Toyota Material Handling has introduced a new pre-operational check facility to its Toyota I_Site Fleet management solution in a bid to improve safety and efficiency.

The Toyota I_Site is an intelligent fleet management solution designed to help customers improve their material handling operation, through combining technology with information collected directly from the material handling fleet in addition to offering specialist advice.

The unique pre-operational check function is based on a digital checklist that can be centrally managed by the customer.  The device is easily installed on the truck and confirms that trucks are in an appropriate working condition before the truck can be started.  For increased safety, if a critical failure is identified during the operators check, the truck is automatically immobilised or an alarm is activated.

Toyota I_Site helps customers to monitor truck performance, damage costs and battery status, in addition to authorising correctly trained operators to use specific machines amongst other features.  By working in partnership with Toyota specialists and using this information, Toyota I_Site can help customers to drive down costs, increase productivity and improve the safety of their operation.

In line with Toyota’s philosophy of Kaizen (Continuous Improvement) Toyota is also introducing an updated version of their Toyota I_Site web portal that provides customers with critical real-time information about their forklift fleet.

The enhanced web portal system aims to provide customers with increased functionality and is simple to use.  The user-friendly dashboard can be customised to a user’s personal preference, enabling them to see an instant overview of indicators that are important to their operation.
