As many businesses across the country struggle to deal with rising labour and materials costs, the logistics industry is one that’s under particular pressure, says leading manual handling experts, Midland Pallet Trucks.
Warehouses are key players in the nation’s supply chain but, in recent years, many have been dealing with a spike in operating costs that has made it difficult to remain profitable. These costs have been more pronounced since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and are expected to only increase further during the coming months.
Midland Pallet Trucks, a UK supplier of warehouse equipment such as
pallet trucks, lift tables, and aerial work platforms has noted the steep prices of energy and commodities which is driving up the costs of building, maintaining and running warehouses. As rent increases and pressure mounts up, warehouses are in desperate need of effective cost-cutting strategies – one solution is buying the correct machinery at cost-effective prices.
Phil Chesworth, Managing Director of Midland Pallet Trucks says, “Everyone is having to deal with soaring prices at the moment, including warehouses. It’s costing more than ever to attract staff, buy equipment and pay for the energy that keeps your warehouse operating. These price rises show no signs of slowing down so it’s up to warehouse managers to do what they can to keep costs low and remain efficient.
At Midland Pallet Trucks we stock high-quality equipment at affordable prices. Our machinery is built to last, and we encourage our customers to perform regular checks and maintenance to make equipment last longer and avoid costly replacements or repairs.”
Midland Pallet Trucks ship stock from their centrally located UK warehouse and focus on providing customers with long-lasting, high-quality equipment that can deal with the most demanding warehouse environments.
From basic pallet trucks for transporting goods around the warehouse floor, to accessories that make order picking smooth and efficient, the UK supplier offers an all-in-one solution for warehouse managers trying to keep costs low without compromising on quality.
