The warehousing industry is becoming increasingly aware of sustainability and environmental impact. The logistics side of the supply chain has attracted most attention, with estimates suggesting it creates between 5.5 and 13% of global greenhouse gas production. However, today's high-tech warehouses come under scrutiny too: carbon emissions from material handling in warehouses and sorting facilities account for 13% of overall supply chain emissions.
"The times, they are a-changing" in the warehousing and supply chain industries. If you have been feeling the pressure of the rise of eCommerce, along with the radical changes to working practices brought about by Covid-19, you're not alone. The question is, how have other warehouse and forklift fleet managers handled the situation? Is there advice that would benefit the industry as a whole – and how can you adapt in ways that will future-proof your operations?
As soon as you start investigating forklift trucks for your fleet, you'll see a range of different power options. The market used to be dominated by diesel, but now LPG/gas and electric-powered forklifts are easily available. (Under the electric heading, you'll also see different battery types, for example Lithium-ion). So are there pros and cons for each? Which one should you choose?
Investing in electric forklift trucks makes great environmental sense, but what are the costs involved? An electric fleet could actually help you cut your material handling expenses, yet there are still some misconceptions about what electric trucks can offer.
