Removing Fork Trucks on the Line is Now Imperative.
If you are still like MANY manufacturing and assembly operations, you are still using some fork trucks to deliver materials from your docks, company store or supermarket to replenish line needs, sometimes long distances apart. Consider manpower costs, safety exposures and productivity rates with one operator delivering one pallet or container of goods to one spot in your facility. That’s just the start. Liability issues are expediting this need, fast outpacing cost and productivity limitations. Statistics show that forklift traffic incidents continue to be the NUMBER ONE safety risk at most sites. Visibility and maneuvering limitations from bulky loads and trucks can lead to accidents involving workers, equipment, storage racks and other materials in the path of these vehicles. Backing up, lifting items off of the pallets and more in heavily trafficed areas adds risk once items are delivered.
