Due to the increasing warehouse rents in North America over the past few years, retailers and owners are looking to maximize the amount of usable warehouse space in their existing facilities.
One solution for this has been reconfiguring warehouse setups with narrower aisles and adopting the use of a wide variety of specialist very narrow aisle (VNA) materials handling units like reach truck forklifts.
