Transport & Distribution

Loading and unloading big and heavy loads

Heavier loads usually arrive on trains or lorries and require more powerful trucks. You want your truck to easily access the cargo compartment and move the loads on and off. If you're loading and unloading outside, your truck must be suitable for uneven surfaces, adapted for different weather conditions, and other factors.

Smaller loads and deliveries

A compact, agile, and energy-efficient truck is suitable for transporting smaller loads and making deliveries. A popular request is the ability to operate the truck from within the cargo space all the way to the delivery point. It's likely that recharging your truck while on the road will be impossible, which is why good battery capacity is so important.

Inside & outside

Transport and distribution can sometimes demand trucks adapted for both inside and outside use. Counterbalance trucks are ideal in these cases, just make sure that:  

  • the power source fits your purposes 
  • the tires are suitable for all intended surfaces and 
  • the height of the truck and/or mast is low enough to fit through all doors.  

Power source

Power source Driving emissions Noise Continuous operation
Engine Yes Medium Yes
Electric No Low Yes* (with battery change)


Tire type Construction Shock absorbing Risk of puncture
Pneumatic tire Air-filled Yes Yes
Cushion tire Solid No No


There are two measurements you need to consider:

  • the truck's highest point with forks lowered and
  • the amount of free lift available with the different mast types.
