Truck-mounted forklifts offer increased safety, enhanced productivity and profitability during the COVID-19 crisis.

The Shamrock Handling Concepts team is committed to assisting customers cope efficiently with load handling and delivery solutions in the face of unprecedented challenges during the COVID crisis.

“As companies try to streamline business activities at this difficult time, it is even more important to take extra care to maintain pristine hygiene standards throughout the supply chain – including packaging, transport, unloading and storage of goods,” says Brenton Kemp, managing director, Shamrock Handling Concepts, distributors in Southern Africa of quality-branded materials handling equipment. “What’s critical right now – in every area of our lives – is to maintain social distancing and ensure hygienic business practices. The use of Moffett forklift trucks, which minimises the handling of products, certainly reduces the risk of contamination, product damage and injuries.

“Added to this, labour costs are lowered and turnaround times on-site can be improved by as much as 50%. The increased volume of deliveries contributes to greater profitability, improved customer service levels and also allows for a reduction of capital investment costs in your vehicle fleet.”
