Jungheinrich End Control Forklifts

The forklift truck is a vital machine to help employees raise and move heavy weight supplies and goods with efficiency and speed without straining their bodies. The way a business makes use of this tool could considerably affect its profitability.

A popular storage method is Free Stacking Pallets. This is a way to utilize your lift truck that is economical and easy. Free Stacking Pallets involves placing one pallet over another to create a stack of products. This is a stable storage system and is suggested when handling many pallets of the same height and dimensions or large amounts of the same goods. The disadvantage of this specific technique is that it just allows access to the items placed last, so it does not allow a First In First Out system.

It is essential to have a pallet racking method which involves the stable storage of different sized pallets. Utilizing a First In First Out or Last In First Out method, would enable for easy access of any pallet. It allows the rack to change shape and grow depending upon every day needs. This particular technique requires aisles that are adequately wide to enable a forklift to maneuver easily and to freely access the racks. The disadvantage is that this method means less pallets could be handled in the environment. This may not make a difference if there is sufficient space available.

Like Pallet Racking, the method known as Narrow Aisle Racking enables a Last In First Out or First In First Out system. It differs in that a special narrow forklift is used. This means that smaller areas are required between the aisles of pallets than in the Pallet Racking way. The benefit is that more goods can be kept in the same area. The downside is that you would have to transition to a different type of truck if you already own a standard forklift truck. The cost of acquiring special machinery might be a deterrent to adopting this specific system of storage.

Utilizing your forklift to its fullest potential is essential as it pays to consider your retrieval costs and storage costs of pallets. Then you can find out whether there are more efficient ways to use your lift truck to increase the usable area of your units or to accelerate the process. Greater effectiveness means greater profitability.
