Avoiding Forklift Fleet Replacement

Forklift fleet replacements are expensive. At ELOKON, we’re here to help your company avoid them. Even replacing one forklift following a collision or disrepair significantly adds to overhead costs. Forklift fleet replacement is a great inconvenience, in addition to being pricey. With the right safety and fleet managment systems, your team can avoid such a large-scale fleet overhaul. Here are some ways that ELOKON extends the lifespan of MHEs in the intralogistics sector:

Making Maintenance Schedules Accessible

Following maintenance schedules is critically important to forklift fleet, and it’s key in avoiding total forklift fleet replacement. Forklift maintenance can lead to increased productivity and safety, among other benefits. However, teams can realize these benefits if operators adequately report damage, and maintenance teams complete tune-ups when needed. ELOfleet allows teams to note damage and plan maintenance schedules. It also automatically records collisions so maintenance teams can address any issues in a timely manner. By tracking and following preventative maintenance schedules, your team can extend the lifespan of its forklift fleet and save on overhead costs.

Preventing Forklift-Related Accidents

ELOKON’s other forklift safety innovations also prevent forklift-related accidents through speed control, proximity detection, and zoning throughout the warehouse. ELOKON has a portfolio of safety solutions designed to protect different aspects of the warehouse. For example, ELOprotect is our VNA Pedestrian Safety System. ELOshield is our Proximity Detection System that prevents collisions in the warehouse. ELOspeed is ELOKON’s Indoor/Outdoor Speed Control system that slows down forklifts as they transition back into indoor working areas. By employing safety systems that prevent collisions throughout the warehouse, your team can avoid the need to replace fleets due to severe damage. We at ELOKON are committed to the seamless implementation of these safety and assistance systems throughout your working environment in order to safeguard your workforce.
