The first thing that comes to mind when you think of cold storage applications is the common reach truck with a cold storage cab.
However, if you take into consideration the cost of energy, land and labour that is consistently on the increase, operators of cold store warehouses are increasingly looking at how they can maximise their cubed capacity with dense storage that will allow for a VNA solution such as a turret truck. Consequently, with the additional fittings on the truck as well as wire guidance fitted in the facility, this can drastically increase costs for the business.
So why wouldn’t you look at the versatility of a Bendi Articulated Forklift? These trucks offer the same service. They work in a similar aisle but they do not require the wire guidance like the turret truck. The Bendi alternative can also work within a much smaller transfer aisle, saving you space in the warehouse.
How can the Bendi Cold Storage Forklift save you money?
By reducing the aisle sizes in your warehouse from your typical reach truck, from 3300mm clear aisle to a 1800mm clear aisle, you could potentially fit 40% to 50% more products within the same cubed area. This then creates a greater storage density in turn reducing cold storage costs, saving your business money.
