Powered Pallet Truck (PPT Training) & Low Level Order Picker (LLOP)
The Powered Pallet Truck (often referred to as PPT) is a well-known basic warehouse truck, and most organisations use this kind of MHE machinery. These vehicles play an important part in providing low cost pallet movement, designed to handle goods at ground level. PPTs assist in marshalling pallets, assembling orders, loading and unloading vehicles and a host of other important tasks.
PPTs are one of the simplest lift trucks available out there and very easy to operate. The same principles as a hand pump truck are applied to PPT when operating it, the only difference is when the forks enter the pallet it can be electrically lifted off the ground. The main advantage is that it helps with manual handling and prevent injuries. PPT trucks are best suited when they are driven indoors with smooth ground condition.
Despite its seemingly simple and effective handling, the proper training is vital to operating powered pallet trucks, due to there being are much higher risk with lower limb injuries.
A Low Level Order Picker (often shortened to LLOP) is driven as a rider operated pallet truck but the operator is lifted in the cab to access low level racking for order picking.
