Lithium-ion, or Li-ION batteries are everywhere these days — in your smartphone, in your laptop, possibly even on your bicycle or in your car. However, they're probably not in the forklift trucks your company uses for materials handling.
As you know, forklift drivers come in all shapes and sizes, and a cabin that feels good and fits perfectly for one operator may be completely wrong for another.
It’s obvious that comfort plays a huge part in ensuring safety and keeping productivity high. So why shouldn’t you treat this as a priority? Especially when you consider that the driver takes up the majority of a truck’s total cost of operation.
