Logistics solution now available for small business
Small business is often plagued by a host of logistical problems, particularly
when they outgrow their warehouse space, or are unsure of how to use their
current space effectively, but material handling company Lencrow Group has come
up with a solution.
Recognising the need for small businesses with warehouse space to have access to
good advice on logistics, the company has launched a ‘kick-start’ package which
combines guidance on the most appropriate warehouse system with a suggested
range of equipment for hire or purchase.
This could include everything from a ‘rack and stack’ pallet system for a
printing company to take full advantage of high-roofed warehouse space, to a
small pallet truck for easy movement of goods from storage to transport for a
Ross Grassick, General Manager of Lencrow Group, says that many small businesses
fail to plan for their future materials handling needs, and so run into a host
of logistical problems.
“It’s usually very hard for the small business owner or manager to know what
their logistics needs are going to be: they’re great at their business, but
they’re not materials handling experts.
“This is why we saw an opportunity to share our knowledge with small business on
how they can ensure they are using their space effectively, are ready for the
future and have access to the latest equipment,” said Grassick.
One option for small business may include the new range of EP electric pallet
trucks, which come in a range of sizes and capacities and feature a number of
new ease of maintenance and safety features, including stability casters,
emergency power disconnect, and safety reverse and ‘dead-man’ braking systems.
Lencrow Group is one of Australia’s largest materials handling companies,
offering hire and purchase of a range of logistics equipment, as well as
forklift driver training.
The former companies that now operate under the new Lencrow Group name include
Nomad Lift Trucks, Pacific Rentals, Allforks Hire, Pro-fork Materials Handling,
Hilift Tailgates and Hilift Materials Handling.
