Alternative fuel for forklifts
Let our sustainable fuel do all the heavy lifting

I'm new to LPG Switch LPG supplier

24/7 power for your forklift trucks

LPG forklifts can run up to three times longer compared to electric

Unlike electric-powered forklifts that requires lengthy battery recharging times, LPG powered forklifts will maintain power 24/7, with minimal refuelling time. So there’ll be no need to arrange your fleet’s schedule around re-charging your forklifts.

And, as providing energy that is kinder to the environment makes sense to us, we’re proud to also offer a fresh solution that’ll help crush your carbon emissions. The forklift fuel for thought, BioLPG is made from a blend of sustainably sourced materials and is the green gas for the job. So much so, an independent third party awards carbon saving certificates to all of our green customers. That means you can keep an eye on your all-important carbon footprint and reduce your emissions by up to 32% by switching to our Green tariff with BioLPG.* Plus, you could reduce your particulate matter by up to 98% relative to diesel. ** Now that's energy we can all vouch for.
