In a few weeks at ProMat in Chicago the reasons for rapid Fork Truck Free (FTF) growth in North America will be carefully examined.  Ed Brown, CEO and Founder of Topper Industrial will explain what needs to be considered for FTF Cart Delivery systems.

Brown suggested some basic questions to consider:

  • What is the plant size?
  • What is the load?
  • What type of cart is best-suited for the job?
  • When should it move?
  • How much needs to be moved at a time?
  • What type of containers need to be moved?
  • How often should it move?
  • What is the size of each load?
  • Can the timing be scheduled?
  • What type of Tube and Joint is best?

Brown added, “Cart systems can be designed and developed to fit the footprint of any floorplan.”

Topper Industrial is offering an educational seminar at ProMat 2017, the largest expo for the manufacturing and supply chain industries from April 3-6, 2016 in Chicago, IL.
