Forklift IoT solutions offer advantages that allow facilities to gain efficiency in enterprise resource planning or ERP systems. Thanks to the Internet of Things technology, warehouse procedures solutions are produced that bring together workers and forklifts to create an orderly and efficient workflow. Forklift IoT solutions, which enable the development of smart forklift systems, not only use warehouse space more efficiently but also save time and money by completing routine tasks quickly, reducing labor costs.
Forklift IoT solutions arise as a need for increasing demands in warehouse solutions. Various industries such as retail, e-commerce, automotive, consumer goods, and many other industries resort to various solutions to make their products or assets operate in the most efficient way. Forklift IoT solutions come into play at this point and create various systems such as forklift route optimization and warehouse utilization.
Forklift Route Optimization
One of the advantages that come with Forklift IoT solutions is asset tracking. The asset tracking system uses beacons that provide real-time location data of forklifts. Thanks to real-time location tracking, it becomes possible to provide forklift route optimization. With the data obtained in this system, analyses such as fuel costs, the time of drivers, and the number of forklifts needed to emerge. As a result of all these analyzes, it can be ensured that the drivers use the most optimum route. By obtaining complete and precise data, optimum and most effective routes can be found for drivers.
The forklift route optimization system provides superior success in searching for inactive vehicles, knowing the exact location of each asset, and better planning warehouse usage by seeing who is doing what task in real-time. Thanks to Forklift IoT solutions, it may be possible to achieve greater efficiency and reduce costs.
Forklift Warehouse Utilization
Warehouse improvements included in Forklift IoT solutions allow the creation of a comprehensive management system. It becomes possible to install a forklift management system for the management of forklifts located in a warehouse. In this context, it is possible to prevent traffic formation by regulating the positions of forklifts. Thanks to advanced visualization systems, besides the routes of each forklift, additional measures are taken to streamline traffic and eliminate bottlenecks.
Among the tools offered to you within the scope of Forklift IoT solutions are Heat Maps that show how the traffic density is distributed within the facility and Spaghetti diagrams that visualize the traffic flow in the warehouse.
Forklift Safety Solutions
Forklift IoT solutions aim not only to provide efficiency in terms of time, energy and money but also to create a safer work environment. According to a report by the British Safety Council, 25% of workplace transport injuries are caused by forklift accidents. The latest accident statistics show that forklifts are officially the most dangerous form of workplace transport.
In this context, it is very important to know where people are moving within the facility and to know where each forklift is. While employee location tracking is used for pedestrians, collision avoidance systems for forklifts come to the fore. With forklift collision avoidance systems, for example, it becomes possible for a forklift to be automatically slowed down when approaching an intersection or approaching an employee. Indoor monitoring systems, on the other hand, provide a comprehensive control advantage for managers.
Various alerts can be created within the scope of Forklift IoT solutions. For example, by determining prohibited areas in the warehouse, forklifts can be prohibited from entering these areas. It is possible to set alerts not only according to the position of the forklift but also to excessive driving speed. Forklift IoT solutions improve the compliance of forklifts with access rules, prevent forklift damage and increase overall workplace safety.
