Manufacturing Journalist TR Cutler Reports Fork Truck Free Supports Social Distancing During COVID-19

Manufacturing journalist, TR Cutler recently contributed a feature article in the current issue of Manufacturing Outlook magazine discussing the process of switching from fork truck environments to fork truck free environments as an essential strategy during COVID-19. Read more here.

According to Cutler, with social distancing here to stay, carts are safer when equipped with quality components that require little or no maintenance and repairs. Top tier delivery carts are more reliable for delivery than fork trucks and require reduced human interaction. As fork truck free manufacturing plants grow, Lean Manufacturing principles are expanding.  

Industrial carts can be pushed, pulled in a train, and are able to turn in tight spaces. They can also link to complimentary vehicles like tuggers and automated guided vehicles (AGVs).  At a time when fewer people can be on the plant floor making repetitive runs with fork trucks, cart delivery is both a viable and efficient alternative. Safe return to work strategies have to look at mitigation processes for excessive interaction.  Fork Truck free is a reasonable first step.
