    Beverage industry provides electric Jacks to guys that have to push/pull one ton or more pallets; why doesn't ltl?

    Our guys on the dock are still using manual pallet jacks to move freight. We only have a limited number of forklifts. We don't have enough hand trucks and pallet jacks to go around for drivers either.

    I'm surprised no one has called the corp office about that. In my area no pallet jack = returns

    i think LTL drivers are tougher than beverage drivers. Don't need electric pallet jack.

    you might not, but I do. Has nothing to do with toughness and everything to do with intelligence. Why risk an injury jerking 2-3k lbs pallets that are falling apart when you can use an electric jack? You must not be familiar with sefl business practices. You get injured and the company gives 6 mos and 1 day to return

    Especially the residential deliveries we're doing so many of now thanks to e-commerce. Some of these are absurd how they expect us to unload a 2,000 lb skid on a lift gate and a residential street with a slight incline.
