Instore's new Huddersfield distribution centre.
Atlet has supplied a fleet of 72 forklifts for retailer Instore's new distribution centre in Huddersfield, UK.

Instore's new Huddersfield distribution centre (DC) is part of an investment of more than GBP10 million (USD17.3 million) to streamline its distribution operations. It now has five Omni DCR man-up VNA stacker/pickers, seven Presto PLP pallet transporters, 37 Select PPL low-level order pickers and 17 UNS Tergo reach trucks.

Atlet has also supplied six LPG counterbalanced forklifts and around 100 hand pallet trucks to the DC.

The DC currently despatches more than 1,000 pallet loads or orders a day, with a retail value of around GBP1 million (USD1.73 million), to Instore's 330-plus stores across the UK.

Instore has undertaken a major restructure of its warehousing and distribution activities. It has consolidated several older warehouses into the new, custom-built, 32,500sq m DC in Huddersfield.

The value of the order was not disclosed.
