Electric Pallet Truck
An Electric Pallet Truck, also known as an electric pallet jack or powered pallet truck, is a motorized piece of equipment designed for lifting, moving, and transporting palletized goods within warehouses, distribution centers, and other storage facilities. It uses an electric motor and rechargeable battery to operate, allowing for easier and more efficient handling of heavy loads compared to manual pallet jacks. Electric pallet trucks are commonly used to improve productivity, reduce worker fatigue, and enhance safety in material handling operations.

Example or usage in road freight logistics:
A logistics company operating a large distribution center uses Electric Pallet Trucks to streamline its material handling operations. The electric pallet trucks are used to efficiently move palletized goods from inbound trucks to storage areas, and from storage areas to outbound trucks for shipment to customers. By using electric pallet trucks, the company can handle a larger volume of goods with fewer workers, reduce the risk of injury due to manual lifting, and improve overall productivity.
