Magline CooLift Delivery System Profiled in Industrial Supply

LogoMagliner CooLift Delivery System was profiled in Industry Supply trade magazine. According to the publication, the CooLift System combines an easily maneuverable and high capacity hydraulic lifting truck with integrated plastic “half” pallets for improved safety and efficiency. According to Industrial Supply online, “With the CooLift Delivery System, product can be delivered to the store with up to 50% reduction in driver product touches. Orders are built directly onto a CooLift pallet inside the warehouse, and then loaded into trailers using traditional fork lifts with CooLift Pallet Adapters. At the delivery location, drivers can transfer product to its final destination through a traditional door, unlike with full-size pallets, because of the CooLift pallets’ compact size. Combined, these time-saving features have provided proven cost-effectiveness for customers across North America. The CooLift systems have demonstrably increased delivery efficiency, improved driver retention and longevity, and provided for lower fleet operating costs.”
