When your suppliers’ lorries are arriving with the goods you ordered for retail distribution, you want your operators to be able to head over to the loading bay quickly. Here are the most common and easy-to-use trucks for this type of operation:
Tip. If your warehouse has a long distance to bridge, choose powered pallet trucks with a platform to get more work done in a short time span.
Tip. To find out the lift requirements for your operations, simply locate and measure your highest shelf and then add another 15 to 20 cm to your measurement.
To make room for other arriving goods, your deliveries are ideally placed in the holding area, where your operators can transport them towards the assigned places in the racking. For a fast travel time and smooth stacking, reach trucks are the way to go. Depending on your needs you can consider the following types of reach trucks:
After all the goods have come in and are put away, your drivers can start picking the goods needed for each store from the lower levels. For this first and second-level picking, order pickers are perfect for the job; especially our BT Optio L-series, as they have flexible E-man steering.
After all the orders have found their way back to the holding area, they can be packed and shipped to the according shops, to arrive there right on time!
