As businesses ramp back up following coronavirus shutdowns, ensuring safe operation and transport is more essential than ever. In order to keep the supply chain functioning, managers and executives need an easy solution to review work processes and complete safety audits.

When choosing an electric personnel carrier, carefully answer these questions to best identify your needs.
How big is your facility?
Depending on the size of your working area, different electric carriers may offer greater range. From a full charge, most carriers can reach up to 40 miles of range. However, variables such as load size, speed, and other factors can affect this range. If you need to drive further on a single charge, consider upgrading to a lithium ion battery solution to extend the life between charging cycles.
How many passengers do you need to carry?

Whether you need a carrier for executive transport, a single-passenger vehicle for manager inspections, or something for larger groups, Taylor-Dunn probably has a solution for you.
