Vecna tuggers and industrial carts add value when transporting within and between manufacturing plants and warehouses. Line side delivery of raw materials to the plant floor is only one consideration in the value proposition of carts and tuggers. Logistics management recognizes Topper Industrial because of patented designs that make operations more efficient, reduce noise levels, improve ergonomics, and safety. These carts are being tugged requiring less effort, as operators transport goods from warehouses to assembly lines and then to finished goods warehouses.
In the past, forklift operators were only able to transport one container of goods at a time to the production line. Once they unloaded a container, they had to return to the warehouse to refill their empty container before they could distribute products to another position on the production line.
By using a Vecna tugger and cart system, operators unload products and replace empty containers on the production line multiple times in a single pass. This approach decreases the potential for employee injuries, improves ergonomics (primarily since operators have more time to focus on other projects) and reduces noise since the tuggers and carts are often only transported to production lines once. As a result, carts are becoming more specialized, especially as their popularity continues to increase in nearly every industry that manufactures products.
