Logistics BusinessPremiere for Yale Reliant Lift Truck

With Yale Reliant, a package of advanced operator assistance systems, Yale Lift Truck Technologies is putting ergonomics and occupational safety centre stage at LogiMAT in Stuttgart. In Hall 10 F20 from 19 to 21 March 2024 the intralogistics solutions provider will bring its international insight, local knowledge, and previously unseen products and new technologies to show how warehouses can optimise opportunities and outsmart their biggest challenges.

At LogiMAT, visitors can see a live demo of Yale Reliant, a system that can continually monitor people, trucks and loads and can recognise and help avoid hazards. With around 5,000 units already in use in the USA, it is a multiple award-winning solution developed with customer-driven design.

The system combines location-based and event-based functionality. Examples include if the operator lifts a load above recommended heights or where there is increased pedestrian traffic, obstacles or other hazards.

The speed is automatically reduced at the end of an aisle, at junctions or in the event of obstacles. Among other features, pedestrian areas are avoided, the fork height adapts to the surroundings and the sight lines support the driver.

Logistics managers around the world are looking for solutions that support warehouse safety across all lift truck types. With this solution, Yale Lift Truck Technologies is also responding to the trend towards higher goods turnover and the simultaneous shortage of skilled labour in the logistics market.

“With 100 years of experience and a network of independent dealers with local knowledge, we are helping customers worldwide by delivering solutions for the real-world challenges they face today,” says Ron Farr, Director, Warehouse Sales EMEA at Yale. “At the same time, our experience gives us the insight to understand the future intralogistics roadmap and provide the support to guide our customers past the next challenges.”

“Yale Reliant demonstrates how we tailor our advanced technologies as a customised solution. Key customers in the USA are already using the solution and we look forward to launching in Europe with decision makers who are concerned about the growing skills shortage as volumes increase,” he continues. “From order pickers and reach trucks to tow tractors and counterbalance trucks, we offer a wide range of integrated technologies and are one of the few suppliers on the market to offer comprehensive and customised solutions for operator assistance systems.”

Yale Lift Truck Technologies leverages over a century of material handling experience and substantial investment in innovation to bring the most advanced technology-driven lift truck solutions to market. The company offers a full line of award-winning lift trucks, including reach trucks, order pickers, very narrow aisle trucks, pallet jacks and trucks, pallet stackers, tow tractors and counterbalanced forklifts, as well as powerful operator assist solutions, proven robotics and a wide range of power sources to help customers adapt to today’s demanding supply chain. Yale and its independent dealer network support these solutions with comprehensive after-sales service, parts, financing and training.
