Operator Training

In today’s fast-moving world of logistics, the demand for speed of operation and “right-the-first-time” quality standards mean that many companies are continually searching for new and improved methods of materials handling and storage. Truck technology can play a major part, but the human factor in material handling remains key.

Making the most of man and machine

Significant benefits can be measured by establishing the best possible relationship between man and machine. Toyota Forklift has always recognised this, which is why we have an unrivalled reputation for ergonomic truck design.

Virtually every truck in the Toyota Forklift range has programmable performance parameters, to suit the operator and the application. All training programmes from Toyota Forklift are designed to maximise the benefits that can be derived from an effective man-machine interface – after all, that is our business!

Damage limitation

The cost of damage in handling operations can be extremely significant and Toyota Forklift has worked with many customers to help improve driver knowledge and performance levels. Furthermore, we arrange annual truck driver championships that encourage recognition of the vital role of the truck driver – further improving skills and endorsing high driving standards.

Genuine Spare Parts

To maximise the lifetime of your forklift trucks and guarantee the highest levels of safety, all genuine Toyota Forklift spare parts are made to the strictest standards and specifications. And by using genuine parts you will help guarantee maximum uptime – not to mention reduce the risk and cost of unnecessary repairs. What is more, the supply of original parts is guaranteed for up to 10 years after production stops.
