What’s the fastest, most efficient way to transport just about any kind of materials?
You guessed it: belt conveyors.
Depending on the type of business you have, a belt conveyor might make a lot of sense to you. As you can imagine, lifting or transporting materials by hand can be difficult, not to mention dangerous. Instead of risking harm to your materials and your body, consider delegating transport duties to a machine that often needs little to no supervision. Besides being much more safe, belt conveyors are extremely flexible, meaning they can be used in pretty much any industry, and can conform to fit your work space. Automotive, manufacturing, packaging, warehouses – you name it, a belt conveyor can help.
Another advantage: the materials you are transporting don’t have to be particular dimensions. It can transport objects of any size and any shape, more quickly than other machines. Best of all: they require very little supervision, depending on which one you choose.
If you want a versatile, easy-to-maintain machine that makes transporting goods a breeze, look no further than a belt conveyor to get the job done. Yankee Supply has a variety of conveyors in stock, so you can choose the right one for your business.

Sometimes it’s not about which tools you have, but how you utilize them. We at Yankee Supply have added a new product to our inventory: the Bag Cart Forklift Attachment. With this attachment to your forklift, you will be able to directly clamp bag carts, mail carts, cargo carts, and ULD dollies using a lockable C-clamp that securely grasps whatever you may be lifting. Furthermore, this attachment provides a secure hold on all cargo, and prevents the blades from touching the cargo. As a result, there’ll be a significant decrease in damaged cargo, as your blades won’t be gouging into the cargo.
The Bag Cart Forklift Attachment is a cost-efficient way to improve productivity and prevent damage to inventory. Yankee Supply is always looking for new ways to help our customers improve productivity, and this is our latest addition to do just that. Work smarter, not harder with Yankee Supply!

Like a carpenter, we storage aficionados have an array of tools.
Arguably one of the more important tools is lift equipment…forklifts.
A good forklift is not only essential for your daily operations, but also for your financial health. The liabilities in forklift operation are enormous and can be very costly if something goes wrong. That’s why it’s always important to maintain, service and inspect your lift equipment, so your bases are covered.
Having an up-to-date, capable forklift ensures the safety of your employees, and also takes the guesswork out of the equation. You won’t have to wonder if the hydraulics are capable of the job, you won’t have to worry if it can handle the loads it’s carrying. There’s a sense of peace of mind with upgraded equipment.
If you’ve done these steps, but you’ve completely used up the operating life of your forklift, Yankee Supply has an ever-changing inventory that can replace your forklift for a healthy discount. We have many used stackers, forklifts, and other lifting equipment, and if we don’t have something to your liking in our inventory, we have the connections and ability to get you exactly what you need!

Fast-paced warehouses and storage facilities need fast-paced equipment.
A Drive-In racking system can drastically improve the speed at which you turn over inventory. Drive-In racking systems use the LIFO method (Last In First Out) because there is only one entrance. The inventory at the back of the shelving unit can only be accessed if everything in front of it has been removed. These racking systems are suitable for products with no expiration date and no shelf life concern. Drive-In shelving makes it easy for forklift operators to unload from the loading dock and right into your storage units.
To improve efficiency and make the workplace safer, Drive-In racking systems are a great addition to any storage facility.
If shelf life is a concern, fear not, there’s an alternative to Drive-In racking systems. If you need access to the complete shelving unit, and all the respective products on the shelves, then a Drive-Thru storage system would make much more sense for your business. Drive-Thru storage systems use the FIFO method, first in first out, and have two points of entry to allow ease of access to all the units. Like the Drive-In racking system, the Drive-Thru system allows for efficient unloading and loading but is easier to access. That being said, Drive-Thru storage systems need a clear path of entry on both sides. This means you cannot put this unit against the wall, which of course means more square-footage being eaten up.
