Vna Training Courses Delivered At Your Premises
Very Narrow Aisle lift trucks come in a variety of styles, from ridged body to articulated middle joints.They can be used for stacking loads, stock replenishment and medium and high level order picking. They are only steered by the operator when transferring from one stacking aisle to another.Once in the stacking aisle the trucks are steered automatically (they can be either wire or rail guided). The most common type of vna truck is the "man up", which means the operator within the cab, goes up in the air with the forks and load, thus making it quicker and easier to deposit or retrieve a load.
