Unilode Aviation Solutions, a leading service provider to the aviation sector, is the latest business to invest in electrification with Briggs Equipment following the introduction of electric Hyster trucks to their Heathrow site.
The new forklifts replace a fleet of gas machines and will allow Unilode to deliver on their sustainability targets and reduce environmental impact. Additionally, Unilode will benefit from lower operational and maintenance costs, underlining the long-term benefits of choosing electric.
The new trucks are already making a positive impact on-site, with positive feedback received from operators on their comfort, ease of use and extensive safety features.
Babak Yazdani, Chief Operating Officer, Unilode, commented: “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.”
Ben Creighton, Senior Sales Executive, Briggs Equipment, commented: “We are delighted to have completed this delivery to a new Briggs customer in Unilode. Right throughout the tender process, they have shown a clear commitment towards reducing environmental impact and delivering on their carbon footprint objectives.
“At Briggs, we are committed to helping our customers build an effective and future proofed carbon strategy that is capable of evolving with our customers. We are now looking forward to working closely with the team at Unilode to ensure they get the most out of their new trucks and keep delivering an outstanding service for their customers.”
