Pallet Truck Shop urge sports retailers to prepare for surge in demand thanks to summer of sports

This summer is set to be a sporting extravaganza, with the European football championships, the Olympics and of course Wimbledon all taking place over the coming months. Pallet Truck Shop, one of the country’s premier providers of pallet trucks and other manual handling equipment to a wide range of sectors, is urging retailers to invest in equipment to ensure they are ready to meet consumer demand for sporting goods.

As the weather improves, more and more people will be looking for ways to make the most of the warmer temperatures and get active. Coupled with the sensational summer sporting events that will be taking over screens throughout the coming months, the retail sporting industry is set to explode. Investing in reliable warehouse equipment, such as pallet trucks, means that multiple goods can be transported and packaged at any one time.

Phil Chesworth from Pallet Truck Shop said, “We have a fantastic summer of sports lined up, certain to entice and inspire different generations. Keeping active and fit is so important for people of all ages, so it’s great that these events are proven to pique interests. It’s been widely reported that this summer is set to be a scorcher, which will undoubtedly entice more people to take up activities. With this in mind, companies must make sure they have robust and reliable equipment in place in order to meet the demand from consumers so they can continue to provide a prompt and reliable service in order to meet their needs.”

After the last Olympics, which were held in London, the industry reported a significant increase in the amount of sporting goods sold. Likewise, after Andy Murray’s triumph at Wimbledon in 2013, the tennis world saw a surge in public participation of tennis right around the country. With the added Euro 2016 tournament taking place next month, this year looks set to be even bigger for sports retailers.
