Hyster launches new truck tracking system

Hyster has launched a new Wireless Access Monitoring System, the Hyster Tracker, to provide its customers with effective fleet management, and in turn support demanding materials handling operations.

The new system has been designed to enable monitoring and reporting on both the performance and use of forklift trucks and container handling trucks, in operation.

Hyster says that, as well as tracking key performance data, the Hyster Tracker uses wireless tracking technology to keep trucks running for longer, and more productively.

“The Hyster Tracker can also restrict access so that only those trained to use that equipment are able to, said vice president aftermarket EMEA at Hyster, Francois Serfontein.

“This helps to increase driver accountability, which can help to improve driving behaviour and is proven to reduce damage to equipment and to stock.”
