Linde Material Handling (UK) will supply more than 800 forklifts to TDG, a third-party logistics and supply chain management specialist, throughout the UK.

TDG works at almost 100 of its customers’ sites across the country.

‘Linde’s fleet management systems helps us optimise utilisation, but perhaps equally important is the support Linde can offer our operations, which enables us to pass on these efficiencies to our customers,’ said Jonathan Fletcher, TDG procurement director.

One way in which Linde is making the fleet more cost effective is through deploying high-frequency chargers through all of the electric fleet by the end of the year.

‘We now have an improved, cost-effective replacement cycle coupled to all our electric fleet using HF chargers,’ said Fletcher.

‘Deploying these chargers into the operation has reduced operating costs, reduced charge cycle times and reduced TDG’s carbon footprint through a more efficient use of electricity,’ he added.

Andrew Daly, sales and marketing director, Linde Material Handling (UK), said Linde has worked closely with TDG managers at all levels of the company, and at the different sites, to ensure that it was offering exactly what was needed.

‘We have now, for instance, asked each of the TDG operations or sites exactly what data it needs – and tailored our fleet management programme accordingly,’ said Daly.

‘This means the data will be used to make the operation as efficient as possible,’ he added.

TDG’s varied fleet operations include at least one of almost every type of product that Linde produces.
