Lindsay Australia chooses Toyota for new warehouse fit-out

Transport and logistics company Lindsay Australia has continued its two-decade relationship with Toyota after recently moving in to a new, purpose-built warehouse and refurbishing an existing facility at Brisbane’s Rocklea markets.
Lindsay Australia recently consolidated three separate sites into its new 11,000m2 combined head office, cold storage, workshop, warehouse and transport facility in Acacia Ridge. In the process it added a new fleet of 10 Raymond 8410 pallet trucks, three Toyota 8FBE three-wheel counterbalance forklifts and two BT RRE reach trucks to its existing Toyota warehouse equipment fleet.
In addition to the new Acacia Ridge facility Lindsay Transport recently moved into and refurbished an existing fresh produce warehouse at the nearby Brisbane markets in Rocklea, and the adoption of Toyota’s fast charge technology for its Toyota battery-electric forklifts enabled it to establish its own fumigation room.
“We have the only temperature-controlled DAFF-accredited facility that includes fumigation,” Bob McMillan, General Manager, Lindsay Fresh Logistics. “The opportunity came about when we no longer needed a designated battery charging area, enabling this footprint to be used for fumigation.”
TMHA corporate account customer manager Dave Bartlett said Lindsay Transport now takes advantage of fast charging in short periods of downtime rather than having to charge its forklifts for eight hours each night.
“The forklifts can be charged in period as short as 10 minutes when they’re not in use,” Bartlett said. “This relatively new type of charging technology means you can effectively get 10 hours of battery life rather than seven, and being able to set up their own fumigation facility means they can work much more efficiently while saving a lot of time and money.”
