Nucor has deployed telematics across all forklift equipment
PowerFleet has been selected by Nucor Tubular Products to improve safety, compliance and utilisation by using PowerFleet's telematics solutions.
Nucor has employed PowerFleet to enhance the safety of all warehousing operations at its facilities. After a rigorous pilot program, Nucor deployed the PowerFleet Enterprise telematics solution across all forklift equipment and instrument cranes at a second location in late last year and the remaining six of its tubular products facilities will be updated during the first half of 2021.
PowerFleet claims it sets the industry safety standard through its telematics solutions, which improve materials handling productivity, reduce costs and ensure equipment is in the proper place at the right time. Its products also provide improved safety while maintaining strict compliance and reducing slowdown friction lost in manual check-ins.
In addition to the PowerFleet Enterprise solution, Nucor Tubular Products will also deploy PowerFleet Forewarner MAXI Crane Safety lights and CP4 Forklift Camera solutions to increase visibility and safety and to guarantee accurate records of equipment use in real time.
"Steel manufacturing by nature has incredibly unique and extensive requirements to ensure that we have enhanced safety protocols and procedures available for our team. After assessing solutions on the market, Nucor Tubular Products has made the decision to partner with PowerFleet," explains Nathan Fraser, Nucor vice president and general manager.
"To help meet our mission of becoming the world's safest steel company, we've brought on a technology partner at the edge of innovation and performance to further ensure the safety of all our Nucor Tubular Products teammates.
"PowerFleet's ability to automatically send critical safety and equipment information into our Business Management System will allow us to be more responsive, efficient, and, ultimately, safer as a team," he adds.
PowerFleet supplies subscription-based wireless IoT and M2M solutions for securing, controlling, tracking, and managing high-value enterprise assets such as industrial trucks, tractor trailers, containers, cargo, and vehicles and truck fleets.
