Carer electric forklifts serving the steel industry

An increasing number of companies in the iron and steel industry are converting their fleet of forklifts from internal combustion to electric. Carer provides them a solution for handling large loads inside logistics centers and manufacturing plants.


The elimination of harmful emissions along with the attempt to improve their environmental footprint and the quality of their work environments are leading more and more industries to switch from forklifts with internal combustion engines to electric forklifts.

This is a trend that also involves the iron and steel industry, which is historically one of the most resistant to change due to the type of intensive handling required. While previously electric forklifts were not considered efficient enough to manage this type of work load, Carer is contributing to a change in the perception of the electric forklift.

In fact, the iron and steel industry is the area in which most machines express their maximum value, offering customers great reliability and excellent performance as well as the opportunity to significantly save on operating costs thanks to the use of electricity instead of the increasingly costly fuels.Carer also offers vehicles designed with special attention to operator ergonomics in order to facilitate the work, even during prolonged shifts. As usual, further attention is paid to battery changing operations, which can be performed quickly and in complete safety to ensure minimum downtime.
