The most active portions of any warehouse are the receiving and shipping docks. These active areas can become very crowded. The forklifts have to offer excellent visibility, be as compact as possible and extremely maneuverable.

To be able to resolve all of your horizontal transporting dock needs, Yale spotlights the MPE model.
Yale showcases the double-reach NDR and single reach NR models for aisle widths of 8 to 10 feet. Narrow aisle applicants increase the ratio of storage space to aisle width. Yale machinery feature best-in-class ergonomics. The Yale Narrow Aisle forklifts provide a Quadra-Flexx Operator Compartment. This features various configurations for control handle and stance options.
