East Penn recently released a new, comprehensive whitepaper to help anyone who purchases, manages, or operates a forklift fleet in today’s material handling and logistics profession select the best battery power solution. Electric batteries power almost 2/3 of all forklift trucks in North America. Maximizing forklift performance requires matching the right battery technology and charging practices to your fleet’s needs.
East Penn provides a fair and objective assessment of technology types as the company offers both a full range of Deka lead-based designs and Deka Ready Power lithium batteries.
This whitepaper was designed to help tackle today’s material handling challenges and guides the reader on a step-by-step analysis of their facility, and assists in finding their best solution. It covers key topics such as Power and Performance (specifically Equivalent Battery Units (EBU’s)), Cost and Maintenance, Infrastructure Capabilities, Product Technology (lead and lithium-ion), and Sustainability.
