What the change in buying habits means for the pallet truck business

As Amazon has announced yet more growth, one of the UK’s leading providers of pallet and pump trucks has welcomed the news as it means significant growth for the industry, but warns businesses to ensure they are prepared for the demands this brings.

Midland Pallet Trucks, who have a long-history of providing pallet trucks to a variety of industries, have urged businesses to plan ahead and invest in quality equipment. As internet shopping shows no signs of decreasing, Midland Pallet Trucks is predicting a rise in demand for equipment, and as such, are advising those who think they might be affected by the increase in online sales to invest and prepare for the future.

The increased emphasis on online trade will put an enormous amount of pressure on warehouses and distribution centres, and it is up to the individual businesses to make sure they are able to cope with demand. Phil Chesworth, Managing Director of Midland Pallet Trucks, said: “Investing in quality equipment is vital for businesses to be able to meet the needs of their customers. The industry is constantly growing due to consumers’ buying habits, and as a result, we are always evolving to meet the needs of our customers. By investing in top-quality equipment such as hand pallet trucks and practical manual handling solutions like weighing scale pallet trucks with printers, businesses are future-proofing and ensuring they are able to provide a first-class service for years to come.”

The ease of online shopping is thought to be fuelling increased demand. It is now much easier than ever before to purchase goods from e-commerce websites such as Amazon, and as consumers get more accustomed to receiving goods within a day or two, demand for services such as next day delivery will increase and put pressure on distribution centres in a way never seen before.
