LiftOne Solutions for the Third-Party Logistics (3PL) and Distribution Industry

If you operate a 3PL warehouse or any other distribution facility, having access to high-quality material handling equipment is essential for overcoming your challenges and meeting your productivity and profitability objectives. Storing and moving more product, faster and delivering top-notch service throughout the supply chain is critical for your success.


The challenges that many 3PL businesses face encompass a wide range of areas. Companies must find ways to control costs while still having the resources to deliver top-notch service. The rise of e-commerce has also pushed 3PL organizations to reassess and adapt their operating models accordingly. And finding enough qualified and motivated workers is an ongoing issue that directly impacts performance and productivity.

Consumers are acquiring more products online than ever before. To keep up with demands, warehouses must accommodate an increased number of SKUs, and ensure they can carry the additional order profiles and throughput expectations.

The Advantages of Combilift Warehouse Solutions

LiftOne offers a wide range of material handling equipment from Combilift to provide the narrow-aisle solutions warehouse environments need to operate successfully. 

There are several benefits to choosing Combilift equipment for 3PL distribution centers and warehousing: 

  • Safety: Combilift models combine the advantages of a counterbalance forklift, side-loader and narrow aisle side truck for maneuvering awkward objects in a narrow space. With an optimal center of gravity at the base, this design increases load stability while offering wide-ranging functionality. 
  • Storage: Combilift models can help you dramatically increase warehouse storage space with the Aisle Master line of very narrow forklifts. This equipment can work in aisles as narrow as 5.5 feet and as tall as 49 feet. The ability to navigate in such a confined space means that you can dramatically compact your warehouse layout for more storage. 
  • Efficiency: The ability to switch direction with multidirectional Combilift equipment makes it easy to stack pallets in a tight space. These lifts can also move from indoor to outdoor environments safely, so they function as an efficient all-in-one truck-to-rack solution. Combilift equipment is built for next-gen efficiency in material handling. 

Here at LiftOne, we recommend the CombiWR/WR4, Aisle Master, Aisle Master-OP and Combi-CS for 3PL warehouse material handling roles. The CombiWR/WR4 is a pedestrian reacher stacker with a multiposition tiller arm designed for very narrow aisle applications. The Aisle Master is a liquid petroleum gas (LPG)-powered solution offering reduced emission levels for indoor and outdoor safety. 

Designed for order picking, the Aisle Master-OP is an articulated forklift that uses AC electricity for enhanced performance levels. The Combi-CS is a counterbalanced stacker with a multiposition tiller arm and a design that gives operators maximum visibility.
