Optimize Forklift Operations with an RTLS Tracking Solution
Forklifts are essential equipment within the manufacturing, transportation, and warehousing industries. They are both practical tools and valuable assets, but their inherent mobility poses certain safety risks and costly business expenses. With Sewio RTLS, organizations can maximize safety, increase profitability, and decrease costs with improved utilization of forklifts.
Benefits of Real-time Forklift Tracking
By tracking your forklifts, logistics managers are gaining full real-time visibility of their fleet – not only by knowing the exact location of each forklift in real-time but also by tracking their historical locations with pinpoint accuracy. This level of precise data will improve your operations and reduces overall costs by preventing accidents, wasted man-hours, and even adding unnecessary vehicles to your fleet. An RTLS allows businesses to maximize productivity with benefits such as:
- Real-time Data and Historical Insights into Forklift Operation
- Forklift Route Optimization, Warehouse Utilization, and Workflow Tracking
- Forklift Navigation and Prevention of Incorrect Unloads
- Increased Safety with Anti-collision System and Smart Forklift Alerts
- Prevention of Injuries Caused by Collapsing Pallet Racks and Shelving
- Quick and Effective Forklift Operator Training Using Virtual Reality
How Does RTLS Tracking Work?
RTLS forklift tracking lets you know exactly where your equipment is, where they have been, and how workers utilized them, which provides invaluable insights to reduce lost inventory and make better use of your warehouse and equipment.
Real-time forklift tracking works through a network of receivers picking up signals sent via UWB tags attached to the forklift, AVG, or any other manipulation vehicle. These signals are converted into location data in real time and within a 30 cm level of accuracy. These data points about the vehicle and its operator are sent on to the RTLS application software installed on the server, where they are interpreted and displayed in an easy-to-understand manner.
