A pallet truck is a familiar site in warehouses, factories and other places of work up and down the country. But, if your business doesn’t yet have one, is it worth setting aside a budget and making time to pick a truck to integrate into your work practises? What advantages can you expect to see and how can pallet trucks – or pump trucks as they are sometimes called – streamline work flows, efficiency and productivity?
A hand pallet truck can be beneficial when you have pallets to move but, the quantities are fairly small. Hand pallet trucks have the advantage of assisting a human operative making it less strenuous to move materials from one place to the other. The simple addition of a hand pallet truck can cut out the threat of the back problems often associated with the repeated lifting of heavy loads and estimated to cost business around £12 billion a year in sick days and loss of productivity.
