Electric Pallet Jack Efficiency In Warehouse Operations

When it comes to effective warehouse management, being efficient is the most important aspect of keeping costs down and the supply chain running smoothly. For some spaces, a forklift may not be the best option and may require something a little more easy to use and maintain. Electric pallet jacks are a smart and efficient choice for many warehouses for a number of reasons:

  • They are cheaper to purchase
  • They are easier to maintain
  • They are easier to maneuver in small spaces
  • They are more compact and easier to store

The type of battery you use for your electric pallet jacks and stackers can greatly impact your warehouse efficiency and also lead to unnecessary costs. Although lead-acid batteries are slightly cheaper, they are bulky, require routine maintenance that can waste time and energy, and can be affected by opportunity charging throughout the day. Lithium-ion batteries, specifically Lithium Iron Phosphate or LiFeP04 batteries, require zero maintenance, hold a charge much longer, and offer up to 10x the lifespan of your traditional lead-acid pallet jack batteries.
