The back of store operation is at the heart of any successful retail unit – be it the unloading of deliveries from suppliers or the movement of goods to storage ready for the replenishment team to rotate and re stock shelves.
It is responsible for the flow of goods – playing its part in the supply chain, ensuring on shelf demand is met, with goods in the right place to be sold.
As the UKs largest manufacturer of electric vehicles with over 30 years experience, Bradshaw Electric Vehicles have a good understanding of what’s needed, general manager, Simon Clipsham explains.
“We have specified and supplied equipment to major retailers for use in both the back of store and RDC environment. Of course a common factor is the need for a vehicle that will operate safely and efficiently and the Bradshaw range ticks these boxes as standard.”
“A frequently specified vehicle for this environment is a load carrier capable of carrying pallets. Our FB3000 is one of the few units on the market designed to carry 3 pallets, with a 3000kg pay load capacity. As an electric vehicle and only 1.3m wide, it has the flexibility to operate in restricted areas, both internally and externally.”
An electric vehicle provides an energy and cost efficient option, plus with no emissions it’s kind to the back of store team and the environment.
Vehicles can be supplied with a range of bodies, either open or covered if there is a need to protect the goods in transit and adapted to allow a towing function, making the vehicle more versatile and capable of undertaking additional tasks, such as the movement of waste and recycling – reducing downtime.
Bradshaw supply electric vehicles to handle; waste, recycling, goods, equipment, products and people to a range of industry sectors – across transport, rail, manufacturing, leisure, events and retail.
