Straddle loader for last-mile delivery

by Inside Logistics Online Staff
The InnoLIFT is easy to use.

InnoLIFT USA introduces the XXL Straddle Loader which speeds and simplifies pallet-load deliveries.

This loader lifts its load and itself into and out of virtually any delivery vehicle, including Mercedes Sprinter, Ford Transit and Ram ProMaster cargo vans, box trucks and semi- trailers.

The XXL Straddle Loader allows operators to load and unload open and closed bottom pallets weighing up to 1,100 pounds, with other InnoLIFT models available for heavier weights. One person can deliver materials to a loading dock or a street-level facility, replacing liftgates, ramps, hoists and conventional pallet jacks.

InnoLIFT self-lifting loaders can be used for virtually any last-mile delivery need.

The ergonomic design improves delivery efficiency while reducing employee fatigue, workplace injury and employee turnover. It can eliminate the use of conventional pallet jacks for deliveries to facilities without loading docks and eliminates the waiting time for a loading dock to open up – thus speeding the delivery and enhancing overall safety and efficiency. It can also allow the use of smaller delivery vehicles.

Both manual push and electric-powered walk-behind models are available, all featuring hydraulic lift. All units can be charged en-route in delivery vehicle or in host facility.

Unlike exterior-mount forklifts, InnoLIFT rides with the load and is protected from the elements.

InnoLIFTs are easy to operate. First, load the cargo into the van, truck or delivery vehicle. Next pull the support legs out and raise the chassis up electronically. Push the support legs back in and walk the Innolift and cargo into the van. Just secure the load and it’s ready to go.

Upon arrival at delivery site, the process is simply reversed.  A video demonstration is available.

All InnoLIFT USA products are backed by a one-year parts warranty with extended parts warranty and financing also available.

InnoLIFT USA is a division of Frendix USA, which is the exclusive North American distributor for the InnoLIFT and Frendix brands. InnoLIFTs are made in Finland and used throughout the world for ergonomic delivery of a wide range of products.
