The UK food and warehouse/distribution sector has hailed TCM’s best-in class FB 3-wheel electric forklift as a boost to productivity and energy saving. Launched last year the new truck has seen successful uptake by businesses looking for agility, safety and lower operating costs. TCM’s FB/FTB 3-wheel counter-balanced forklift is based on three key features; safety, operator comfort and fuel efficiency. It offers the lowest energy consumption within its class, achieving a measured 4.2kWh/h energy consumption. It also has the benefit of being configured for different battery options.
Crucial Sauce, the Birmingham-based sauces and chutneys manufacturer upgraded its trucks to the new TCM agile electric forklifts and added extended lift capability to meet their 4.5M racking height. Further North in Hull, Alpine Fine Foods is a food wholesaling service, supplying businesses supplying caterers with ambient, chilled, frozen, fresh meat, fruit and vegetables and non-food products. They have agreed a 5-year agreement with TCM dealer Barek to lease the new 3-wheel FB electric trucks.
