Distribution deal brings loads more options.

A FIRM in Elland is all set for a load more work following a tie-up with a company supplying equipment for loading and unloading cargo.

Terberg DTS (UK), of Lowfields Business Park, has signed a distribution deal with Finnish-based Actiw Oy to supply its LoadPlate loading system in England and Ireland.

LoadPlate is a new loading system for standard cargo space such as sea containers and trailers.

The agreement opens up new areas for LoadPlate, which is already selling into other European countries.

Terberg DTS (UK) managing director Alisdair Couper said: "This is a unique opportunity to be in at the grass roots of an exciting new product. We operate in several sectors where the product will work well alongside other products we offer."

Mr Couper added: "We look forward to developing concepts and solutions which will in time bring huge cost saving to the end-user, improve safety of goods in transit and open up a new window of options for the shipping market in goods that previously could not be containerised." Actiw Oy managing director Reijo Viinonen said: "Logistics in general has been developing during the last two decades, but loading and unloading are still made by conventional and ineffective methods."

He said LoadPlate was a step forward for the industry, adding: "It is an advantage to get good partners such as Terberg DTS to bring such new methods on the market."

Terberg DTS (UK) Ltd is a subsidiary of Terberg Holland. Formed in 1998, the Elland firm supplies specialist cargo handling vehicles such as industrial, seaport and aviation tractors for customers at ports, railways, airports and factories.
