Amazon has ordered a fleet of six Flexi Truck articulated forklift trucks for its DXB3 fulfilment centre in Dubai Logistics City, UAE.
E-commerce giant Amazon launched the facility in the UAE in May 2019, covers more than 351979ft2, and is stocked with more than 4 million products. The DXB3 site is Amazon’s largest fulfilment centre facility in the country with an excess of 650 employees.
The new Flexi Trucks feature digital electric motor technology which allows independent twin front-wheel drive, hydraulic functions, and the truck’s unique power-steering motor to be controlled digitally – ensuring the most productive, energy-efficient, and safe driving performance throughout the working day.
“To achieve optimum online order fulfilment performance it is important to deploy the most suitable materials handling equipment and the Flexi Truck articulated forklift-based intralogistics solution delivers hugely improved productivity and increased safety for warehouse staff as they carry out a range of customer order picking duties at lower levels and at the same time Flexis can stack and replenish in complete safety at height within warehouse aisles,” said John Maguire, Managing Director of Flexi Narrow Aisle.
