The key to success for many high volume office and warehouse environments is keeping valuable employees healthy and injury free.  This can be difficult if those employees are required to tackle manually moving heavy supplies and products on a regular basis without the help of properly designed equipment.

Many busy office and warehouse environments receive deliveries of multiple boxes regularly throughout the week.  Hauling in and storing deliveries consisting of heavy boxes of paper, supplies and products can put undue physical stress on employees who don’t have access to equipment that can assist with the move.

An electric cart from DJ Products can provide an affordable, safe and convenient way for employees to get heavy materials from the receiving area to the appropriate storage area.  Electric carts from DJ Products are very easy to use and can move a heavy load at speeds of up to three miles per hour.  This allows any employee of your establishment, regardless of physical strength, to move product and supplies to the required destination with minimal risk of overexertion or injury.

The battery powered electric cart from DJ has an easily accessible safety stop switch that helps to eliminate any chance of accidents or injuries while operating the equipment.  This unit is also much smaller and easier to maneuver than many other motorized options which makes it a perfect choice for businesses with narrow aisles or cramped quarters to navigate.

Some deliveries need to be signed for and tended to immediately.  Having a piece of equipment like the electric cart from DJ Products available can allow any employee to safely process deliveries regardless of the size or weight of the boxes.

If you want to keep the customers that you have and eventually be able to serve to new ones, you’ve got to make sure that your picking and shipping departments can readily handle the volume.  Make sure that your warehouse is properly structured and organized to handle the volume of orders that you are doing and provide your employees with safe and reliable equipment like the electric carts from DJ Products.
