Expect Districbution Invests in Narrow Aisle Flexi Trucks

Expect Distribution, the warehousing and storage company has high quality facilities located in Halifax and Bradford. The company operate approximately 300,000 sq. ft. of modern warehousing and distribution space at these West Yorkshire sites. The company has undertaken a significant investment programme that has led to the completion of a 20,000 sq. ft. expansion to their warehousing and office space at their main facility in Bradford.


The company has experienced an increase in the demand for their warehousing services which cater to a wide range of industries including medical supplies and foodstuffs to industrial equipment. The expansion has enabled the warehousing and storage company to keep up to the demand for their range of logistics services and enough extra warehousing space to incorporate an additional 2200 pallets for storage on site. The expansion allows the business to meet demand while also maintaining a standard of service that meets their customer’s requirements.


As part of their investment, Expect Distribution has increased the number of Narrow Aisle Ltd vehicles. The company has been using narrow aisle storage for a number of years, however it was vital that the trucks selected to replenish Expect Distribution’s fleet can also adapt to be used as part of the company’s cross docking operations. These operations are an important part of Expects work, as they are known for being one of the largest inputters of freight into the Palletline network.


The company has used Flexi trucks for several years and the technology used is the best materials handling solution for the logistics and warehousing company. Throughput is improved by Expect when using Flexi trucks in their narrow aisle operations, being able to pick up and turn pallets in aisles that could be as small as 1.6 meters wide. The continued use of these vehicles allows the company to make the most of their new increased storage capacity as well as the upkeep of a safe and productive facility.
