Compared to other solutions, overhead bridge cranes offer numerous benefits. First and foremost, they don’t take valuable floor space or require aisles to remain clear while they’re in operation. They’re also safer than forklifts because the operator has much clearer sightlines of what he or she is doing and who or what might be in the way.
In addition, they’re capable of lifting significantly heavier loads than other types of equipment and can be operated by anyone with the right training. Their ability to work even without power in some cases also means they are extremely energy-efficient and offer smaller operating costs overall.
