Our cleaner and greener winners

A Yorkshire business helping to make the logistics industry more eco-friendly was the winner of our prize draw when we exhibited at the Manufactured Yorkshire event (MY13) last month.

Long-established Clark Forktruck Solutions not only supplies conventionally powered forklift trucks but also new electric vehicles, which can save users £4,000 a year in fuel bills as well as two tonnes of CO2 emissions.

“We attended the MY to do some networking and discuss with businesses about the new electric environmentally friendly commercial vehicle, that we have taken distributorship of for the north of England,” says business development manager James Green. “Winning the Champagne from Chamber International was a very nice surprise.”

The firm is also exploring options for its vehicles in inner cities. One major international delivery company has already placed an order.
