Why your Trucks and Trolleys need to stand out from the crowd

In Europe it is not unusual to have different coloured trucks and trolleys – here a few of the reasons given to us as to why some European businesses have opted for colourful trolleys:

  • In a large operation where there are multiple departments using trucks or trolleys, the different colour paint will denote the department. 'Losing' trolleys between departments is a very common problem in places like supermarkets and warehouses
  • Order picking – different teams can have different colours. Perishable and non-perishable goods will usually need separate trolleys
  • Health and safety – As well as usage separation, some users want bright colours so that they stand out more
  • Some companies have requested their own 'corporate' colours – this is usually where they may be seen by the public such as large retail outlets or DIY stores
  • They look nice!

Colourful Facts

* The Classic RAL System is used to define standard colours for paint and coatings and is the most popular European Colour Standard. It is the commonly used standard for architecture, construction, industry and road safety.

According to Dulux the most popular colour in the world is blue – it is no accident that our standard truck comes in a shiny, metallic blue. 42% of men have blue as their favourite colour and 30% of women. The next favourite colours are red and green, followed by orange, brown and purple. If you really want to annoy people in your workforce, then the least popular colour is yellow – it is liked by only five per cent of people.
