Visitors to articulated forklift truck technology pioneer Flexi Narrow Aisle’s stand at Multimodal 2014 will be able to see how the Flexi range of articulated fork lift trucks has been developed specifically to improve storage, handling and customer order assembly efficiency within manufacturing and logistics operations.
Flexi trucks provide a more space efficient solution by eliminating dead aisle space required by counterbalance or reach trucks. Depending on the building, this can increase usable storage space by between 25 and 50 per cent, making handling operations significantly more efficient and significantly reducing the cost per pallet stored.
Among the products on show will be the FlexiPiCK a new, simple to implement and highly cost effective case layer picking system that is expected to change the way companies operating in the grocery retail sector design their supply chains.
The recently launched FlexiPiCK brings the clear advantages that layer picking offers within reach of all supply chains without the need for palletising robots, AGV’s, wire guidance, conveyors or other costly or restrictive forms of automation.
