BT Warehouse Movers & Lifts
Warehouse operations are complex and there is seldom one piece of materials handling equipment which covers all contingencies. For this reason, there is a bewildering range of equipment on offer. Apart from the standard counterbalance forklifts, the range includes specialized equipment such as pallet movers, pedestrian and ride-on stackers, reach trucks, order pickers, and narrow aisle forklifts. Warehouse forklifts are becoming more technologically advanced. Most of the recently developed materials handling equipment includes built-in automation technology such as guidance systems, height selection controls, synchronous rotation on turret-heads, fork cycle control (picking up and putting away of pallets in racking or shelving) and automated battery changing stations. Observers say that warehouse equipment sales are the most resilient in the materials handling sector.
