Bring Cargo

Bring Cargo expedite fleet renewal in a move to transition their once entire IC fleet to electric 

Bring who is proudly positioned as one of the largest mail and logistics operators in the Nordic Region apply their progressive and developmental approach to their service offering placing them as one of the most forward-looking companies of their type in the world.

Materials handling is a critical element of their operational success and their local site in Immingham –  where they have access a fleet of over 450 trailers delivering across the UK, Europe & Scandinavia – has depended on local Windsor Materials Handling branch for 10 years. 

Brings latest investment has been into the replacement of their diesel-powered fleet of forklift trucks, with their electric Doosan counterparts which – after they took delivery of their first two trucks – was deemed a ‘no brainer’.

Managing director Bob Tutass says: “As a global business we are committed to efficient environmental solutions with a strategic goal in place that aims to reduce CO2 emissions by 40% by 2030.

“In recent years, therefore, as a group, we have implemented a number of measures to reduce our impact on the environment. This includes, among other things, a focus on environmentally-friendly vehicles and fuel, and over 1000 of our vehicles are electric, meaning eco-friendly postal deliveries.”

The operation at Bring has been reaping the benefits of renewable energy sources for almost a decade, with the installation of solar panels being the first 

Terminal manager Patrick Hewson: “With the rise in fuel duty that we saw last year, and the savings we’re seeing already with the replacement of our IC fleet for 8 electric Doosan’s we couldn’t be more delighted with our decision.”

“Our Windsor point of contact, Steve Austin, has been able to source the equipment we need to keep operations moving at a rate that exceeded our expectations. This has meant that we have been able to expedite our transition to electric from what we predicted to be around six years into just two.”

The investment has meant massive savings for this operation, fuel costs have more than halved and the electricity source is almost solely drawn down from the solar panels. Maintenance and ongoing service costs have dropped, tyre-wear has improved dramatically. 

There is a notable improvement to the indoor atmosphere that is cleaner and cooler, with the additional investment into a Nilfisk ride-on sweeper too – operators are now working within an environment which is much more comfortable.

“Not only have Bring seen significant savings on multiple levels, by opting to invest in the Fronius charger they will see an extended battery life from a guaranteed five years to more like seven on the usage the operation runs at;” says Steve Austin.

Through careful consultation around the operational requirements alongside the calculations made on cost savings, we have worked closely together to make sure that product met requirement which can only happen when customer and MHE supplier work in partnership. That coupled with two businesses that have a quick decision-making process means that solutions can be agreed and implemented at pace.
