Antalis has invested £7m in improving its logistics operation at its Coalville central distribution centre, with a seven-year contract with Linde.

The investment sees Antalis undertake a phased delivery of 200 forklift trucks, including very narrow aisle (VNA), K-range combi-trucks. In addition to the new fleet, Antalis is completing a warehouse redesign and introducing a new warehouse management system as part of a wider programme to future proof the logistics operation.

The new Linde VNA trucks feature a modular design concept, enabling bespoke specification for individual applications, and the functional cab design ensures Antalis employees can work in fatigue-free comfort and safety in the new trucks.

David Hunter, Antalis Regional Managing Director for UK, Ireland and Southern Africa, comments: “Our partnership with Linde represents a significant investment for Antalis, as we upgrade our operations to provide excellent service to our customers. With 800,000 deliveries of paper, packaging and visual communication products every year from our network of central and regional distribution centres, it is through investments like this that we an maintain the standards that customers expect.

“As part of the contract, Linde also provided ITSAAR accredited training to more than 100 members of staff, including refresher courses and VNA training. Investment in wide-opening fork-positioner attachments for Linde E25 electric counterbalance means that we now have improved capability for handling wide formats at the CDC, thus increasing efficiency and safety.”
