AP Exhaust Optimizes Lift Truck Fleet with VNA Solutions
CHALLENGE: ANALYZE CURRENT COSTS
AP Exhaust Products was experiencing significant growth and wanted to ensure its material handling equipment was positioned to aid the company during current and future expansion. As a result, the company decided to evaluate its lift truck fleet to ensure it was as efficient and cost-effective as possible.
With help from Carolina Handling, AP Exhaust Products updated its existing fleet of LP and electric lift trucks to a fleet of new electric vehicles.
SOLUTION: UPGRADING THE FLEET
The newly optimized fleet includes: Raymond Model 8400 pallet trucks, Raymond Model 4200 stand-up counterbalanced lift trucks, Raymond Model 7400 Reach-Fork® trucks and the Raymond Model 9600 Swing-Reach® truck.
In addition, Carolina Handling implemented a comprehensive maintenance management program to handle preventive and unscheduled maintenance needs for a fixed monthly cost.
RESULT: REVAMPED WAREHOUSE
Representatives from Carolina Handling also helped AP Exhaust Products customize and implement a complete power program for its lift truck battery charging, in which AP Exhaust Products pays a monthly fee for its battery power, and a third party handles battery charging schedules.
AP Exhaust Products saved additional costs related to energy usage because the lift trucks are now charged during off-peak times when energy costs are lower.
