As an employer, one of your main priorities is to ensure that your employees are equipped with the correct tools and equipment to complete their jobs, whilst remaining safe and efficient. This is especially important when it comes to moving inventory around a warehouse environment.
With the exposure to potential risks, it’s important that employers take steps to protect staff whilst they are at work. Specifically, in warehouses, moving heavy loads can lead to injuries and therefore sick absences. Which in turn has an impact on a business’s bottom line.
This is where Tractive Power can support businesses. As a producer of innovative manual handling equipment, we provide businesses across the world with our products. Our tugs and power pushers help warehouse businesses to move products from A to B with ease.
How can warehouse businesses benefit from using tugs?
Reduce the risk of injury
Manual handling injuries are common in many warehouses across the world. Often caused by lifting heavy loads, awkward postures and repetitive motions, plus straining. Our tugs and pushers allow staff to move heavy objects without needing to maul or struggle. Thus helping to reduce the risk of strains, sprains and similar injuries which can inhibit employees from completing their daily tasks.
Moving products around a warehouse is a time-consuming, yet unavoidable aspect of operations. This movement can lead to downtime and therefore decreased productivity. However, by utilising manual handling equipment, such as electric tugs, and pushers, you can improve efficiency. As our equipment is designed to easily and quickly move large loads, that would otherwise, if moved manually, would take more time and effort.
Flexibility of use
Our battery-powered tugs are highly versatile. They can be used to move a range of loads, including pallets, carts and cages. Making them an ideal solution for various warehouses that deal in both very specific and non-specific load types. As well as in warehouses with changing business needs. You can use our tugs to move inventory and items from A to B, no matter their form. Meaning you can adapt to changing demands and improve overall flexibility.
Investing in manual handling equipment can help you to save money in the long run. By reducing the risk of injury you can avoid costly workers’ compensation claims, and paying for sickness absence. With electric tugs, employees can complete more jobs in less time, which means less money is spent on wages and bigger profit margins.
Our range of manual handling equipment is designed to be ergonomically friendly. They are easy to operate, only require a single operator and we also provide training on how to best use our products. Requiring minimal physical excursion, our tugs help your employees work comfortably and reduce their exposure to potential risks.
Tugs for warehouses
Our battery-powered tugs and pishers are perfect for warehouse environments. Giving you the ability to move heavy loads from 5,000kg to 12,000kg. Meaning employees can move loads that would otherwise be impossible to move manually.
One of our most popular pieces of equipment is the TP 250 vehicle mover. Commonly used in a range of sectors, but is very popular in the automotive sector. Utilised to relocate vehicle parts between build stations in warehouses. With a maximum speed of 6kph, and a lifting power of 1,000w. The compact footprint of the electric tug makes it perfect for warehouse relocation.
Tractive Power has been working with a wide variety of clients, sectors and industries to provide innovative solutions to their manual handling issues. In some situations, a standard electric tug doesn’t 100% meet the needs of a client. However, because of our extensive experience and knowledge, we can provide bespoke tugs and movers if requested. We are able to tailor a product to suit your specific needs, where you can select your own castors, wheels, brakes, and other safety add-ons you require.
