Pickerings Lifts Supply Chain Announce Partnership with 4Front Engineered Solutions


Pickerings Lifts Supply Chain are pleased to confirm they are now sole and exclusive distributors in the United Kingdom for KELLEY® and SERCO® Loading Dock Equipment, LoadHog® Modular Dock Bridges, TKO® Impactable Dock Doors and APS Resource® Aftermarket Products, working in partnership with 4Front Engineered Solutions.


Pickerings Lifts Supply Chain now offer the complete 4Front Engineered Solutions portfolio of products and services across the lifting, loading and docking range. It extends to the installation, service and repair of:




Sectional Doors

Roller Shutters

Fire Rated Shutters

Rapid Rise doors

Impact Resistant Doors



Mechanical Levellers

Hydraulic Levellers

Edge of Dock (EOD) Levellers

Scissor Lifts

Lift Tables



Ground Mount Restraints

Surface Mount Restraints

Bay Allocation Systems



Dock shelters

Traffic indication systems

Load bay lighting

Wheel guide systems


In a logistics environment, safety is paramount, and vehicle restraints are imperative to ensure the process of unloading haulage vehicles is made as secure as possible. 


“Due to the growing volume of transportation vehicles, the risk of drivers moving away whilst still being tipped has increased exponentially. Although traffic indication systems have been widely utilised, the possibility of the driver acknowledging the wrong traffic indication has become common place. Surface and ground mount restraint systems, such as the SL60 from Serco™, eliminates this risk and Pickerings Lifts Supply Chain are happy to align ourselves with this range of products due to the benefits they provide to the end user.”

Marcus Clissold, Customer Support Manager for Pickerings Lifts Supply Chain also notes, “With economic uncertainty in the marketplace, the need to maintain and repair older Dock Leveller units has been brought to the forefront of the Planned Preventative Maintenance Cycle (PPM).  With access to, and the backing of the APS™ resource, we can offer the OEM components required to keep these units fully functional at a reasonable cost.”




“With the full range of Kelley™ and Serco™ Levellers available to Pickerings Lifts Supply Chain, direct replacements for existing units can be installed as a plug and play option.  This allows control of costs due to removing the need for structural works and minimising the disruption associated with full asset replacement”.


With an unbroken history of independent ownership since 1854, Pickerings Lifts Supply Chain, part of Pickerings Europe Limited, has regional offices throughout the UK.  Providing a wide range of loading solutions of up to 25 tonnes capacity which meet the latest EU regulations, Pickerings Lifts Supply Chain deliver customer service for new installations; maintenance support for existing installations and refurbishments.


This partnership has strengthened Pickerings Lifts Supply Chain’s strategic decision to continue to be market led in 2010, adding tangible customer value and exceeding customer expectations at the ‘4Front’ of the logistics and warehousing industry.
