TRANSFORM YOUR GREATEST CHALLENGES INTO OPPORTUNITIES

Increasing plant productivity, through efficient use of resources, is a key factor in the chemical industry today.

SAFETY AND REGULATIONS

Your industry is highly regulated and workers often operate around hazardous materials.  

How can you meet Safework requirements and help keep your employees safe?

  • Use telematics to track lift truck access and provide training updates
  • Implement automated solutions and redirect workers to more value-added tasks
  • Evaluate whether forklift awareness solutions will help increase awareness and minimize risk in your facility

SUSTAINABILITY

The chemicals and plastics industry has been increasing efforts toward sustainability, but meeting the demands of customers and government agencies remain a challenge.

Want to improve the environmental performance of your operation?

  • Help maximize sustainability through electrification of your fleet
  • Source from suppliers who strive for a greener supply chain
  • Develop a recycling plan for by-products of your operation

RAW MATERIALS PRICING

Raw materials pricing cab be volatile and out of your control, impacting your bottom line.

How can you better manage costs within your operation?

  • Right-size your materials handling equipment with a fleet management plan
  • Deploy energy efficient equipment
  • Utilize equipment offering lower maintenance costs and longer service intervals

LABOR RETENTION

Hiring people who are willing to learn your industry is one thing, but it’s often difficult to keep them.

How can you retain talent and help reduce turnover?

  • Offer advanced ergonomic lift truck solutions to help reduce musculoskeletal problems
  • Implement training and development programs to help keep your team engaged
  • Use telematics to simplify checklists and reinforce positive behavior

SPACE CONSTRAINTS

Precision handling of raw and finished goods in crowded production and storage areas is critical.

How are you going to optimize your footprint?

  • Go vertical, and take advantage of unused cubic space
  • Deploy compact trucks developed specifically for high lift applications in confined areas.
  • Utilize agile electric trucks, delivering high productivity in constrained areas
