HEAVY TRUCK

Geolean’s lean solutions for the heavy truck industry can transform your processes by enhancing efficiency, maximizing use of space, and reducing unnecessary motion and handling. Heavy truck manufacturers balance high volume fleet builds with low volume unit builds and the material flow system needs to work effectively in all environments. Forklifts are often used because parts are either large or heavy, but we have successfully worked with heavy truck manufacturers to eliminate fork trucks and create real material flow.

CUSTOMIZED SOLUTIONS

 

TOW CARTS

Manufacturers of heavy trucks are moving away from the use of forklifts as the primary means of material flow. If your goal is to go forklift free, our cart systems can solve the point a to point b movement in safe and efficient ways. We design carts that accommodate any type of top hat or material, from packaged to raw parts, and we can create modular cart systems using mother daughter carts, tow carts, and sequence carts that work together seamlessly.

REUSEABLE PACKAGING

Production volume changes and high levels of vehicle customization can make standard, reusable packaging a challenge for heavy truck manufacturers.

 

However, looking a bit deeper at the part mix and standard options shows that there are plenty of applications for reusable packaging that will save money and improve quality.

MOBILE WORKSTATIONS

No matter what you’re assembling, our work cells are designed to meet the needs of the components and the operator, with ergonomic comfort as well as part presentation, inbound and outbound material flow, and efficient use of space in mind. Large vehicles present access challenges that can be addressed with mobile workstations to keep items within easy reach.
