Semi-automated lift trucks, fleet management technology and certified pre-owned program launch at ProMat.

January 21, 2013 - MMH Editorial

Among its new products on display this year, Yale Materials Handling (Booth 1003) showcased three new products and services.

Remote Pick Assist is a new feature that turns a pallet jack into a semi-autonomous vehicle. As a voice-enabled picker issues standard pick confirmations, the pallet jack receives direction from the WMS and follows the picker from pick face to pick face.

The Yale Vision Wireless Asset Management System provides a tiered offering of wireless monitoring, access and verifications. Highly customizable, the system can automatically notify maintenance, supervisors or service providers as needed.

Yale’s new Certified Remanufactured program is being rolled out to the dealer network. After passing a 200-point inspection, receiving a new paint job, and having certain parts mandatorily replaced, the certified lift trucks are available to customers at prices significantly below new equipment.

ProMat 2013 is scheduled to be held January 21-24, 2013 in Chicago’s McCormick Place South. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry. Modern’s complete ProMat 2013 coverage.
