Six ergonomic features you should look for on your next forklift truck

Written by Bengt Kristiansson, 2017-03-14


It’s possible to spend large amounts of time and money trying to reduce logistics costs by making small changes around the warehouse - but when it comes to the total cost of owning your truck over its lifetime, the driver is often the biggest factor, and can sometimes make up 70% of the total cost.

That’s why it can be a good idea to focus on the driver if you’re trying to save money. Fortunately, there’s a range of optional features and add-ons for your forklift truck which can help make drivers more productive, more efficient, and safer when they’re on the job. And as we all know, warehouse ergonomics and forklift safety doesn’t just benefit your drivers - it boosts your bottom line, too.
