Ask anyone and they’re likely to agree that 2020 has been anything but normal. Since the pandemic hit the world in full force in the beginning of the year, businesses everywhere have had to learn to adapt rapidly – cutting budgets, streamlining operations, possibly furloughing or laying off employees, and finding ways to do more with less manpower.
Companies in a variety of industries can benefit from our solutions – from apartment complexes maneuvering heavy trash bins, to manufacturing operations moving semi-trailers in and out of docks, to factory workers moving equipment along an assembly line.
Below are three reasons why purchasing an electric tug or tow solution can help improve the way you do business.
Invest in Employee Safety
Keeping your team members safe is paramount. The last thing that businesses want to allocate funds to workers compensation claims from on-the-job injuries sustained while manually maneuvering heavy equipment. Our cost-effective battery-powered units allow one person to safely move heavy equipment from point A to point B without causing strains or pain from trying to push or pull wheeled equipment.
Additionally, our products are perfect for social distancing; one person can maneuver heavy loads versus the need for multiple employees in close proximity to one another moving equipment manually.
Boost Operational Efficiency
Throughout the pandemic, slowing sales (domestically and internationally) have forced businesses to find innovative ways to increase efficiency throughout their business while simultaneously decreasing the workforce. Our solutions allow one person to get the job done; reducing the number of employees needed to complete a task and improving efficiency. Our battery-powered tow solutions allow for fast maneuverability cutting down on supply chain lags.
Budgets: Use Them or Lose Them
For many departments, annual budgets operate on a “use it or lose it” principle; if not utilized by year-end or fiscal year-end, the funds will expire and may not be carried over. Considering a material handling solution is an excellent investment to help your employees easily and safely relocate heavy equipment or materials in a more efficient manner.
