Alutruk Supplies Tesco’s Entire Delivery Fleet

BIL Groups Customised Sack Truck delivers for Tesco – 2 million times a month!

A sack truck case study: With well over 500,000 home deliveries made each week  Tesco needs a reliable way of getting the groceries from the delivery van to the doorstep. BIL Group were able to help with a customised AluTruk solution.

BIL Groups relationship with Tesco goes back over 15 years, so understanding their need for a reliable, robust, quality engineered sack truck  BIL Group created a custom built sack truck to meet all of Tesco’s requirements. Consequently you will find one of our customised Aluminium Sack Trucks on every one of Tesco’s 3,000 delivery vans.

Lightweight Aluminium Folding Sack Truck

Our Tesco Sack Truck is easy to handle but robust, being made of quality lightweight aluminium. It comes with crowned tread tyres for ease of movement when loaded. These sack trucks also have a tote hook assembly to ensure the load is stable when being transported. In addition a folding footplate means our sack truck takes up the minimum amount of room in the van.

The customisation was completed with personalised Tesco side strips and unique serial number hard stamped into each sack truck.

While meeting all of Tesco’s stringent health and safety requirements the AluTruk is still capable of a 300 kg load capacity.

Steel Barrel Trucks

Roll Out the Barrel!

AluTruk Help Murphy and Sons supply the Brewing Trade.

The AluTruk division of the BIL Group have been working with Murphy and Son for many years.

As Murphy & Son, based in Nottingham, are brewing consultants and manufacturing chemists. They provide brewers throughout the country with all the processing kit and ingredients required to make quality beers.

As part of their business Murphy and Son provide their customers with Manual Handling equipment. And the relationship with BIL Group started after they approached us looking for a company who could provide them with better engineered, more robust, quality sack trucks for one of their customers.

Steel Sack Trucks for Heavy Barrels

We were able to show Murphy and Son our heavy duty steel sack truck range which was especially adapted to meet the needs of the brewing trade. Our steel barrel / keg trucks come complete with Keg hook attachment, twin grip handles and a choice of Pneumatic / Puncture proof tyres. Murphy and Son were delighted with these high quality, robust sack trucks and since then they have sold this Steel Keg and Barrel Truck into some major international brewing companies such as; Heineken and Carlsberg as well as many other smaller brewing businesses.

Aluminium Beer Trucks

We also provided Murphy and Son with a lightweight Aluminium sack truck option. In fact they liked this one so much they immediately replaced all their existing sack trucks with our AluTruk. This aluminium based beer truck provides the user with a unique 300kg load capacity. It is lightweight and has a modular design which enables quick and simple repairs to be undertaken if necessary so extending its life.

A New Toy for the Team at Salvage Hunters!

Being a fan of the show BIL Products Director Tim Walker noticed that Drew Pritchard and the team at Salvage Hunters could do with an upgrade on their sack truck! Our BDM Nathan Jones got in touch with the Salvage Hunters team and a brand new AluTruk was delivered to their warehouse, Looks like they are making good use of it already!
