Yale Lift Truck Technologies announced that its Reliant forklift operator assist offering is available on over 50 different Yale forklift models.

Yale Lift Truck Technologies announced the availability of its Reliant forklift operator assist offering on an additional 16 Yale models at MODEX 2024 in Atlanta.

The new entrants to the Yale Reliant lineup are predominantly warehouse lift trucks. This expansion brings Reliant’s availability to 59 Yale models covering a wide range of applications, including those common in retail and e-commerce fulfillment, wholesale distribution and third-party logistics operations.

Reliant expansion, ADS technology highlighted at MODEX

The Reliant expansion includes several models that weren’t previously available for standard order with the technology, along with additional capacities or configurations of models for which only select variations were available previously.

Very narrow aisle (VNA) turret trucks, narrow aisle reach trucks engineered with a smaller frame for tight retail environments like stockrooms, and the straddle, furniture and standard order picker models are all newly available with Yale Reliant. Center riders, tow tractors, enclosed end riders and reach trucks were already available with the technology, but the latest portfolio expansion extends availability to additional capacities and configurations of those models. 

Along with the Reliant news, Yale also announced its new advanced dynamic stability (ADS) system at MODEX. The company held conversations to provide a deeper understanding of ADS’ underlying technology, and offered personalized demonstrations that featured other technologies in the Yale Reliant suite like object detection, proximity detection and real-time location sensing.

“The interest that this technology continues to attract,” said Joe Koch, emerging technology sales manager at Yale. “Whether at the industry’s leading tradeshows or reflected in the thousands of trucks commercially deployed with it, speaks to forklift accident prevention as a critical priority for today’s warehouses.”

Yale Reliant keeps the operator in ultimate control of the lift truck, but depending on the package selected, automatically applies interventions in response to compromised stability, obstacles detected in the path of travel or in close proximity and even based on rules specified for certain areas of the warehouse.
