Forklift Procurement: The Shift from Purchasing to Leasing

Posted on

toyota forklift lease leasingThe procurement of material handling equipment is a key decision made by operations managers and procurement managers as they work toward the success of their businesses. There is quite a bit to consider, including what forklift to acquire based on specific needs in your facility, the manufacturer that can provide you the best product and service, and, of significant importance, how the equipment acquirement fits into your budget.

Though there are several factors that can influence the decision of how to acquire forklifts, procurement managers often discover that leasing their material handling equipment provides a better ROI than purchasing via cash. If you are a traditional cash customer who has just arrived at the decision to lease during your next equipment procurement cycle, you can expect some changes, many of which will end up positively affecting your business.

Customer Centric: Wanting What Your Customer Wants

Posted on

extrodinary customer service collageA customer-centric business is much more than a marketing concept or idea. Implementing one means challenging your business to move toward a mindset where everyone in the organization is focused primarily on the customer. It means ensuring your associates understand the value of each and every customer and their role in delivering the best customer experience possible.

I think we would all agree that customers are vital to our organizations. But what stops companies from working toward a customer-centric business model? I don’t think any company would say they are not interested in customer satisfaction. Satisfied customers are critical to business success because when they are unsatisfied, they go elsewhere.

Little Known Ways That Concrete Floors Threaten Your Forklifts and Your Safety

Posted on

Using forklifts effectively in any application requires assessing how they will work in concert with the other elements of your facility. From understanding your dock capabilities to making sure pallet racks and forklifts match up appropriately, a successful facility takes into account every touchpoint of forklifts in use.

An easy to overlook touchpoint that requires attention is facility flooring. Too often, operations that use forklifts experience unexpected damage to both product and equipment because floors become damaged. In this post, I’ll discuss some of the impacts of damaged floors on equipment and personnel, help identify some trouble areas on concrete floors, and discuss possible solutions to damaged flooring.

Death, Forklift Mast Chains And Taxes

Posted on

There are a lot of moving parts on a forklift that are critical to its operation and the forklift mast chains are no exception. As you may already know, a forklift uses hydraulic pressure to raise the mast up by raising the lift cylinders. This, in turn, raises the inner mast channels, but without the lift chains, your forks and carriage aren’t going anywhere. And if your forks aren’t being lifted, you aren’t going to be getting much work done.

So how does it all work? As I explained, the lift cylinders will lift the inner mast rails, but the mast chains are actually responsible for lifting the carriage and forks. Each mast chain is attached to the carriage and then routed up and over a chain wheel that acts as a pulley. The chain is then bolted into a boss that is welded onto the inner mast rail. So when the mast rails raise, the chains also raise and thus the carriage goes up with it. Continue reading

Every Forklift Fleet Management System Should Focus on These Four Things

Posted on

warehouse forklift fleet management infographicIn materials handling, telematics is the underlying technology that facilitates forklift fleet management systems. Although, it’s important to note that it doesn’t matter whether your forklift fleet consists of one truck or fifty, management systems can be incredibly useful and valuable.

If you’ve heard an anecdote beginning with, “Well, so-and-so said. . .” you are likely not alone. Part of our human nature means relying on our gut instincts and, while trusting your gut is something to be proud of, doing so isn’t always appropriate. Ensuring operational efficiency and the long-term value and ROI of capital equipment such as forklifts means having a good handle on how that equipment is being used within your operation. You may have a strong hunch about how equipment is being operated, but backing up that intuition with solid data is always the way to go! A vehicle management system (VMS) is a way to make sure you’re getting the right data to help you take firm, decisive action.

Trust me, I know how overwhelming data management can seem. And the data you’ll receive from a VMS like Toyota’s T-Matics Command or T-Matics Mobile can be overwhelming – unless you establish a few clear goals right from the beginning. Continue reading

Why Do People Think All Forklift Parts Are Equal in Quality?

Posted on
