Offering over 17,000 items from its product portfolio and operating from eight strategically located distribution centres, Spicers is one of the UK’s largest wholesale providers of stationery and office supplies. Following acquisition by venture capitalist firm Better Capital, Spicers wanted to improve efficiency and reduce cost in its MHE fleet – and after an extensive tendering process chose a fleet of new Crown equipment, all fitted with the innovative InfoLink® fleet management system.
DSV is a global transport and logistics specialist with offices in over 50 countries. The company has been testing three of Crown’s new WT 3000 rider pallet trucks at their Neufahrn site near Munich. Neufahrn is a high volume distribution hub for one of Germany’s leading pharmaceutical retailers, turning over 1,700 pallets during each two-shift working day between 6.00 a.m. and 1.00 a.m.
In an effort to provide customers further flexibility and capabilities for managing their forklift fleet and operators, Crown, one of the world’s largest material handling companies, today announced its Crown InfoLink® forklift fleet management system has moved to the Cloud to offer a flexible two-tier platform that will allow the software to be easily scaled as customer fleet management needs grow and mature.
