AMETEK Prestolite Power delivers valuable data to 3PL companies

AMETEK Prestolite Power, supplier of industrial battery chargers and fleet management solutions, announced it is providing value to 3PL companies such as UPS Supply Chain Solutions, XPO Logistics, UTi Worldwide, DHL Supply Chain, CEVA Logistics and GENCO.  AMETEK Prestolite Power’s Site Probe tool increases efficiency by quickly capturing and analyzing valuable data regarding the 3PLs motive battery-powered lift trucks.

Prestolite Power’s Site Probe is designed to improve overall warehouse productivity by providing 24/7 activity monitoring of lift truck battery usage. The tool works to collect and communicate data at high speeds. It records every activity of the operation, storing data continuously to help understand what the battery has experienced throughout the entire power study. Facility managers can examine an individual battery in full detail using two different wireless systems for optimal performance in either mode – one for a comparative view and one to capture complete lifetime data. 

“As more and more companies elect to outsource their logistics operations in order to increase output, the expectations of third party logistic providers have increased rapidly,” comments Jim Lichtenberg, Business Manager for AMETEK Prestolite Power. “The Site Probe serves as a valuable tool to logistics service providers for conducting a complete power study of each facility to determine exactly what the power requirements will be for maximum efficiency during battery charging operations.”
