Toyota introduces quick truck delivery service

Toyota introduces quick truck delivery service

Toyota Material Handling UK has recently launched Toyota First, a programme that allows quick deliveries to be made on a selection of bestselling models including Toyota Tonero engine-powered forklifts, Toyota Traigo electric-powered forklifts and BT Levio powered pallet trucks.

The First programme will allow Toyota to offer quicker new truck deliveries to customers to help meet their business needs and to make operations run more efficiently.

Together with its customers, Toyota has identified a selection of industry standard trucks and furnished them with the most popular specifications to fit most applications including; loading & unloading, horizontal transport and stacking. Toyota First trucks offer the best standard in performance, safety, comfort and reliability and include essential options that successfully fulfil a great variety of business requirements, but with quicker delivery times.

The trucks included in the programme are all provided with the features that make Toyota one of the leading suppliers in materials handling equipment. This includes the unique Toyota System of Active Stability (SAS) on counterbalanced forklifts, which enhances the operator's safety and comfort, and enables users to reduce the risk of goods damage, as well as the BT Powerdrive, an integrated drive and control system on powered pallet trucks that enhances truck efficiency.

Tony Wallis, sales and marketing director for Toyota Material Handling UK commented: "Toyota First is a great programme for both our customers and our team.  Our customers still benefit from the tailored service we offer, including free site surveys and onsite demonstrations but we can now have their new truck on site sooner. Toyota First is just an additional tool to help us give our customers what they need, when they need it."
