Toyota Material Handling launches Semi-Automated Order Picking Trucks

Toyota Material Handling have launched two order picking trucks equipped with the remote drive feature t-mote to help increase productivity in picking processes, improve ergonomics by reducing operators’ fatigue and contribute to a safer work environment.

Order picking is a labour-intensive process. Operators of traditional order picker trucks are frequently stepping on and off their trucks in order to pick goods and to move their trucks to the next picking location. This is a repetitive and time-consuming activity for the operator.
