Why invest in intelligent forks?

65 % of all accidents are caused by hitting or running over persons or obstacles

Accidents are a sad but constant reality. In 2016 alone there were 12,671 notifiable accidents in Germany, seven of which were fatal. Average damage costs lie about 85,000 €. Not to mention numerous minor collisions which cause disruptions and high internal expenditures.

Most frequent cause of accidents is human failure, as the forklift driver literally operates “flying blind”. SmartFork® support the driver through a better view, warning functions, improved visibility and intelligent sensors.
