If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
When it comes to forklifts and forklift batteries, most companies operate by this philosophy. But if you’re under pressure to not just maintain production capacity, but increase it (while also finding ways to decrease your cost structure), you may feel exasperated and at a loss, having already tapped out of easily implementable ideas to generate efficiencies.
We’ve got good news for you. Go out to your manufacturing and distribution floor and count each forklift used by your company. What may surprise you is that for more than 80 percent of users of forklifts, each lift can be like a little ATM machine for you, enabling you to lower your costs (by as much as 30 percent per year), while increasing production capacity and efficiency.
