Normally, the receiving and shipping areas of any warehouse are the most active for a company. The shipping docks are really congested, the trucks need to be compact, maneuverable and have great visibility. Lift truck operators who are working on a dock must be able to step off and on their truck, during their whole shift. To be able to answer all of your horizontal transporting dock needs, Yale features the MPE unit.
Green Initiatives: The lift trucks have been engineered with the latest versions of alternative power technologies in recent years so as to be compatible with new technology. Several of the alternative power technologies include LPG or liquid propane gas, clean diesel and electric batteries.
Yale was amongst the very first to use working fuel cells in actual applications, upholding the tradition. The company has supported the implementation of greener technologies through extensive internal testing, analysis and field validation. They closely work with different engineers developing innovative collaborations to be able to create the best available product.
Yale continues to investigate more advanced and efficient battery chemistries and newer technologies in order to increase overall production, lessen toxic material content as well as reducing energy consumption. The company strives to remain committed to these initiatives and this belief system is reinforced through participating in developing industry standards so as to carefully adopt these greener technologies in a reliable manner.
One more huge factor for the company is recyclability in the Yale design of lift trucks. From the very beginning design stage, Yale actively selects materials used in their machinery with the recyclability factor taken into account. This is among the many ways Yale tries to stay ahead of the competition and ensure their machinery makes less of a footprint compared to other kinds of forklifts in the field. By staying on top of the latest technological developments and trying to serve the natural environment at the same time, they have secured themselves one of the leaders in the material handling industry.
