Yale Materials Handling Corporation announced two new accolades for its solutions engineered to help customers overcome labor and sustainability challenges while equipping operators for maximum performance. The company made the 2020 FL100+ Top Software and Technology Provider list by Food Logistics and received the 2020 Green Supply Chain Award presented by Supply & Demand Chain Executive.
“In a business environment that prizes efficiency, optimizing labor, power and equipment is the name of the game,” said Brad Long, brand manager, Yale Materials Handling Corporation. “From prioritizing operator comfort in our lift truck design to game changing robotics and telemetry, we’re focused on delivering the tools customers need with the expertise to provide a package tailored for top performance.”
Yale placed on the FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers list for solutions like robotic lift trucks and lift truck telemetry. With food and beverage operations facing demand and squeezed to perform under intense cost pressure, robotics can help augment labor resources while telemetry works to optimize lift truck fleet management.
Yale robotic lift trucks are reportedly capable of operating without a human operator, allowing warehouses to automate repetitive, time-consuming tasks like point-to-point transportation, and focus available labor on engaging, value-added work. The Yale Vision telemetry system monitors key lift truck data so operations can make informed decisions about utilization and maintenance to keep costs in check.
The company’s practical, sustainable power options could also help customers solve operational challenges and earned Yale the recognition of the Green Supply Chain Award.
The Yale® Power Suite includes hydrogen fuel cells and lithium-ion batteries, along with more traditional electric and ICE options, and is available across a comprehensive line of lift trucks. This broad availability of newer electric options could help businesses reduce their energy use and create a healthier work environment by eliminating harmful emissions, off-gassing and other contaminants.
