To ensure fresh carrots and parsnips were delivered to customers on-time during the busy festive period, vegetable producer, Alan Bartlett and Sons, used a tried and tested method for dealing with the seasonal boom by hiring a Thorworld Industries loading ramp for the ninth consecutive year.

“When December comes, we need to be ready to fulfil the additional distribution demands placed on our business,” Toby Bartlett, Company Director and son of founder, Alan Bartlett explains.

“While our existing three loading bays are ideal for much of the year, an additional resource is required to give us that extra capacity to meet client demand and ensure deliveries are on time throughout December.

“We rent the equipment for a four-week period, which enables us to distribute three average months’ worth of parsnips in just two weeks. Hiring the ramp allows us to up-the-pace when loading pallets into lorries enabling deliveries to leave our sites on time and in the most efficient way possible.”

Thorworld Industries offers a variety of yardramp models for hire, all of which can be made available for periods between a month and five years. The hired equipment can then be returned once it’s no longer needed, or purchased at a reduced rate.
