Bell coal trucks chosen by G A Smith for port contract

Bulk handling specialist G A Smith Ltd has made moves to further expand the coal handling capabilities of its fleet in the North East, with the purchase of four Bell Equipment coal trucks for use at the Port of Tyne near Newcastle – the first Bell models to be purchased by the company.

The machines, which are based on the B40 articulated dump truck but fitted with 1,200 mm coal extensions, are proving an essential resource in the fulfilment of a sizeable coal import contract.

The company, which has been established since 1987, has become responsible for overseeing the successful manoeuvre of over four million tonnes of coal, imported into the Port of Tyne. The trucks are needed to transfer coal from incoming boats to be stockpiled.

“The Port of Tyne contract presents our fleet with a heavy work consignment, requiring machines to be operated around the clock,” explains George Smith, the company’s director.

“Needless to say, with such demands on our machinery, we can only bring equipment on board that’s reliable, fuel efficient and fit for purpose.”

“It was easy to develop confidence in the capabilities of Bell’s equipment. We made the purchases back in September, selecting four machines that were extremely well-built and offered the right specification.

“Integration within our existing fleet has been seamless, with Bell providing specialist training to all our operatives on both the day and night shift, to ensure that we know how to get the best out of the coal trucks.

George Smith explains that the Port of Tyne is currently extremely busy, particularly with the competitive price of coal at present. As such, the Bell trucks have been regularly set to task, working two 12-hour shifts, seven days a week.

“Without doubt the machines are performing to, and beyond expectations, with impressive fuel economy and a notably positive response from site operatives.”

Nick Learoyd, managing director of Bell Equipment UK furthered his comment by saying: “It’s great to hear more positive feedback from satisfied customers who’ve chosen to add our hard-working machinery to their fleets. “
