ABP Humber has added four 10 T Carer electric forklifts as part of its investment in decarbonisation of its port operation equipment. 

ABP is investing over GBP2 million (USD2.43 million) to expand its fleet of electric forklifts, with a further 10 electric forklifts arriving later this year for the Humber Port’s general use. The investment also includes work to instal storage canopies and charging points for the vehicles. 

Humber director Simon Bird says: “ABP Humber has ambitious plans to deliver its port operations using renewable energy. Not only does this make sense from a business perspective, saving on escalating energy costs, but also enables us to support the delivery of sustainable supply chains for many of our customers, without compromising on efficiency, and, most importantly, safety.”

The new electric forklifts are equipped with an integrated rear-view camera to support terminal operatives to manoeuvre backwards safely, and the overhead guards are designed to facilitate high visibility in all directions.

Between them, Immingham Bulk Park and Immingham Fertiliser Terminal play a significant role in supplying the farming industry with fertiliser. The two terminals host bagging and blending facilities to ensure landowners get exactly what they need to keep their soil in good health, which in turn supports healthy crops.

The electric forklifts will be used to ensure the safe and secure storage of the product before it makes its onward journey.
