Forklifts - what are they? 

They are lifting devices used to move loads weighing up to several tens of tonnes, both horizontally and vertically to different heights. Forklift trucks are more accurately called lift trucks. There are many types of forklift trucks, grouped by features. The main division according to the Polish standard "PN-77/M-78100" is as follows: 

Type of drive Functions The way of control 
high storage, 
equipped with an armchair, 

Job prospects for the operator 

These devices find their way into many industries. They are mainly used in warehouses, ports or factories. In simpler terms: wherever loads need to be unloaded. So, the job prospect of a forklift operator with a UDT licence is huge. Thanks to the growth of industry and trade, the number of warehouses and halls is constantly increasing, and with them the need for operators of such equipment. Currently, every warehouse with a larger surface area should be equipped with them. Not because of the legal requirements, but because of the advantages. Working in a warehouse with a forklift truck allows heavy loads to be moved quickly and easily, and only one person is needed to do this. Their functionality now makes them irreplaceable.
