One of the critical factors influencing this is your choice of material handling equipment. With over 60 years in the industry, ASCO Equipment stands out as the premier choice when it comes to providing top-notch solutions for warehouse efficiency.

The Importance of Material Handling in Warehouses

Economical material handling is the backbone of smooth warehouse operations. From receiving and storing to picking and shipping, the right equipment streamlines processes minimizes errors and enhances overall productivity.

In a landscape where time is money, having the appropriate material handling equipment can substantially improve your bottom line and customer satisfaction.

Exploring the Range: Forklifts by ASCO

At ASCO, we understand that not all environments have the same requirements. To cater to diverse needs, we offer an array of CAT Lift Trucks, Bobcat, Crown, Mitsubishi, Jungheinrich, and Kalmar forklifts, each designed for specific tasks and applications. Let’s explore a few of the different types available:

Pneumatic Forklifts

Ideal for outdoor use, these forklifts feature durable, air-filled tires (or pneumatic-shaped solid tires) that provide excellent traction on uneven surfaces. They are perfect for handling heavy loads in construction yards, lumberyards, and other outdoor settings.

Electric Forklifts

Electric forklifts are an eco-conscious choice, producing zero emissions during operation. This not only contributes to a cleaner environment but also aligns with the increasing emphasis on sustainability in the business world.

Internal Combustion Forklifts

Powered by internal combustion engines, these forklifts are suitable for a wide range of applications. With the ability to operate in both indoor and outdoor environments, combustion forklifts are versatile and powerful. The flexibility of fuel types can meet any need or safety requirement utilizing diesel, liquid propane, or an LP/gasoline dual-fuel engine.

Beyond Forklifts – Tools You Need to Get the Job Done

While traditional forklifts do the majority of the heavy lifting in the warehouse world, there is a wide range of additional material-handling equipment that can improve efficiency. We proudly sell machines from industry-leading manufacturers, including Doosan, Crown, and Jungheinrich.

Stand-Up Counterbalance Forklifts

Offering a balance between efficiency and operator comfort, stand-up riders are perfect for tasks that require frequent dismounting. They are commonly used indoors loading, unloading and stacking pallets on service docks. Standing enhances worker alertness, which improves safety and productivity.

Walk-Behind Forklifts

Compact and maneuverable, walk-behind forklifts are perfect for confined spaces. Their ease of use makes them an excellent choice for small warehouses where space optimization is crucial.

Pantograph Reach Trucks

Designed for high stacking in narrow aisles, reach trucks are indispensable for maximizing vertical storage space. Their ability to navigate tight spaces makes them suitable for warehouses with high-density storage requirements.

Pallet Trucks

Streamlining the movement of palletized goods, pallet trucks are essential for efficient loading and unloading. ASCO’s range of pallet trucks ensures that you have the right tool for the job, whether it’s manual or powered.
