Based in Redditch, AMCO, are a global logistics company providing high-quality and efficient freight forwarding, warehousing & distribution, and customs clearance. The company required a rethink of their materials handling fleet and a new approach to how they managed the performance of their fleet.


Following consultation with Briggs Equipment, which included detailed analysis of the site environment and operating areas. A mixed fleet solution that four Hyster forklifts, four ride-on pedestrian pallet trucks, four articulated Aisle Master machines and two pallet wrappers, was proposed. Given the multi-directional capabilities of the Aisle Master equipment, the requirement for multiple machines is reduced and ensures that storage space can be optimised.

All trucks are fitted with a telemetry system which aids operator safety and with safety being a huge priority in this industry, this functionality will make sure that any issues are identified quickly and ensure downtime is kept to a minimum.

As part of the telemetry system, the autonomous tracking technology will monitor the productivity and performance of the machines and ensure that no issues are being encountered.


Shaun Watkins, General Manager Warehouse Operations at Amco, said: “Price was important for us as a business, but it was the total package that Briggs offered which sealed the deal.

“The supporting lead times, capability of BE Portal & the safety features fitted, all together was a very attractive offer for us and we are delighted to have started a partnership which we hope can continue in the years to come.”

Niall Hession, Briggs Equipment’s Sales Development Executive, said:

“One feature in particular which was attractive to Amco was the BE portal – this is an online, fleet management service which allows customers to observe their forklift usage, whilst being able to manage their servicing and machine uptime with total ease.”

“We are determined to make sure that Amco get the most out of these products and the features included, such as the telemetry system. which will make the overseeing of the fleet far more straightforward.

“We very much look forward to continuing this partnership between Briggs and Amco. They are a growing company and I hope that this will allow for a long-term partnership, which will benefit both parties.
