Fleet Management...

Fleet Management is the long term reduction of costs for material handling, thus, resulting in increased efficiency, via a planned replacement program which optimizes the economic life of the equipment.

An independent survey of 500 companies revealed that only 6% of the respondents knew the maintenance cost per hour of each lift truck in their fleet and only 25% of those surveyed reported having an information system that even tracked the labor and parts by lift truck.

The 90/10 Rule...

The 90/10 rule still applies and shows that 90% of the cost over the life of a truck is maintenance related and only 10% is the purchase price.  Let's explore some ways to reduce those costs...

  • Consider these questions...

  How many forklifts should you have?

  How old is your fleet?

  how are you collecting forklift maintenance data?

  How can you reduce your fuel costs?

  What are your projected operating costs?


  Customized tires?

  Side shifters?
