How to choose the best pallet truck?

Well, I found you on the Jungheinrich blog. In today's article, we will briefly talk about the steps you need to take to choose the best pallet truck to use in your warehouse.

Once chosen, productivity will increase, and packages in the warehouse will be much less damaged. The importance of choosing the perfect machine is vital, because if you choose a machine that is not suitable, the warehouse workers will work slower, will be less enthusiastic, will decrease productivity, and in some cases, the safety of employees will be jeopardized. during working hours.

There are several types of pallet trucks, but for the most part, they are divided into two categories: electric and manual. This is the first choice you must make, and the decision must be made according to the specifications of your deposit. Even if, in general, many of the decision makers in warehouses choose pallet trucks without much thought, the choice is harder than it seems and you should always consider the following:

Operating environment

Take a look at the entire operating environment and decide if a manual pallet truck or electric pallet truck is needed is more advantageous and more productive. This is an important aspect, because a good decision will increase the productivity of the warehouse, while an improper decision can put employees at risk.

Working hours

Another thing to consider is the number of hours the pallet has to be functional. Depending on the number of hours, you can decide whether you need a manual or electric pallet truck. If the number of hours the pallet has to operate is greater than the battery life, then you either need a manual pallet truck or two electric pallet trucks.

Ease of maneuverability

Also, before making a purchase, you should check the handling of a pallet truck and make sure it is very easy to handle and that it does not need to be returned in several movements. Depending on the width of the aisles in the warehouse, you can decide the width and weight of the pallet truck.
