The last few days in the UK have been crazy! Unexpectedly high levels of snowfall stopped many businesses in the South of England from operating for a whole weekend. It started around midday on Friday and after a couple of hours, it was barely possible to continue working outside. Dropping temperatures, snow, ice and wind made work difficult and caused many operations to fail. Safety, health and motivation of the employees were put at risk when the roads and yards became wet and slippery with limited visibility.

Shortly before Christmas, we received an urgent request from a busy warehouse in Northampton, UK. Not only did our customer require additional forklift capacity, but they also needed forklifts that could maneuver in tight spaces and which could reach pallets on high racks.

There are some conditions and occasions when your standard forklift truck just isn’t up to the job. If you’re operating on an unpredictable, uneven or unstable surface, Rough Terrain Forklift can save you countless hours and accomplish a multitude of tasks.
Utilized correctly, forklift attachments can substantially reduce material handling times and increase productivity, while also reducing your costs and ensuring high standards of health and safety.
Over the last two decades, electric forklifts have gained greater importance in the market. The key to this change has been regulations concerning noise levels and exhaust emissions in the workplace. Warehouse management has also changed dramatically. Much of the warehousing market is now indoors, aisles in warehouses have become narrower and shelves are placed higher – all to increase storage capacity within the warehouse.
We all need the right tools to do our job – and some jobs require the precision and power of forklift trucks. For a variety of reasons, not all companies wish to invest in the purchase of new or second-hand forklift trucks, which is why we also offer trucks for hire. Forklift truck rentals can give you the best of both worlds: increased productivity combined with flexible, lower cost investment.
We received a fantastic response to the special offers we recently sent to our long-term customers.

At PHL we love a challenge – and challenges don’t come much bigger than delivering a Kalmar Container Handler to a customer in Ghana! The logistics of moving such a large machine are complex and require careful planning and the granting of very specific permissions. Fortunately, at PHL this is all in a day’s work for us.
