Yale expands availability of Yale Reliant at MODEX 2024

Technology designed to support warehouse safety initiatives now available on 59 Yale forklift models

ATLANTA (March 12, 2024) – Yale Lift Truck Technologies announces the availability of its Yale Reliant™ forklift operator assist solution on an additional 16 Yale® models. The new entrants to the Yale Reliant lineup are predominantly warehouse lift trucks and expand the technology’s availability to a total of 59 models covering a wide range of applications, including those common in retail and e-commerce fulfillment, wholesale distribution and third-party logistics operations.

The lineup expansion includes several models that were not previously available for standard order with Yale Reliant enabled, as well as additional capacities or configurations of models for which only select variations were available previously. Very narrow aisle (VNA) turret trucks, narrow aisle reach trucks engineered with a smaller frame for tight retail environments like stockrooms, and the straddle, furniture and standard order picker models are all newly available with Yale Reliant. Center riders, tow tractors, enclosed end riders and reach trucks were already available with Yale Reliant, but the latest portfolio expansion extends availability to additional capacities and configurations of those models.

The operator assist technology is the focus of the Yale booth #B3810 at the MODEX trade show in Atlanta this week. In addition to providing a deeper understanding of the solution’s underlying advanced dynamic stability (ADS) technology, personalized demonstrations at the booth also feature other technologies in the Yale Reliant suite like object detection, proximity detection and real-time location sensing. Yale Reliant keeps the operator in ultimate control of the lift truck, but depending on the package selected, automatically applies interventions in response to compromised stability, obstacles detected in the path of travel or in close proximity, and even based on rules specified for certain areas of the warehouse.

“The interest that this technology continues to attract, whether at the industry’s leading tradeshows or reflected in the thousands of trucks commercially deployed with it, speaks to forklift accident prevention as a critical priority for today’s warehouses,” says Joe Koch, Emerging Technology Sales Manager, Yale Lift Truck Technologies. “Just yesterday, we introduced a standalone ADS option to empower operations with greater choice and opportunity to incorporate this tool in their safety initiatives, and this announcement takes another step in that direction, broadening our Yale Reliant lineup to help warehouses and retailers access the truck that is most appropriate for the job and technology that can help them support inexperienced operators and proper operating practices.”
