Normally, the receiving and shipping places of any warehouse are the most active for a company. The shipping docks are very crowded, the trucks need to be compact, maneuverable and have great visibility. Lift truck operators who are working on a dock have to be able to step on and off of their truck, during their entire shift. To be able to solve all of your horizontal transporting dock needs, Yale features the MPE unit.
Green Initiatives: In order to be compatible with new technology, Yale has engineered their lift trucks with the latest kinds of alternative power technologies. Several of the alternative power technologies include electric batteries, liquid propane gas or LPG and clean diesel.
Upholding their tradition, Yale was amongst the first to utilize working fuel cells in actual applications. The company has supported the implementation of greener technologies through field validation, extensive internal testing and analysis. They closely work with various engineers developing innovative collaborations in order to come up with the best product available.
Yale continues to investigate more advanced and efficient battery chemistries and newer technologies to be able to increase overall productivity, decrease toxic material content as well as reducing energy consumption. The company strives to remain dedicated to these initiatives and this belief system is reinforced through participating in developing industry standards in order to safely adopt these greener technologies in a dependable manner.
Recyclability is another huge consideration for the company in its lift truck design. Yale actively selects materials used in their equipment taking in account recyclability from the beginning of the design stage. This is among the numerous ways Yale tries to stay ahead of the competition and make certain that their machinery makes less of a footprint compared to other forklifts in the field. By staying on top of the latest technological developments and trying to help the environment at the same time, they have secured themselves among the leaders in the material handling business.
