Minimize risk with Yale autonomous forklifts

Did you know that 70% of forklift incidents can be attributed to operator error? And with warehouse turnover at 43% - greater inexperience and incidents can be difficult to avoid.

Benefits of automated forklifts

Dual Operating Modes

Can run autonomously on the programmed path and can switch to manual mode with the touch of a button, helping accommodate changing operational needs.

Infrastructure Free Navigation

Integrates into existing operations by mapping structural features to self-locate and navigate; does not require laser reflectors, guide wires or magnets.

Local Support

Yale has an extensive network of exclusive dealers who service and support robotic solutions locally for fast service with less downtime.


Has the ability to take on small tasks and expand as operational requirements grow..


Yale Robotic Reach

Automation to gain independence from skilled labor shortage

The dual-mode, pantograph robotic reach truck from Yale is the first of its kind, capable of autonomously storing and retrieving loads from locations just over 400 inches high to maximize vertical storage space and address labor shortages. The robotic solution can serve both single and double-deep pallet storage and offers a 3,500 pound capacity rating, ideal for distribution centers challenged with inventory growth.

  • Autonomously Charged
  • Deposit or remove pallets from just over 400 inches high
  • Operates within vast temperatures and warehouse management systems
  • Ideal fit for distribution centers
