With truss business continuing to grow, Load Star needed a better way to manage the extra truss volume once the builds were done, and also needed to lay out the yard for better efficiency. As a result, Load Star received a new Combilift multi-directional forklift, which combines the features of a counterbalanced forklift, side loader and very narrow aisle (VNA) truck in one vehicle. With the addition of this new machine, Load Star can increase the outdoor storage capacity. The Combilift allows for easier movement of trusses, especially the long and unwieldy ones, which simplifies the maneuvering to job staging areas in the yard. Fewer maneuvers to get the trusses where they need to go means improved safety and efficiency, resulting in more efficient shipment loading and better service.
Check out the video showing the maneuvers the Combilift is capable of while carrying a load of trusses.
