Caterpillar values safety, quality and ergonomics

- and optimizes the efficiency of their workflow

Prioritizing ergonomics and safety for a better working environment

The world's largest construction-equipment manufacturer, Caterpillar, has a great focus on safety and ergonomics. The Caterpillar distribution center in Belgium is distributing parts for Caterpillar trucks worldwide. Everyday, pallets with cardboard boxes filled with small parts are loaded and unloaded at the distribution center.

The Caterpillar management wanted this procedure to be done in a rational and non-straining way. They had specific high requirements to safety, quality and ergonomics, and it was decisive to them that the solution met these high requirements. To obtain better ergonomics and safety in the production line, the boxes filled with components needed to be elevated and some of them rotated to an ergonomically correct working height and position. For this purpose, Caterpillar was equipped with electric highlifters and Rotators to provide ergonomic correct working positions for their employees.


"When choosing the products, the functionality, safety and quality played a decisive role. Furthermore, we focus on the supplier demonstration of the product and the product fulfilling European/American quality and safety standards. That is why we chose the electric highlifter and Rotator from Logitrans"

Caterpillar has a great focus on safety, efficiency and working environment and by lifting the goods from the ground these parameters are optimized. Among with fewer sick days and better working environment, focusing on ergonomics also provide happier employees.
