methods to safely transport a hand

decrease payload storage, damage product and require greater physical effort
to stow the hand truck.
drivers constantly handle and shuffle their hand trucks within the van to
gain access and to reach their cargo shelves and packages.
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

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

transport a loose hand truck within the cab or cargo area, all equipment must
