Many food service refrigerated fleet customers understand how difficult it can be to reduce the open door time, the amount of times a driver must enter or work inside.
The most crucial time event is the trip back to the vehicle, before departure. The last trip to the vehicle is the longest peroid of time because drivers check-in their delivery,
often help stock coolers, rotate inventory, sign bills and wait for payments. During this 10-15 minute time period, most delivery truck reefer units will recover operating
temperature and shut-off. The driver then approaches the freezer or refrigerated truck body, opens the rear or side door, the door seals often create a vacuum and cold
air drops outward. The driver loads the sun warmed or building heated hand truck back into the cargo area, closes the door, forcing warm air into the recovered freezer.
When the ambient is above 76° degrees, this prematurely activates the thermostats to recover cargo temperature for 5-8 minutes. Five minutes of reefer time X 20 stops
per day equals 100 minutes or over 1.5 hours of reefer run time per day. Most truck refrigeration systems use about one gallon of fuel per hour. This translates to a fuel
savings of $5-6 dollars per day, $25-30 dollars per week or $100 per month! The HTS also reduces physical effort, injuries, hand truck reload trime. route time and labor!
Our HTS Systems delivery vehicle equipment can quickly pay for itself in only 6-8 months and save food service delivery fleets thousands of dollars annually!!

HTS-20SF350 tow hitch receiver swing mount is designed for the rear of commercial pickup trucks using refrigerated truck bodies. Designed for the rear of refrigerated
food service delivery vehicles, this new HTS application saves cargo temperature, route time, valuable cargo space, prevents worker injuries, product damage and
bacterial cross-contamination. The new HTS-20SF350 unit reduces reefer recovery run time, physical effort, thereby saving thousands in fuel and labor costs annually!
The HTS Ultra-Rack saves a route driver a minute or more per delivery stop, that's about 2.5 hours per week!
For one delivery vehicle over a 4 year time period = $4,800 dollars in labor + $400 in fuel savings + $300 in hand truck replacements = $5,500 dollars!
It's simple; save a minute per stop X 30 stops per day = 600 mins. per month or 120 hours per year X $10 per hour = $1,200 dollars in annual savings!
Include additional payload cargo area, less freight claims damage, less driver injuries, reduced DOT fines, reduced liability and insurance costs = $2,000
every 4 years! Add it up, $5,500 dollars + $2,000 = $7,500 dollars per delivery vehicle over a 4 year time period! Save approximately $1,875 dollars
every year, per delivery vehicle! Prevent a workmen's compensation injury claim or an expensive liability lawsuit and well... you get the point!
Industry Overview Summary: Workmen's Compensation ▪ Ergonomics ▪ Cross-contamination ▪ Corporate Liability ▪ Insurance Costs ▪ Risk Management
The average cost for an MRI scan is $1,500 dollars, the average Workmen's Compensation claim is $15,000 dollars and the average legal liability lawsuit
settlement for businesses is $150,000 dollars! The HTS completely revolutionizes route safety and worker productivity, while reducing corporate risk!
Reducing physical climbing, lifting and lowering can reduce back injuries, tripping and falls; thereby decreasing risk, worker injuries and insurance costs!
Any driver who rushes back (off-route) in a hurry to retrieve their forgotten hand truck is no longer a safe driver, they instantly become a liability!
Unsanitary and deplorable events often occur in alleys, service entrances and parking lots of night clubs and restaurants in the early morning hours.
Hand trucks travel across filthy sidewalks, through mud puddles, near leaking dumpsters, public rest rooms, dirty coolers and oily loading dock areas.
Manually lifting hand trucks aboard food service delivery vehicles increases the likelihood of transferring hazardous ground source bacteria from tires,
onto work uniforms and hands, onto food cartons. This cross-contamination increases the possibility of salmonella, E. coli and Listeria bacteria illness!
Cross-contamination of bacteria, chemicals and dirt onto food products and sanitary medical supplies can be reduced when transporting hand trucks
out and away from products. Hand trucks often transfer contaminates into food refrigeration vehicles or track out chemicals or spread disease from
hazardous shipments. The HTS reduces hand truck tires and load plate surfaces from retransferring contaminates to customer locations and products.
Reduce fuel consumption for refrigeration-freezer units by retaining temperature in food service trucks; reduce total entries and open-door time!
Prevent warm hand trucks from acting as a heating element, prevent temperature loss, thermostat activation, saving reefer fuel in warmer climates!
HOLD THE COLD! FUEL SAVINGS $$$ WHEN NOT TRANSPORTING A HAND TRUCK WITHIN REFRIGERATED TRUCK BODIES
It’s nearly impossible to control the length of time or the number of times a refrigeration cargo door is opened during a delivery stop. Many refrigerated truck bodies have shut-off switches that
prevent the reefer unit from running while the cargo door remains open. This option can save energy and can lower fuel costs; however it does not prevent expensive temperature loss. Often the
final return trip back to the truck can be the most important when trying to retain cargo temperature! After the driver gets his delivery checked in, rotates and stocks their customer order, signs
bill and receives payment. This time can average 10-15 minutes; ample time for most thermostat controls to recover their safe operating temperature and properly shut down. The driver then exits
the building and must reload their hand truck aboard the vehicle. Opening the freezer door pulls the cold air outward and closing the door pushes the warmer air inward. This action results in major
internal temperature loss! Refrigeration companies informed us that if the ambient temperature is 75-80° degrees or above, this would cause the reefer system thermostat to recover for
approximately 5-8 minutes. Eliminating a 5-8 minute cycle time X 20 stops per day can save a minimum of 100 minutes of reefer time per day. Refrigeration manufacturers informed us that most
refrigerated systems use a gallon of diesel fuel per hour. Preventing a fuel loss of 1.5 gallons per day X $4.25 per gallon can generate a savings of $6 dollars per day, $30 dollars per week or
$120 per month, per delivery vehicle! Access and navigate the narrow aisle of freezers much safer, faster and easier when grabbing small orders. Save time, no moving or climbing over hand truck.
Refrigerated truck body manufacturers using thermo cameras have discovered that metal hand trucks heat up quickly in warm weather and act as a heating element, triggering thermostat controls!
What other investment could you possibly make in your company and truck fleet that will give you that large of a return and that type of protection?
The Hand Truck Sentry is a hand truck safety rack, hand cart carrier, dolly cart rack or hand truck lock rack; whatever you call it, it's so much more!!
The Hand Truck Sentry is the only material handling equipment and truck accessory that reduces route time, labor costs, climbing, injuries, workmen's
compensation, product damage, freight claims, vehicle wear and liability. The only delivery tool that saves fuel, cargo space, hand trucks and money!
The HTS is a hand truck safety rack that's safer, faster, easier; a one-handed method and patented solution that pays for itself over and over again!
The ancient hand truck carrier racks of the past eventually fail and it usually occurs when the delivery truck is traveling. Often these types of failures
result in catastrophic highway accidents, severe injuries and costly lawsuits and legal settlements. http://www.handtrucksystems.com/press.htm

We can't stress enough; that if you're using rubber straps, bungee cords, cables, chains or any type of flexible tie-down method to secure your hand trucks aboard the
exterior of your delivery trucks; PLEASE STOP IMMEDIATELY! We have seen the highway accidents, the property damage and the physical injuries. Your own insurance
company can also verify and document our findings. It takes more time and it involves more lifting, reaching and climbing, if you don't have an HTS Ultra-Rack. If you don't,
by all means, safely secure your hand truck within the cargo area. (as required by DOT safety regulations) Safety & Ergonomics in the Delivery Vehicle, an
internet web site, public statement from Magline, Inc. manufacturer of Magliner hand trucks. "To avoid accidents and prevent damage to your hand truck, always make
sure to fasten it securely inside your vehicle with a strap or other device." If you're storing the hand truck inside the vehicle, we couldn't agree more! It's a safety hazard
and a DOT safety violation if you don't comply. Your driver could be cited and fined for not securing their hand truck! Many delivery companies are unaware of these vital
Department of Transportation (inside storage) safety requirements. It's true the exterior of the delivery vehicle is a superior location, a more ergonomic method for storing
and transporting your hand truck; if you do it safely! Make it a safer place out there for everyone, by ordering your new Hand Truck Sentry System today!

"I like it... because it's just faster and easier!"
Joe VOITEK - Route Driver - United Beverage Company OF NORTHEASTERN PENNSYLVANIA - July 2006
Every month large companies will spend millions of dollars marketing their products, advertising and protecting their brand's positioning, identity and reputation. Just one accident resulting in a
serious injury or death caused by negligence can damage the reputation and inadvertently change the confidence and opinion of the buyer towards the brand's name. This consumer perception may
take years to overcome, even if the company is later found not negligent or liable for a highway accident! Adverse media exposure that focuses on a brand name vehicle can have dire consequences.
When we visit with our HTS customers and their route drivers we discovered that most beverage distributors and food service employees are very protective as they proudly express their loyalty
and the quality of their company's products and brands. Companies have long known that employee professionalism, attitude and appearance are extremely important to protect the brand's image.
Providing new technology or equipment that allows route drivers to accomplish their tasks safer, faster and easier reduces daily stress and dramatically improves a driver's confidence and attitude.
The Hand Truck Sentry System HTS Ultra-Rack is a quick lock, safe transport tool that completely revolutionizes the loading, unloading and storage tasks of delivery drivers using hand trucks!

Fact: On average, it takes approximately 0.5 to 1.5 (½ - 1½) minutes to unload and reload a hand truck aboard a commercial route truck, depending on the truck body type,
door locks, deck height, securing method, cargo space, driver fitness and the hand truck weight and model. Unlocking padlocks, unlocking and reopening doors,
physical lifting and climbing and moving cargo to access is valuable time! Upon completing the delivery; the driver will loose additional time to reopen the cargo area
to safely store hand truck aboard the vehicle. Many drivers toss their hand trucks on top of fragile products causing claims damage. When drivers must back track off
route to retrieve a forgotten hand truck it usually takes about 20-30 minutes round trip. Hand truck retrievals can cost delivery companies thousands in fuel and labor!
The average route driver will forget their hand truck 4-6 times per year. Most supervisors only hear about it once or twice, or when the hand truck is lost or stolen!
Unloading and reloading the hand truck aboard vehicles with a hasp bar or a rubber strap hand truck carrier frame requires additional time and the use of both hands.
When a driver works off the back of the truck and also docks to warehouse doors it is very common for him to remove the hand truck from vehicle to the loading dock
area so that a pallet jack or forklift can enter. Often times the driver forgets to reload the hand truck aboard the cargo area before departure, leaving it miles behind!
Opening a refrigerated truck body to reload hand trucks will draw cold air outward, closing the door forces warm air inward; causing unnecessary thermostat restarts.
Fact: Unload and reload your hand truck in just 6-8 seconds when using the HTS Ultra-Rack on any model of route delivery vehicle! It takes only 3-4 seconds to access your
hand truck and 3-4 seconds to safely store the hand truck aboard the route vehicle using one hand! Saving a driver a minute or more during each delivery stop X 30
stops per day = equals a labor cost savings of 2.5 hours per week! Also... your drivers will never forget their hand trucks, waste valuable time, labor or expensive fuel
when using the HTS Ultra-Rack! That's how the HTS Ultra-Rack is able to pay for itself in less time than most route delivery vehicles can wear out a new set of tires!
Save thousands by retaining expensive cargo temperature when not reloading hand trucks aboard refrigerated bodies. Prevent recovered reefer units from restarting!

The HTS Tilt Mount Ultra-Rack Hand Truck Sentry System offers many advantages over the older out-dated factory OEM hasp-bar and unsafe rubber strap carrier racks.
The Hand Truck Sentry System eliminates the possibility of the driver leaving the hand truck miles behind; saving route time and fuel. The front OEM hasp-bar racks are
not designed to accommodate hand truck models equipped with stair climbers or a nose plate extension. OEM hand truck racks allow hand trucks to tilt and lean outward
and shift during vehicle movement. The Hand Truck Sentry System does not require padlocks to prevent theft or bungee cords to prevent leaning, vibration or movement.
OEM and Aftermarket hand truck racks require two hands to off-load and reload the hand truck. You need only one hand to operate the HTS Ultra-Rack Hand Truck Sentry!
Having an extra free hand to hold your paperwork or to allow the driver to firmly brace himself on slippery, ice or snow covered ground surfaces is extremely beneficial.

We are confident that we have a safety and ergonomic enhancement that can reduce the amount of times the vehicle vault is opened by 45% percent! Reduce the vault
access by hundreds of times per week and also decrease the standard delivery (open-door) time, by hours per week; thereby increasing the armored personnel safety,
the vault security, the route productivity; while reducing risk and company liability. We have observed many guards leaning and reaching with their torso inside the vehicle.
The guard’s visibility momentarily obstructed, their back facing towards crowded sidewalks and parking lots, while focusing on lifting and handling their hand truck.
The hand truck tires and load plate often transfer dirt, mud and snow into the cargo area, causing currency bags and valuable items to become wet or dirty.
We have also been informed by armored guards who had injured themselves because they slipped on wet floors within the vehicle and fell onto their hand trucks.
We are very confident that our HTS-10T units can increase armored personnel safety, vehicle vault security, route productivity, fuel economy and save armored car
companies thousands of dollars per vehicle!

The HTS-20S Swing Mount Ultra-Rack - Hand Truck Sentry System saves 12'-15' cubic feet of cargo space every day or 240 -300 cubic feet per month and reduces delivery time and damages!
In the commercial van market for companies that deliver parcels, documents, paper and janitorial products, food vending and medical supplies there are no ideal methods to safely transport a hand
truck, without tossing it into the vehicle. Current methods take-up valuable cargo space and decrease payload storage, damage product and require greater physical effort to stow the hand truck.
Parcel drivers constantly handle and shuffle their hand trucks within the van to gain access and to reach their cargo shelves and packages. A standard aluminum commercial hand truck transported
inside the delivery van will use up approximately 12' -15' cubic feet of valuable cargo space. When a hand truck is transported inside a delivery van 5 days a week it translates to a payload loss of
240-300 cubic feet per month. Most parcel drivers move their hand truck out of their way continuously, actually handling it more than they use it for customer deliveries! It is dangerous and a DOT
safety violation to transport a loose hand truck within the cab or cargo area, all equipment must be secured. The HTS Ultra-Rack is the most advanced hand truck securement system for commercial
delivery vehicles in transit. The HTS-20S Swing Mount unit is designed for the rear of most delivery vans. The HTS-20S Swing Mount can solve nearly every issue associated with smaller delivery
vans that transport hand trucks, saving our customers time, fuel, cargo space and profits! Maximize your cargo capacity and route productivity, reduce freight damage and prevent floor corrosion.

Prevent your drivers from leaving without their hand trucks, confirm a secured attachment before departure, eliminate hand truck retrieval time, reduce fuel loss
and labor costs. To sum up, you can stop the unnecessary shuffling and handling of your hand truck within the vehicle. Presently, your drivers are
moving their hand truck more than they're using it! A standard commercial hand truck stored inside a delivery van will use up approximately 12-15 cubic feet of
valuable cargo space. Transporting a hand truck inside a delivery van 5 days a week is a payload loss of 240-300 cubic feet per month! Loose hand trucks
that bounce or get thrown within the cargo area can often puncture or break open food or medical containers. The HTS also eliminates cargo-to-container contamination
caused by hand trucks and reduces parcel damage and freight claims. The HTS Ultra-Rack was designed to deliver! The HTS pays for itself in 8-10 months, then
saves thousands in operation costs! If you're looking for additional fuel and time savings, improved cargo and safety methods to prevent accidents; you've found it!
