A Midlands based pallet truck provider is helping listed companies to cut down on their emissions and be more eco-friendly, after regulations came into play that legally require these types of businesses to report their carbon footprint. Midland Pallet Truck is assisting businesses across the country to compile positive reports with regards to the carbon cutdowns; their manual handling equipment can help to decrease carbon emissions and help businesses to stay on the right side of the new legislation.
