A Very Narrow Aisle (VNA) truck is a specialised forklift designed to operate in extremely narrow warehouse aisles, maximizing storage space while efficiently handling goods. VNA trucks are engineered for high-density storage and are ideal for facilities with limited aisle width.
The key feature of a VNA truck is its ability to operate in aisles as narrow as 1.6 meters (around 5 feet) wide. These trucks typically have either a man-up or man-down design, which refers to the operator’s position during operation. VNA trucks are electrically powered and often equipped with wire or rail guidance systems for precise navigation within the narrow aisles. They are commonly used for tasks like order picking and stacking pallets in tall storage racks, allowing for increased storage capacity and optimized warehouse organization.
