When it comes to materials handling in the food and drinks marketplace, you need a partner that offers the complete package – robust equipment backed by service and support you can rely on.


Briggs Equipment, the exclusive distributor of Yale Europe Materials Handling equipment in the UK, uses its wide experience in this sector to tailor solutions to meet specific customer requirements. It’s a question of understanding not only the application, but also the customer’s commercial aims to arrive at a unique proposition that delivers high quality machines and a complete business solution in a tailored approach.

The capabilities of Yale’s core range of warehousing equipment are well established. Now, in the growth market of perishable goods, Yale is raising the benchmark for materials handling in chilled and frozen goods warehouses with the new MR series cold store reach truck and its powered pallet trucks.

Available in standard and narrow aisle versions and a variety of lift capacities, the cold store reach truck combines the class-leading features of the standard MR model with functionality specifically designed for the challenging conditions of temperature controlled storage, which can be as low as -30°C. From its heavy-duty construction to its high-specification, cold-resistant cabling and waterproofed electrics, the MR series is built to cope with extreme temperature fluctuations, condensation and ice.

If operators are comfortable and alert, they are able to maintain optimum productivity for longer. With this in mind, the cold store truck has been designed to ensure that drivers stay warm and comfortable in the enclosed, insulated cab fitted with a highly efficient heating and ventilation system and full suspension seat.

Thanks to modular construction, the cold store cabin and overhead guard can be easily removed and replaced for ambient temperature environments, helping to maximise both the truck’s flexibility and its residual value.

To back up the equipment performance, Briggs offers extra peace of mind through its nationwide team of 600 engineers – one of the biggest mobile engineering workforces in the UK – which is committed to a ‘first time fix’ philosophy. With the resources to deliver not only a swift response but also to maintain most makes and models, Briggs engineers can keep diverse materials handling fleets and plant and ancillary equipment operating at peak performance.

Whether your business is looking to lease or buy trucks outright, or needs a short-term rental truck to meet a spike in demand, talk to Briggs Equipment about a complete solution.
