Briggs Equipment Outlines Multimodal Show Plans

14th February 2017

Briggs Equipment will be discussing its unique asset management proposition for port and freight terminal operators when it exhibits at Multimodal 2017 (NEC, Birmingham; April 4-6).

Awarded the largest and most diverse contract last year when it became the primary supplier of materials handling services to Peel Ports Group, Briggs is reinforcing its share of the multimodal marketplace with flexible solutions that add value and demonstrate innovation.

By delivering full asset management support – from procurement to disposal – Briggs says it not only meets current needs, but also takes into consideration business growth and a changing economic landscape to provide its customers with appropriate support into the future.

Ian Tongue, National Account and Business Development Director at Briggs Equipment, said: “Increasingly, ports and freight handling businesses are looking into partnering with a single supplier to streamline their operations while they seek to increase capacity, improve efficiency and meet key environmental targets. During the past 18 months we’ve secured several major new contracts, which have cemented our reputation as a solutions provider and boosted our share of this marketplace to 60 per cent. Briggs Equipment is well-known as a supplier of Hyster reachstackers and laden and empty container handlers, but it is the scope of our overall offer, including finance, fleet management and engineering support, that will be our focus at Multimodal.”
