Lift Truck Fleet Replacement & Acquisition Strategies: Long Term Strategies That Focus on Saving Dollars Instead of Cents
About This Webinar:
The Economic life of capital equipment is the expected period of time during which an asset is useful to the average owner. Estimating the economic life of an asset is important for businesses so that they can determine when it is worthwhile to invest in new equipment and they can allocate appropriate funds to purchase replacements once the equipment has exceeded its useful life. Why are lift truck fleet replacement strategies so important? First, they help to minimize unexpected downtime while working to maximize productivity. For example, an older truck may need more frequent and costly repairs which can result in more downtime than you can afford to have. Secondly, not having an effective fleet replacement strategy can result in increased equipment, labor, maintenance, energy and insurance expenses. Further, industry surveys have found that many companies without documented replacement strategies for their lift truck fleet tend to have 10%-20% more lift trucks than needed. For most companies, reducing just one lift truck from their fleet would conservatively save over $30,000 a year in labor and other operational costs.
In addition to understanding how to determine when a piece of equipment has surpassed its useful economic life is it also important to develop a comprehensive financial acquisition strategy to purchase new equipment. This will allow you to have the appropriate capital budgeted for and will most likely help you save money when the time comes to purchase.
From the perspectives of Fleet Optimization and Financial Specialists, you will learn how to:
-Develop metrics that will allow you to properly determine when your lift truck has reached the end of its economic, life.
-Develop a comprehensive fleet replacement strategy
-Determine a financial acquisition strategy for the purchase of new trucks
-Prepare for financial impacts such as taxes, deductions, changes in economy, etc.
-Recognize key factors for program success

Warehouse Safety: It's No Accident
Every year there are roughly 5.2 recordable accidents for every 100 workers in the United States, which are estimated to cost employers in excess of $100 Million annually.
The sad truth is that many of these accidents are completely avoidable if the proper safety protocols were implemented and the required safety training was conducted. Due to the substantial human and financial toll these accidents can have, OSHA has made a point of fining companies for violations. These fines can cost your company between $7,000 and $70,000 per violation.
From the real-world perspective of an experienced industry expert you will gain insight into best practices to ensure your operation is a safe and productive environment.
