For the standardization and versatility of forklifts, they are widely used in factories, mines, warehouses, stations, ports, airports, freight yards, distribution centers and distribution centers, and can be used in cabins, cars and containers, for parts, packages and pallets. Containers and other components are loaded, unloaded, stacked, unloaded, and transported in short distances. They are essential equipment for pallet transportation and container transportation.
