Electric Lift Trucks & Pallet Jacks

Electric Lift Trucks & Pallet Jacks

Class 1, 2, and 3 electric lift trucks and pallet jacks account for two-thirds of warehouse lift equipment. This existing installed base of battery chargers for lift trucks is a largely untapped source of LCFS credits. Lift truck revenue potential from LCFS varies with battery capacity and vehicle operational workload.

Better for the Environment,
Better for Revenue

Battery electric has long been a preferred fuel source for MHE in many applications. The income potential of LCFS raises the appeal of going electric to an even greater share of the material handling market. New lithium battery options for lift trucks allow faster charging and facilitate heavy use of electric lift trucks without battery changing. They also offer a more energy efficient storage of electricity, and do not require maintenance like flooded lead acid batteries.

The Proof is in the Numbers Taking advantage of the LCFS credit program helps our clients add a great source of quarterly revenue—without changing their day-to-day operations.
