The process was completed within a period of three months thanks to an integrated vision involving operation, procurement and sales to guarantee Agro Merchants Group a tailored agreement with a wide range of options at a local level. A selection of drivers were also invited to test the feel and drive of the forklifts. All trucks are delivered on lease hire, ensuring that all European sites are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment with proper performance.
All internal transport equipment is fitted with the fleet management system I_Site. Gerbrand Goede: “We have a large variety of companies, which is precisely why it is important to be able to report and guide based on facts. I_Site gives us insight into all aspects, ranging from maintenance costs to deployment of the machines.”
Gerbrand Goede likes to look ahead: “I am positive about the collaboration with Toyota Material Handling in which we jointly consider long-term deployment and availability of internal transport equipment. Not only because of the wide-ranging fleet options but also because of the personal guidance and support for our specific situation. It requires openness and transparency from both sides and this fully coheres with the strategic collaboration which we have established.”
