Handle-iT were successful in the tender process launched in January this year and Managing director Daniel Farrar Visited the customer while on his Asia Pacific visit which also encompassed the successful meeting in the Philippines.

The tender included design, manufacture, delivery and even unloading from the shipping containers, through service lift and 150-meter corridor, to the trolley park itself.

Daniel added, “the final element of delivery was a nightmare, we had four local staff moving 2 containers of stock over a 300-meter round trip, with a maximum of five trolleys being moved at any one time, meaning 100 trip of 300 meters……. Maybe I should have volunteered myself to lose some of this waist line.”

The contract included 400 Steel airport trolleys all with swivel castors and Handle-iT branded Bump Pad for the front, ensuring that no one will forget were they have come from.
