for businesses to improve their efficiency at a price they can’t fault.
