Seegrid executives have found that Warehouse and Distribution Centers currently using forklifts, are tired of facility and product damage as well as safety concerns and injuries. Too often there are high maintenance costs and downtime and productivity issues due to forklift operators. Seegrid is a key sponsor and exhibitor at the WERC Conference.
