Impact of COVID-19 on Pallet Truck Sales

COVID-19 has resulted in unimaginable human suffering, including death and disease, as well as unprecedented economic effects. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, several pallet truck manufacturers either suspended or drastically reduced their production capacity in 2020.

Because governments in several countries applied tight lockdown measures, corporations in the automotive, manufacturing, logistics, and materials handling industries, among others, shut down their factories.

Pallet trucks have been in short supply as a result of these issues. Border restrictions and traffic problems also caused supply chain problems.

However, the industry projects a high level of demand and supply beyond the pandemic, owing to increased urbanization and the growing need for efficient use of available space.

Manufacturing companies are implementing automation to boost their production capacity, and therefore, pallet truck demand is expected to grow substantially over the coming years.

Competitive Landscape

Manufacturers are developing pallet trucks incorporated with additional features, making them safer and interactive to use along with other features such as comfort and digitalization.

For instance,

  • In May 2019, the Raymond Courier 3030 stacker introduced by Raymond Corporation uses autonomous guided vehicle technology to lift and store pallets.
