Global Shipping Services is a privately-owned Stevedoring company based on the Humber Estuary. The company recently expanded their fleet of machines by securing a contract hire for ten new Hyundai forklifts through Hessle Fork Trucks. The order comprised four diesel 50D-9 five tonne machines, two five tonne 50DA-9 machines and four 3.5 tonne diesel 35D-9 trucks.
All ten machines are currently handling timber at Immingham and Goole Docks - discharging ships and loading road vehicles. Global Shipping Managing Director, Peter Waud said, “Hessle came up with a proposal that was right for both companies – we managed to agree a deal from a price, commitment and service level point of view that would work for both Global Shipping and Hessle. We are very happy with the deal”
Mr Waud added, “The operators like working with the machines – they say they are driver friendly and very responsive. The visibility from the cab is also excellent which is an important safety aspect.”
Gary Hawkhead, Director of the Hessle Industrial Division commented on the deal, “Having worked with Global Shipping team and other port operators for over 15-years we have a full understanding of how to deliver a first-class solution.
This is built on providing the highest quality materials handling equipment and an excellent and a dedicated service support package. This coupled with our strong financial backing enables us to offer the flexibility to accommodate the client’s business requirements now and, in the future, which offers Global Shipping piece of mind in an advancing shipping industry.”
