Moving heavy roll cages and trolleys by hand
With beverage manufacturers looking to maximise throughput, material handling processes and equipment need to support increasing production efficiency. With high volumes of products comes the need for frequent movement.
While a significant amount of product is palletised and moved with lifting equipment, wheeled loads such as roll cages and trolleys of drink crates are often moved by hand.
Relying on manual handling to facilitate intralogistics lower productivity and results in the risk of injury.
Improving productivity with effective material handling in the beverage industry
Electric tugs enable a single operator to safely move heavy loads such as trolleys, raw materials, cleaning and production equipment within filling and bottling plants.
Eliminating the need for manual handling and making safe movements a one-person task, electric tugs increase operational efficiency and staff productivity.
The benefits of electric tugs for the beverage industry
Whether it’s eliminating manual handling in beverage filling plants to maximise throughput or ensuring the safe movement of equipment in distilleries, electric tugs help the beverage industry increase efficiency and improve workplace safety.
Optimise throughput and efficiency
With no operator license required and moveable by their very nature, electric tugs help maximise throughput and operational efficiency.
With a single operator able to move the heaviest of loads, electric tugs allow staff to focus on more productive activities.
Whether it’s reducing the risk of injury from manual handling or ensuring the safe movement of loads in potentially explosive environments in distilleries, electric tugs maximise workplace safety.

Your Questions, Answered - FAQs
Helping the beverage industry improve safety and boost labour productivity, electric tugs are used within filling plants, retail distribution and even distilleries.
No, unlike traditional lifting equipment such as pallet trucks and forklifts, electric tugs do not lift loads off the ground. Electric tugs are designed to move wheeled loads, delivering the safe, efficient and flexible movement of loads.
Ideally suited to working within the beverage industry, electric tugs can be used to complement and enhance existing material handling processes, working alongside lifting equipment to support efficient and safe intralogistics.
No, electric tugs do not require a license to operate. A license-free operation makes electric tugs an attractive option for food manufacturers looking to streamline the movement of loads and improve safety.
Minimal training is required to safely operate an electric tug and we offer training packages to suit every requirement.
Electric tugs are battery powered, with interchangeable batteries or lithium options available, electric tugs can deliver 24/7 operation to keep your processes moving.
Offering zero emissions from the point of use, electric tugs are ideally suited for indoor use.
A range of coupling options are available across the range that maximise performance, security and safety.
Custom coupling solutions can also be designed for unique applications.
