Latest FLT ideal for cross-docking activities

Toyota Industrial Equipment has extended its range of electric trucks by introducing the 7FBMF-S, a high-speed version of its four-wheel, electric counterbalanced forklift which will further enhance productivity for customers.

Capable of a top speed of 21kph, the 7FBMF-S is beneficial for operations where trucks have to travel over long distances. Transport times between pick-up and deposit of goods are significantly reduced leading to increased productivity.

According to Toyotal, the 7FBMF-S provides increased speed with leading levels of safety. It is ideal for cross-docking operations where quick sortation and movement of goods is required. It may also provide a solution for companies that use engine trucks intensively, and now need an alternative to reduce noise and fuel emissions.

Efficiency can be further improved when the 7FBMF-S is used in conjunction with Toyota’s exclusive side exit battery transfer system. This system means batteries are changed using a side exit on the truck, ensuring a simple but fast changeover and allowing the operator to continue to use the truck at all times.

To provide an optimum mix of speed, safety and comfort the 7FBMF-S features state-of-the-art technology including Toyota’s System of Active Stability (SAS), a safety system which protects the driver and the load, and Operator Total Care (OTC) package.
