LiftOne Solutions for the Retail and
e-Commerce Industry

The rise in e-commerce sales has presented a series of challenges for warehousing operations of all types and sizes. These obstacles include having to store and move more, faster, while exceeding customer’s expectations. By rethinking your operating process, implementing new strategies and utilizing the right equipment, your organization can adapt and even gain a competitive edge. Your most daunting challenges can become your biggest opportunities. 


E-commerce and retail warehouses are challenged every day by consumer preferences and demands. They must find ways to control costs while delivering top-notch customer service. With warehouse space constraints due to escalating SKU counts, a large percent of online orders being sent back as returns, and labor challenges—businesses must adopt quickly.

Space Constraints

Space ConstraintsRising online sales require warehouses to create more space to accommodate the extra supply of goods and greater SKUs they must carry. How can you make the most of your existing footprint?


  • Go vertical and utilize extra space above your current racking to maximize your building’s capacity
  • Compress aisle widths and use narrow-aisle forklifts designed to maneuver in aisles as narrow as 56”
  • Implement inventory management systems to increase capacity and efficiency

Combilift Retail Solutions

Combilift offers a wide range of material handling products that successfully navigate narrow aisles in e-commerce and retail warehouses while always considering the safety of operators. That's why LiftOne recommends equipment solutions from Combilift for your e-commerce operations:

  • Aisle Master: The Aisle-Master is an articulated forklift that can navigate very narrow aisles as a comprehensive truck-to-rack solution.
  • Aisle Master-OP: The Aisle-Master OP is a narrow aisle articulated forklift and order picker combined. The operator stands on this electric-powered solution for a quick, convenient and safe workflow. 
  • Combi-WR/WR4: This award-winning model with a multiposition tiller is built for ergonomics and safety when moving down very narrow aisles. The pedestrian stacker takes the stress out of operating in confined spaces. 
  • Combi-CS: This counterbalance pedestrian stacker uses a multiposition tiller arm with full steering control to facilitate easy visibility and situational awareness for operators.

Combilift products are among the best in the industry because they combine safety features with efficiency while helping operations maximize storage space.

Promote Workplace Safety

Combilift cabs provide 360-degree visibility so your operators can always maintain situational awareness. Operators can maneuver the tiller left and right while staying at the side of the forklift. This position allows the operator to maintain full steering control and completely eliminates any risk of them being crushed or pinned while maneuvering the forklift through extremely tight spaces.

Double Your Warehouse Storage Space

By combining the functionality of multiple pieces of equipment into one, you can achieve up to two times more warehouse space without risking operator safety. When you handle products for retail and e-commerce delivery, you can save valuable warehouse space and reduce potential product damage by choosing Combilift solutions designed for carrying palletized goods and long loads.
