New lift trucks
Published:  21 February, 2014

Multimodal logistics and freight forwarding specialist Maru International has taken delivery of its first Cat Lift Trucks after trialling machines from four different manufacturers.

UK distributor for Cat Lift Trucks, IMPACT HANDLING, secured the order after Maru International found the Cat machines combined the best driver comfort with the optimum fuel efficiency of the four brands tested.

The new Cat GP25N counterbalance trucks join a fleet of nine materials handling machines which are used in the company’s 80,000 ft² warehouse in Dewsbury, supporting deliveries bound for customers across Europe.

Maru International’s managing director, Vaughan Woolfitt, said: “Impact Handling went out of its way to be supportive. We were able to take our old trucks out of service and replace them almost immediately, without any downtime affecting the business.”
