Energy Efficiency:

Forklift training educates your warehouse employees about energy-efficient operations and techniques, such as selecting the right forklift for specific tasks based on load size, weight and height requirements; optimizing travel routes, avoiding unnecessary idling so that employees can ensure optimal energy usage.

Load Optimization:
