Laser International

As one of the UK’s leading independent logistic service providers, Laser International operates over 800,000 square foot of warehousing with fork-lift trucks conveying goods onsite.


At the company’s Kent branch, the four trucks are LPG powered, with a bulk tank filling station supplied by AvantiGas. Jon Palmer, Fleet Manager says he values the flexibility this option brings for him and the drivers.

“For us, LPG was the most suitable replacement for our current diesel powered FLT fleet which work both inside and outside our warehouse facility in Hythe.”

“We opted for a 2,250 litre LPG tank on a skid unit, which was a more cost-effective solution. The installation is basically on a raised detachable platform above the ground and we supply the electrics. Because it’s not fixed, we also have the option to take it with us if the company ever moves premises. It doesn’t interrupt with operations in any way and means we don’t have to store cylinders, let alone think about the downtime involved in swapping them over! We use 50,000 litres a year and our drivers fill up once a day, 7 days a week. It’s quicker and cleaner to fill up with LPG than diesel too – just a matter of minutes.”

Mr Palmer is impressed with the level of service he receives and has an excellent relationship with his Area Manager. He also finds the AvantiGas telemetry system works well for them:

“When you’re busy overseeing the fork-lifts, warehouse and HSE, it’s great to have one less thing to think about. But when we’re just 20% full, the signal from the tank generates an order with AvantiGas and that order is delivered in 5 days.”

“For everyone working in the warehouse, LPG has made a huge difference. It’s less noisy and there are fewer emissions, so it’s more comfortable for the drivers. Now, our FLT operations are running smoothly and we’re healthier too, which is an excellent result.”

"When you’re busy overseeing the fork-lifts, warehouse and HSE, it’s great to have one less thing to think about."
