Gruppo Grendi has added 21 Yale trucks
Logistics provider Gruppo Grendi has added 21 Yale trucks, ranging from counterbalance trucks to order pickers, to its warehouse in Cagliari.
With a history surpassing 190 years, the family-owned Gruppo Grendi transformed from freight forwarders in 1828 to become a company of transporters, ship-owners and terminal operators.
The Cagliari order was delivered by Yale's exclusive dealer for Sardinia, Manitech, through a long-term rental agreement.
"Yale solutions have fulfilled our needs for a fleet working 24/7, with long battery duration for applications such as shelving storage and container loading," explains Emanuele Demetrino, Gruppo Grendi warehouse manager.
Luca Pibiri, sales and marketing manager of Manitech, says his company proposed a wide range of Yale electric trucks, such as reach trucks, which offer all-round visibility and flexibility; horizontal and vertical order pickers, designed to allow quicker and more accurate order picking of materials; and platform pallet trucks, which optimise productivity in horizontal transportation and loading and unloading of vehicles. "It has been an extraordinary success," he adds.
The company has benefited from increased productivity and a greater return on its materials handling fleet investment. "We are totally satisfied with our decision to select Yale solutions," says Demetrino. "Manitech understood our specific needs and provided the best solutions for our company. The reliability of the Yale brand, with equally reliable trucks, was enhanced by the constant service and attention to us as a customer. With our Yale trucks, we have been able to reduce our maintenance costs, which has resulted in time savings and an overall productivity increase," he concludes.
