Material handling equipment – pallet trucks

If you use IBCs or other heavy liquid storage containers you will need some way to transport them around the factory or just manoeuvre them into position. Most of these containers come supplied on pallets so a forklift may be able to do some of the initial hard work for you. But a forklift cannot always get into hard to reach places or places with limited head-height. The tool to use here of course is a pallet truck.
