Topper is the leading material handling solutions provider in the fork truck free movement in North America. Utilizing the right equipment and material handling cart delivery is key.

At Topper Industrial, we have recognized two definitions of what it means to be “fork truck free.” The first and most common definition is minimal fork truck use. Fork trucks in these applications are only allowed at the shipping and receiving areas within the company’s material flow. The second definition is 100% fork truck free. The materials in these applications are carried or delivered with carts and cart systems. There are no fork trucks used at all in a company’s material flow. Most of the time, fork trucks are not allowed. Fork Truck Free Cart Delivery systems exist within both definitions

Fork Truck Free Cart Delivery is the use of industrial carts to move material without the use of fork trucks (also, termed as fork lifts).  Cart Delivery is the use of industrial carts to deliver material to a designated area.  Industrial carts can be pushed or pulled by a material handler and they can be tugged or pulled in a train of multiples. There are various types of industrial carts used daily worldwide.

Material flow using a cart system works in two ways. Companies can deliver material on carts and work with out of that cart or companies can have material delivered using a transfer cart and transfer the material by roller to a work station.

Topper Industrial creates custom carts for unique applications. Topper industrial classifies carts as follows: Static Carts, Tilt Carts, Rotate Carts, Quad Steer, Transfer Carts, Specialty Carts and Mother Daughter Cart Systems.
