Work Zone adds to the Smart Connected Lift Trucks solution.
Konecranes has launched Work Zone, a new addition to its Smart Connected Lift Trucks solution.

Work Zone is a suite of location-based services designed to improve the safety of forklift operations, especially in busy, high-traffic environments.  

As a part of Work Zone, Konecranes has introduced geofencing, a new safety and yard efficiency product which uses GPS technology to create virtual fences around real-world areas. These areas can be used to trigger user-defined alerts including height limitations, speed limits or other safety matters. The alerts can be displayed on the driver's display or by SMS or email to chosen recipients.

In addition to helping to increase safety, Work Zone can also be used to reduce and monitor downtime. This user-friendly tool offers the user the possibility to manage a fleet of lift trucks on a computer. This management and operations integration opens brand new possibilities to monitor and control a Konecranes fleet of forklifts.

Konecranes Work Zone is available for all customers using Smart Connected Lift Trucks.
