Material handling equipment encompasses a wide range of vehicle types, typically used to move products in the manufacturing and distribution phases.
Class I: Electric Motor Rider Trucks
Counterbalanced Forklifts - These forklifts can handle a capacity of 8,000 lbs or more, making them essential when lifting heavy materials throughout a facility.
3-Wheel Forklifts - Similar to counterbalanced forklifts, their 3 wheel design gives them a tighter turning radius, so they are a bit more nimble, at the expense of heavier lifting capacity.
Class II: Electric Narrow Aisle Trucks
Narrow Aisle Forklifts - Found in operations that want to maximize their storage space. This lift truck can operate in tighter spaces.
Class III: Electric Hand Trucks or Hand/Rider Trucks
End Riders / Center Riders - Minimal lift capabilities (i.e. lifting a pallet off the ground) used to transport materials throughout a facility.
Walkie Pallet Jacks - Designed to move loads up to 8,000 lbs. They are commonly found in delivery trucks for efficient loading and unloading of materials.
Ground support equipment at Delta's hubs in Salt Lake City and Boston are nearly entirely powered with electricity, a huge step toward the airline's aspirational goal of a 100% net-zero ground operation around the world.
“We’re grateful to our airport partners for their collaboration and support.”

We have more than 10,000 battery packs deployed at customer locations throughout the US, Mexico, and Canada.
Our strong relationships with forklift OEMs combined with years of experience provide confidence to Fortune 500 companies with large fleets.
We are leading the transition to lithium-ion and it’s our goal to change the way you power your equipment.
Because lithium-ion battery packs have no hazardous materials attributed to them and a longer cycle life, there is no need to dispose of them every two to three years as with lead acid batteries.
We provide multiple resources (brochures, manuals, guides, videos, FAQs) to guide your adoption of lithium-ion technology.
We have technicians and engineers to provide on-site or remote monitoring, troubleshooting, and support for your battery fleets to keep your operations running smoothly.
Find out how your fleet can experience runtime increases of 50% to 100% over lead-acid batteries. Get the hard data on the benefits of lithium-ion in this free eBook, including:
