Challenges in the Retail Industry
Product, delivery schedules, and customer demand fluctuate season to season in retail operations. Regardless of what you're selling, the job still has to get done and you still have challenges to face. And that means, forklifts for retail facilities need to be at their best.
Your process may stay the same: unload, stack, stage, stock and rotate. But that doesn't mean efficiency is easily achieved.
Loading and unloading products over dock plates and on lift gates requires precise control and handling.
With a variety of vendors comes a variety of pallet types. You need the right fork size to deal with different pallet widths and fork pocket sizes.
