Do you constantly seek for ways to be more efficient with product deliveries and reduce the physical demands on your drivers?
The old way of relying on manual labor to deliver your product is proving slow and inefficient—not to mention physically demanding on the delivery team! Companies are now looking to pre-wrap entire loads on pallets that can be off loaded using electrical liftgates and electrical pallet jacks. This allows for faster delivery of loads and greatly reduces the physical stress on delivery drivers opening up to a greater selection from the workforce.
Today’s leading delivery companies want intelligent electrical systems to keep liftgate batteries charged without impacting the tractor’s ability to start. There is a strong demand for efficiently keeping electric pallet jack batteries charged during operation as well.
Companies often run the pallet jack all day, and then take the pallet jack out of the trailer to the warehouse charging station at the end of the day. This is both time consuming and a waste of valuable warehouse space. It also subjects the pallet jack batteries to continual deep discharge, resulting in much shorter lifespans for these batteries.
Purkeys Fleet Electric answers this problem with our TAPS KIT (Trailer Auxiliary Power System.) The TAPS Kit converts DC power from the tractor to AC power in the trailer. The system allows the pallet jack to be plugged into an AC power receptacle within the trailer and be charged from its onboard charger. The TAPS Kit only operates while the tractor is running, so it does not impact the tractor’s ability to start while keeping the pallet jack batteries at or near a 100% state of charge. The electrical systems in the tractor and trailer are kept in balance so that both operate as designed.
Our TAPS Kit has been embraced by major beverage companies and other major fleets throughout the USA. The system is designed to be easily installed and require little maintenance. To learn more about how the TAPS Kit can improve your deliveries, talk to a Purkeys Fleet Electric expert today.
