Yale to spotlight lift truck operator assist system and other warehouse technologies at MODEX 2024

Booth #B3810 will highlight solution engineered to support a customer’s warehouse safety initiative

GREENVILLE, N.C. (Feb. 6, 2024) - Yale Lift Truck Technologies announces it will highlight a range of innovative lift truck solutions resulting from organizational strengths in research and development and technology integration at the MODEX trade show in Atlanta March 11 – 14. In response to the overwhelming demand at ProMat 2023, Yale will dedicate booth #B3810 to hosting personalized demonstrations of the company’s award-winning operator assist technology, Yale Reliant™. The Yale MODEX experience will also include booth displays and seminars led by specialized experts.

The Yale Reliant demonstrations will provide a deeper understanding of the solution’s development and the unique approach of its underlying advanced dynamic stability technology. They will also showcase several examples of how operations can use the solution’s real-time location sensing technology to enforce certain operating rules in specific parts of a facility, such as limiting mast height in areas with low-hanging obstructions or doorways, or automatically slowing the truck as it approaches crosswalks.

“Injury and illness rates in the warehousing industry are considerably higher than those of other industries – even twice as high in certain sectors, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). This is a very serious issue for warehousing operations, but that’s not their only headwind,” says Brad Long, Brand Manager, Yale. “Persistent labor challenges are exacerbating safety risks while warehouses wrestle high costs and intensifying customer expectations. Yale is responding with lift truck innovations that offer new ways for warehouses to tame these challenges and rethink what they expect from suppliers, equipment and technology.”

Displays lining the walls of booth #B3810 will showcase several solutions that are helping customers adapt to modern demands, including telemetry, robotics, operator assist systems, integrated lithium-ion power and warehouse lift truck models derived from a customer-centric design process.

Seminars led by experts from Yale will examine two of the most advanced lift truck technologies available for warehouses to address labor, safety and productivity challenges:
