Keep Your Logistics Operation Sailing Smoothly with Axis Tyres

Logistics and Transport is a rapidly paced, deadline driven industry. Products are being tracked, counted, collected, delivered, driven, flown and shipped. Organisation and processes are vital, and the last thing you need on site is a problem with your forklifts and the resulting unexpected down time.

For this reason, it is imperative that you choose the right trucks and the best forklift tyres for logistics applications.

The forklift types most commonly used in logistics are:

Three wheel forklift truck

Three Wheel Counterbalance Forklift Trucks

When more flexibility in forklift movement is required, three-wheel counterbalance forklift trucks are a smarter option.

These have the stability of regular forklift trucks but with easier steering and handling for smaller spaces.

Battery electric forklift truck

Counterbalance Forklift Trucks

Counterbalance forklifts are good all-rounder trucks for logistics companies.

They are simple to use, and their minimal design features allow direct access to racks or loads.

High reach forklift truck

Reach Trucks

Reach trucks are suited to indoor logistics operations and are invaluable for their ability to lift loads to heights of 10 metres or more.

Their legs offer enough stability to make a counterbalance weight unnecessary.

Powred pallet trucks

Powered Pallet Trucks

Powered pallet trucks work with the aid of an electric motor and are used to move larger loads.

These forklifts are controlled by the operator to move forward or into reverse or to raise or lower their forks.

The best forklift tyres for logistics

Cushion forklift tyres

Cushion forklift tyres for logistics

Cushion forklift tyres are ideal for indoor logistics operations because they are a kind of press-on tyre designed for smooth surfaces.

They offer a lower impact and cushioning for better worker safety and are highly suited to small spaces as their turning radius is smaller than other tyres.

Pneumatic forklift tyres

Pneumatic forklift tyres for logistics

Pneumatic forklift tyres are a tougher, more heavy duty tyre, which improves comfort, stability and safety.

They are filled with air and have a deep tread of durable rubber.

These tyres are perfect for uneven, rough or outdoors applications.

Solid forklift tyres

Solid forklift tyres for logistics

These tyres are similar in construction to pneumatics, but as they are not filled with air, they do not cushion the vehicle from impact.

They are puncture resistant, unlikely to go flat and last for a longer amount of time.

These tyres are for both indoor and light outdoor purposes, but not for use on rough or uneven surfaces.

Non-marking forklift tyres

Non-marking tyres for logistics

Logistics companies that work with groceries or food are legally required to use non-marking tyres to avoid black marks on flooring.

As the carbon in these tyres deteriorates over time, they have a shorter overall lifespan.
