Forklift-free environment

For the automotive industry, lean manufacturing means making sure that the right component quantities get to the right place at the right time. Whether you are an OEM or a sub-supplier, changing from pallets to wheels is the most important decision when deploying lean logistics.

Ensuring more efficient, forklift-free internal logistics can cut the costs of inventory, handling and in-house transportation. Increased efficiency also means space optimization, shorter turnaround times and better health & safety for staff. Smooth in-house logistics will fully support Lean production principles.

Standardized integrated transport systems improve delivery efficiency and precision, creating an optimized supply chain.
