Cover Story Art Sobczak

Donald Trump’s sales and success lessons Donald Trump. Just the name itself sets off a variety of polarizing emotions and opinions. Regardless of how you feel about him politically or personally — I am keeping my opinion on that completely out of this — there is no denying that he has been a tremendous business and media success. And regardless of whether you agree with his methods, anyone can learn from some of his strategies and philosophies. Let’s take a look. Personal branding. Trump has said that people “…will know a gold standard brand because the name will stand for the gold standard. It takes the guesswork out.” People pay Trump to put his name on real estate developments, golf courses, clothing, and more. Do you set yourself apart? Regardless of what you sell, what no competitor has is YOU. I was listening to a top sales rep’s calls and a prospect said, “I can get your product from a hundred other vendors cheaper. Why would I buy from you?” She replied with, “Yes, you could get the product. But you won’t get me. Here’s what you will get…”

Passion is power. Trump feels that the main ingredient for success is energy. Nothing great can ever be accomplished without “amazing” levels of energy, and energy comes from passion. So what’s the lesson? You need to have, or acquire passion for what you do. Then you will always have the energy to accomplish your dreams. He says, “Without passion you don’t have energy; without energy you have nothing. It’s necessary in order to withstand the challenges and difficulties one will face.” Think big. I’ve used this quote from Donald Trump for years, since I first read his first book, “The Art of the Deal,” in 1987: “I like thinking big. I always have. To me it’s very simple: if you’re going to be thinking anyway, you might as well think big.” Sales is a 24/7 profession. Over the years any time you would see Trump in an interview or on his own show he was a walking billboard for his own clothing line. And he would always drop in references to his properties, his golf courses, and other projects. Always building his brand and image. This is also related to the passion mentioned earlier. Do you switch it off when you leave the office. Or, do you LIVE sales and are you always on the lookout for ideas you can use in your Contributed photo

Cover Story prospecting and selling? I text myself almost every day when I am out and see or hear a sales situation or story I can use and share with you. Fearless failure. Like every massively successful person, Trump has had his share of setbacks. In regards to failures he has said, “It’s a blip, not a catastrophe.” He has made billions, lost billions, and made them back. Companies he has been a part of have filed Chapter 11 FOUR times. (Although he personally has never filed for bankruptcy.) His airline, and vodka brand failed. But he seems to be doing pretty well. A mistake some salespeople make is dwelling on their no’s instead of their successes. You have to wade through the no’s and setbacks to get to the deals. And you do forget about the no’s, while you enjoy the fruits of your sales many times over. Quality is king. Similar to the branding mentioned earlier, Trump believes in being the best, doing the best, being associated with the best. He says, “I build quality things. It’s a very important word to me. I out-quality everybody. That’s why my buildings do better, why my clubs do better, and why my projects do better. So whatever you’re doing, do it with quality. Be the best at what you do.” Power through everything — even the crap. Trump says, “I see so many people who have a lot of ability, but they quit. They lose faith. They lose confidence. They just don’t take it to the end. I always tell people, ‘Never quit.’ Obviously, you need the brainpower, which you’re born with one way or the other.

But I see so many people with all of the abilities and they give up. You’ll never make it unless you overcome the fears and the inhibitions and stick with what you’re doing. There will be good days and there will be tough days, but stick with it.” Get the Word Out. In “The Art of the Deal” Trump wrote, “You can have the most wonderful product in the world but if people don’t know about it, it’s not going to be worth much. There are singers in the world with a voice as good as Frank Sinatra’s, but they’re singing in their garages because no one has ever heard of them. You need to generate interest, and you need to create excitement.” So true on so many levels. You probably have companies in your industry that are no better product or service-wise than anyone else, and/or individuals — maybe even in your own company — who are crushing it. What sets them apart? Trump also has said, “I play to people’s fantasies. People may not always think big themselves but they can still get very excited by those who do. That’s why a little hyperbole never hurts. People want to believe that something is the biggest and the greatest and the most spectacular. I call it truthful hyperbole. It’s an innocent form of exaggeration and a very effective form of promotion.” Regardless of whether you like him, despise him, or are indifferent, we all can benefit from some of Donald Trump’s common sense success principles and actions.

Downtime is costly! If you are reading this article I can feel comfortable in saying that in all likelihood you are in the equipment business. I have spent a life time in the equipment business so before you critique this article as a repeat of what has been said before, realize that you are probably 100% right. If but one of you reading this article finally recognizes that what is being said makes sense and agrees to making some changes, then I’ll feel more than gratified. Years ago an association manager, good friend and client commented to me that “I was a dealer person, and that I stood up for and assisted through my work to help equipment dealers make a profit in their operation. His comment could not have made me prouder. My mission statement for our clients has always been that I will assist the equipment dealer to: 1) improve sales, 2) improve profitability and, 3) increase customer satisfaction indexes. Surveys consistently point out that customers purchasing equipment are interested with this question: Is the dealership concerned with taking care of my needs after the sale? Will the dealer be there for me with the right parts if I should experience unscheduled downtime? Will the dealer be there for me when I need service at my most critical time? Farm equipment owners are concerned with whether or not their equipment will be operational when they need it for planting

or harvesting. Corporate operation people are concerned about tomorrow and whether their fleet of lift trucks will be ready to move loads from one spot to another in their distribution centers, factories or on their loading docks. Construction foremen are concerned with whether or not their crawlers will start when they have to move tons of material from one location to another, or dig a trench ten feet deep for a thousand feet through hard rock. Will the floor sweeper take care of sweeping the shopping mall on opening day? Will the greens mower be ready to mow the course’s greens to the exact length for tomorrow’s tournament, a tournament scheduled to be seen by millions on TV? Will homeowners be able to cut their acre of grass as well as the landscaper who has one hundred yards to cut a week? This concern goes on and on with customers buying product from thousands of equipment dealers in every industry! Are the dealers as anxious to service their customers after the sale as they are to sell their customers at the time of the sale? While customers may not lose sleep over their concern about unscheduled downtime, it is a concern that too few equipment dealers address thoroughly before, during or after the sale! In the equipment industry service is not a commodity! Worldclass equipment dealers will perform and provide quality service at a level un-heard of or recognized by average or mediocre equipment dealers. Top equipment dealers absolutely excel in the level of service provided to their customers. This worldclass service provides the dealer increased profitability on product sold and, a return by the customer to purchase more and more equipment from a world-class dealership. Providing world-class services is a win-win situation for every equipment dealer. It is that focused opportunity we have, so many times, spoken about in past articles. It is good to hear and to know that many manufacturers are back-peddling on their philosophy that the brand is selling the product. More and more they are recognizing that the quality and class of service provided by their successful dealer organization provides increased market share. We have mentioned on numerous occasions the dealer who, in the early years of his business serviced his customers out of his garage or in his back yard! He was the type of equipment dealer who knew from the start the quality of service his customers wanted; not free of charge, but at a price commensurate with the quality of service he consistently provided. He was a world class dealer! This dealer, through his quest to provide customers with world-class service after the sale, was also able to produce exceptional market share for his product, market share at a profit to the dealership, to his more than 700 employees and to himself. Years after he started his business he positioned himself to sell his company for a price he most certainly could not have imagined when he first turned his garage behind his home into a world-class full service dealership. He proved to the industry that by providing a one-stop shopping culture to customers, with terrific quality service to all customers, it is possible to achieve a high market share, while at the same time providing a high level of profit.

Aftermarket We have found after fifty plus years of working with equipment dealers that too many equipment dealers have a single focus. That focus is to achieve market share with the lines of equipment they select to market. Years ago many dealers viewed their service facilities and their service departments as little more than a necessary evil. They viewed this portion of their business as necessary to make equipment ready for sale and/or to perform warranty. They neglected to recognize the customers’ concern for avoiding unscheduled downtime. They neglected to fully recognize that product support and particularly the dealers’ service department was what brought the customer back time and time again to purchase more and more of the dealer’s equipment. Too many times they failed to operate their shops in a professional manner; they failed to operate it as a true profit center. The days of dealer entitlement are gone! For the equipment dealer it is imperative to understand the difference between intention and accomplishment. When you sell a commodity, and today most equipment is looked upon as a commodity, you have to out perform your competition. This is because all of your competitors make equipment that does the same thing as the product you sell. Intending to change won’t put more sales and more profit into the dealership. It will not create customer loyalty; it will not develop repeat business or customer retention. It is by adopting and accomplishing a unique customer focused service culture that your dealership will earn new and repeat business every time!

Culmination of being a world class, full-service, one-stop equipment dealer is enhancing the customer’s buying experience and this develops the dealership’s self-feeding-profit spiral. The self-feeding-profit-spiral will spiral upwards: 1) the equipment sales person evaluates the customer’s application and provides a piece of equipment that meets and exceeds the customer’s needs and requirements. 2) The parts and service department, along with the dealership’s Customer Service Representatives (CSRs) continues the process by evaluating and fulfilling the customer’s expectation and by providing the aftermarket products and services offered by the dealership. 3) Fulfilling the customer’s aftermarket needs generates additional equipment sales with improved profitability. 4) Additional new equipment sales generate more aftermarket opportunity and profitability. This upward spiral also feeds the dealership’s Absorption Rate and provides an improved cash flow for the dealership during business downturns. This is the dealer’s self-feeding-profit-spiral. Because the equipment dealer will be selling the value-added service of the dealership, more of the dealership’s line of product will be sold. As a rule, because of a value-added reputation for the dealership, more of the dealership’s line of product will be sold and as a general rule at a slightly higher margin. By increasing the sale of product, the dealership’s parts and service departments will have the opportunity to sell more services at higher levels of profitability. The equipment dealer gains through a much higher level of his return on assets.

Aftermarket It is your dealership’s choice as to which direction you desire to go. You need to decide whether or not you will be merely a supplier or a marketer! The difference between the two words is a simple matter of your dealership and your personnel becoming proactive rather than reactive. The dealership that decides to focus on value-added services will be proactive and will be a marketer and focused upon becoming a world class dealer operation. Special Offer to Readers: After Market Services has published a document on how to sell your dealership’s service to the customers who have purchased their equipment from you, but are using a competitor, an independent or providing their own service through their own shop and with their own “hired hands.” There are two additional manuals entitled: The Sales Call and Sales Psychology, both retailing for $15.95. All three of these manuals are written for the Equipment Dealers’ Customer Support Sales Representative. Simply e-mail your request for these three manuals, stating your name, your dealership and your dealership’s location, as well as your product line and your e-mail address, and the manuals will be sent to you along with an invoice in the amount of $16.95, which you will pay after the materials have been received.

Bottom Line Garry Bartecki

Shake it up baby! You know the next line “Twist and Shout.” Kind of apropos in this business climate at this time of the year. I don’t know about you but it is looking a little soft going into 2016...or is it looking a little better going into 2016. In either case it is only “looking” and not spectacular or depressing. On the other hand sometimes these soft times brings out the entrepreneur in some folks where they use this situation to take market share from their competitors. After all, if it is either struggle through another post-depression year or try something new, I for one would take the chance and go after the business. Now understand I am not suggesting any reckless behavior that would jeopardize shareholder value, but a well thought out plan than is managed and where managers are held accountable to meet their goals. Throwing a plan at the wall to see what sticks is not what I am referring to because in most cases this approach will only find a way to lose your investment and strain cash flow. Any plan you consider has to keep your core business and margin providers moving ahead full speed without any disruption to make the new plan work. In other words, parts, service and rental revenues as well as customer satisfaction need to remain at pre-plan levels with management watching that they do so. The plan needs to be fully vetted and documented. It has to have specific goals and processes in place to track results. There

have to be procedures in place to make decisions regarding problems. Staff has to know what is planned, how to implement the plan and how to measure and interpret the results and make changes as necessary. And of course, the C-level folks must be totally aware of how the program is progressing against cost and revenue estimates and when to cut the cord if necessary. Technology also has to be considered in the general sense in order to make it easier for customers to do business with you. Telematics, tablets for the techs and truck drivers will be commonplace in short order. Helping customers understand the benefits of rental using solid Big Data should help solidify new revenues from both existing and new customers. Technology also plays a part that helps with the talent recruiting process. It is no secret that the companies using the latest technology attract the better talent and operate more efficiently. If you decide to try some new strategies to improve your brand in the market and thus increase sales, please do it right and avoid using the less costly alternative that may do more to hurt your efforts than help. It always seems to turn out that customers will find a way to decipher if what you are doing is a benefit for them longterm or just a ploy that will not perform as promised. As long as you are making the investment you might as well have customers telling you how great the product or service is rather than saying it is not up to par. I guess we could apply this concept to your entire operation because this is the way to run a successful company. No matter how your market works out for you next year you should not experiment without a full financial analysis including sensitivity analysis to know the impact of your plans on balance sheet, income statement and cash flow. To do otherwise is foolish and irresponsible. Bite off what you can chew using the “soft” market scenario for starters and then move to a more aggressive mode once you feel the market will be stronger than planned or because the new program is working better than expected, with better than expected meaning additional cash flow. You are in a mature industry where good training, the right talent pool, adequate financing and technology will make you more productive and thus more competitive in your market. Not following this path to some extent can only lead to a less competitive entity and lower shareholder value. Might be a good idea to find out where you stand next to the competition. One very effective way to measure performance are the 20 groups I have mentioned in the past. If there ever was a time to join one of these groups it is now, but only if you will give it a 100% effort. You will be amazed at what can be gleaned from these meetings to improve your business. They are worth every penny. I would be glad to help set you up in a group. Call me to discuss. To close out this month here is a reminder to get and keep a handle on your tax situation and banking relationship. The tax landscape will be changing and with the new banking regulations you never know what they are thinking. Get a leg up on 2016 by reviewing steps to take market share. But do it right.

Raymond unveils new expansion at headquarters

Hyundai Forklift and Modern Group enter into dealer agreement

The Raymond Corporation hosted a National Manufacturing Day event at its headquarters in Greene, New York, unveiling a 47,000-square-foot addition to its facility and the reconfiguration of manufacturing space. The creation of the Raymond Operations Center accounted for 32,000 square feet of the addition. In this space, Raymond was able to add a second level for office space for operations and support, multiple collaborative team rooms and an employee fitness center. This allowed for the reconfiguration of 60,000 square feet on the manufacturing floor and optimization of the first floor support operations for improved efficiency and production capacity. An additional 15,000-square-foot expansion has been added to the west side of the building for new 60-foot test bay capabilities, office space, team rooms and break rooms. Raymond also implemented a number of upgrades to its manufacturing technology, installing advanced automatic welding and lasercutting technology, upgrading warehouse management software, and integrating the corporate logistics plan with just-in-time delivery of equipment and materials. www.raymondcorp.com

Hyundai Forklift announced the expansion of its geographic footprint and dealer base on the Eastern seaboard with the addition of Modern Group Ltd., headquartered in Bristol, Pa., as its newest authorized forklift dealer. With 70 years in business, the employee-owned Modern Group operates seven locations serving Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York City. “Distribution growth is essential for Hyundai, so we are extremely proud to welcome Modern Group – one of the largest and most respected equipment distributors in the industry – to our network,” said Chuck Leone, Vice President of Hyundai Forklift. “Our customers demand quality equipment and unmatched dealer support, and they’ll get that, and more, with this partnership.” “We are thrilled to partner with Hyundai Construction Equipment, a company which is a global leader and is positioned for future growth,” said Paul Farrell, CEO, Modern Group. “Their forklift and construction products are world class, and their commitment to quality is second to none.” www.hceamericas.com

Gregory Poole Equipment successfully completes acquisitions

Honeywell bar-code patent upheld by U.S. Patent and Trademark office

Gregory Poole Equipment Company announced that it has closed on its acquisition of the operations and assets of Dougherty Equipment Company, Inc. and VBS Inc. Material Handling Equipment and certain assets of Briggs Equipment, Inc. The acquisition process has uncovered significant economies of scale and synergies and is expected to nearly double the division’s annual revenue. Following this acquisition, Gregory Poole has been appointed as an authorized dealer of Hyster® and Yale® lift trucks across four states and one of the region’s largest overall material handling dealers. It is now the Yale® dealer in portions of North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia, and the Hyster® dealer in most of Virginia and in portions of North Carolina, South Carolina and West Virginia. While Gregory Poole will no longer represent other competitive supplier relationships, it will continue to support its current customers through existing service agreements. The acquisitions were driven by the company’s desire and directive to grow and by its strategic goal to be the recognized leader in the products it offers. NACCO Materials Handling Group (NMHG) helped to facilitate these transactions to address succession issues in several high-performing dealerships and to ensure continuity for customers, dealers and associates. The addition of Gregory Poole as a dealer, allows NMHG to expand its U.S. dual-brand distribution of its Hyster® and Yale® product lines. www.gregorypoole.com

In its final written decision, the United States Patent and Trademark Office recently upheld the validity of a patent from Honeywell on core technology used in bar-code imagery devices. In its ruling in the case of Fujian Newland Computer Co., Ltd. vs. Hand Held Products, Inc., the Patent Trial and Appeal Board determined that the petitioner failed to provide sufficient evidence to demonstrate that the Honeywell-owned patent was invalid. “This ruling is a significant victory that reinforces Honeywell’s drive to protect our scanning and mobility technological advancements,” said Jeremy Whitley, chief intellectual property counsel, Honeywell Sensing and Productivity Solutions. www.honeywellaidc.com

Toyota marks manufacturing milestone Toyota marked a manufacturing milestone with the production and sale of its five hundred thousandth forklift built at the company’s manufacturing facility, Toyota Industrial Equipment Mfg, Inc. (TIEM). To mark the occasion, Toyota Forklifts of Atlanta President Lee Smith presented the 500,000 forklift, an 8-Series model, to customer RockTenn, the second largest paper company in the world. “Toyota’s manufacturing achievement is the latest demonstration that we are responding to our customers’ need to deliver forklifts in North America with quality, technology, performance, fuel economy and value,” said Jeff Rufener, president of Toyota Material Handling, U.S.A., Inc. “We look forward to achieving our next production milestone thanks to the hard work and support of our world-class team of associates, dealers, suppliers and customers.” www.toyotaforklifts.com

Human Element Eric Baker, Caliper Corporation

How not to build your empire When we last saw music mogul Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard) at the end of Empire season one, he was clinging to the bars of a jail cell, charged with the murder of his trusted confidant and advisor Bunkie Williams. See, Lucious was mistakenly diagnosed with a terminal disease and believed he needed to square things away in a hurry. Apparently part of the succession plan for his music label, Empire Records, required him to shoot Bunkie in cold blood. So much for loyalty. Fast-forward to Empire season two: Thanks to some compromising photos of a judge, Lucious is now out of jail and back in the business of running Empire Records. And like any smart CEO, he knows how important it is to groom a successor so that Empire continues to thrive after he retires (or his luck runs out). Among his choices to assume the mantle of leadership are his three sons: Hakim, who wants the job but is brash and impulsive; Andre, who wants the job but is overly emotional and sensitive; and Jamal, who has the temperament but simply wants to record his own music. Naturally, Lucious hires an organizational-development consulting firm to commence a comprehensive successionplanning engagement that includes profiling team members’ personalities, performing a talent audit, designing individual developmental plans, and—

He doesn’t do any of that. It’s a TV show. Lucious schemes and manipulates and pits one son against another until all three have become bitter, paranoid wrecks, their relationships are destroyed, and the people they care about are left alienated and afraid. Complicating matters is the presence of ex-wife Cookie (Taraji P. Henson), the original brains and money behind Empire, who was long ago sent up the river to do hard time while Lucious became a millionaire. Now she’s out of the joint and is endeavoring to pit sons against father, take down Empire, and remake it her own way. I’m half-expecting J.R. Ewing to stroll onto the set one of these episodes and announce he’s flipping his Ewing Oil holdings to obtain Empire in a hostile takeover (R.I.P. Larry Hagman). Empire is one of TV’s most compelling melodramas, thanks largely to the machinations and manipulations of Lucious and Cookie as each tries to wrest control of the music label and secure its future. You’ve probably worked for and with people who were similarly addicted to drama and political scheming but who also did not realize that what’s good for TV is often bad for business. What’s good for business is coming up with a long-term, viable succession plan that includes a well-defined strategy, assessment

Your Business Eileen Schmidt

J.W. Speaker celebrates 80 years For 80 years, J.W. Speaker Corporation has had a presence in the Milwaukee area. Founded by John Speaker in July of 1935, the company got its start in radiator fronts, car mirrors, repair kits and automotive lighting. In the decades following that launch, the automotive market has undergone major transformation and J.W. Speaker has changed with the times while remaining a family-run business. “It’s exciting to think about how far the business has come,” said Tim Speaker, co-president of the company, in a statement on the business website released to mark the 80th anniversary. “J.W. Speaker has progressed from a small parts automotive manufacturer into a global manufacturer of cutting edge lighting technology,” he said. Today, J.W. Speaker specializes in LED and other emerging lighting technologies; designing manufacturing and assembling products out of its Germantown, Wisconsin location. J.W. Speaker serves the following markets: agricultural, automotive, commercial trucking, construction, industrial, marine, material handling, mining, off-road 4x4, power sports, railroad, specialty vehicles, truck and bus. The company is a supplier to well-known companies like Linde, Yale, Crown, Nissan and Toyota, to name a few, and also has a worldwide aftermarket business in original equipment manufacturer parts and consumer products. It is a growing segment of the business.

Remanufactured Transmissions, Engines, Torque Converters, Steer Axles, Overhaul Kits and Aftermarket Parts for: • Material Handling • Construction • Agricultural Equipment

J.W. Speaker’s global footprint was emphasized this fall when the company announced a new business arrangement with J. Fuehr, GmbH out of Hamburg, Germany. The announcement, released in late October, said J. Fuehr will serve as J.W. Speaker’s distribution partner and order fulfillment center for products sold into the European and Middle Eastern industrial aftermarkets. Tim Speaker said the new arrangement will “elevate the longstanding partnership” between the companies. “We’re excited about the prospects of jointly growing our business with J. Fuehr,” said Speaker, in the release. J. Fuehr, a distributor of material handling vehicle lighting, switches and accessories and a provider of systems for original equipment manufacturers and aftermarket customers, has previously represented J.W. Speaker with select manufacturers in the overseas material handling market. Now J. Fuehr will operate as an extension of J.W. Speaker; it will serve as a designated distribution partner for products sold to certain European and Middle Eastern manufacturers and a fulfillment center for American-based distributors who export industrial-related lighting products. J. Fuehr’s Alexander Fuehr said J.W. Speaker has been a reliable partner for the German company. “Their willingness to develop new, innovative products has helped us grow and differentiate ourselves from the competition. We are happy to further intensify this partnership and raise it to a new level,” said Fuehr, in the statement. J.W. Speaker’s history includes other moves to meet economic and market conditions. During World War II the company manufactured a miniature portable stove and can opener for use in the armed forces. By 1960, the shift was back to the automotive market. At that time, J.W. Speaker was under the leadership of John Speaker’s son, Jack. The company expanded into lighting for lawn and garden, and golf and turf tractors. In recent years as LED lighting has grown, J.W. Speaker has invested in that technology and the aftermarket. Now in its third generation of family leadership, those heading up J.W. Speaker say the company will remain flexible in efforts to grow and service customers. “We are committed to continually evolving to meet the needs of our customers, just as we’ve done for the past 80 years,” said Jamie Speaker, company co-president, in a statement. Eileen Schmidt is a freelance writer and journalist based in the Greater Milwaukee area. She has written for print and online publications for the past 12 years.

New Akro-Mils dolly for 30661 louvered floor rac

Clearpath announces shift into self-driving vehicles

Akro-Mils, a North American provider of storage, organization and transport products, announces the expansion of its industryleading line of Louvered Hanging Systems with the introduction of a new steel dolly for its popular 30661 SingleSided Louvered Rack. Available in Gray (30661DOLLYGY) and Beige (30661DOLLYBE) models, the new dolly was designed specifically for the 30661 single-sided rack in response to customer requests. By offering single-sided mobility for changing needs, end users are better assisted in replenishment/stocking, storage area cleaning and space maximization. The dolly comes with durable casters and floor locks for maneuverability and safety. The industry standard for customizable vertical storage systems for plastic hanging bins, Akro-Mils’ Louvered Hanging Systems securely support AkroBins®, InSight® Bins and Universal Hanging Bins. These systems are made of heavy-duty, 16-gauge, cold-rolled steel for strength and durability. www.akro-mils.com

Clearpath Robotics announced its first self-driving warehouse robot. OTTO is designed for intelligent heavy-load transport in industrial environments and delivers improved throughput and decreased operating costs. OTTO uses the same underlying self-driving technology popularized by the Google self-driving car. The system delivers dynamic and efficient transport in increasingly congested industrial operations. Traditional material handling systems require costly and rigid changes to infrastructure, cannot adapt to a changing environment, and are not safe for collaboration with warehouse personnel. OTTO does not rely on external infrastructure for navigation, making implementation hassle-free and highly scalable. It can transport 3300 lb loads at speeds up to 4.5 mph, while tracking along optimal paths and safely avoiding collisions. Applications for OTTO include moving pallets in a warehouse or cross-dock, and for kitting or assembly line delivery. OTTO units are currently deployed in five test facilities, the first of which belonging to GE. www.clearpathrobotics.com

New battery health monitor technology from Crown Crown Equipment Corporation is providing relief to the heartburn associated with managing a forklift fleet powered by lead-acid batteries. Battery Health Monitor redefines battery management by combining with Crown’s InfoLinkŽ wireless fleet and operator management system to create an integrated system that ties forklift, operator and battery data all under one program. Installed on the battery, the Battery Health Monitor connects battery, forklift and operator by monitoring real-time data on battery activity. It captures battery performance during operation for each battery individually, which enables operators and managers to make timely and more proactive decisions as opposed to reactive decisions when the battery begins to fail. It positions forklift owners to manage batteries as assets, while driving operator accountability and improved battery troubleshooting that will enable better battery management practices. www.crown.com

New Fontaine Armor™ Yard Truck Fifth Wheel Fontaine Coupling Solutions introduces Armor™, the first fifth wheel designed from the ground up specifically for yard trucks. The Armor fifth wheel is stronger, easier to maintain and better protected from kingpin damage than other terminal tractor fifth wheels, providing increased uptime and lower total cost of ownership. It can be ordered on new trucks or fitted to existing competitor brackets in the aftermarket. “Fontaine Coupling Solutions personnel spent more than three years thoroughly studying the yard truck fifth wheel market, talking to more than 100 customers about how they use fifth wheels across warehouse distribution, industrial, port and rail applications,” explains Robbie Laney, Fontaine Coupling Solutions director of sales and leader of the market study team. “We learned that terminal tractor or ‘yard truck’ fifth wheels may be coupled and uncoupled up to 300 times a day vs. just once for most over-the-road trucks. In port applications, they load containers weighing tens of thousands of pounds on them daily. These extreme operating conditions lead to high maintenance costs as customers have to frequently rebuild and replace fifth wheels that were not specifically designed to handle these tough applications. www.couplingsolutions.com
