NA 2010: Alert personnel about forklift/trailer status

By Modern Materials Handling Staff
March 01, 2010

NA 2010, slated for April 26-29, will showcase more than 500 exhibits and include a comprehensive educational conference. The event, held at the I-X Center in Cleveland, will offer an array of products to help improve productivity at your company.

Capable of detecting a lift truck inside a trailer, the Rite-Vu light communication system alerts loading dock personnel to stay clear of dock openings while any trailer is in service for improved safety and productivity. The system prevents forklift-pedestrian collisions with a series of highly visible lights and an alarm to enhance communication about the status of trailers. Consisting of three units (Pedestrian-Vu, Corner-Vu and Leveler-Vu) the products can be purchased individually or as a complete package.
