CALCULATE FORKLIFT COSTS ON-SITE

The EPRI LiftTruck Calculator makes it easy to compare the overall cost of ownership for material handling vehicles based on fuel type: propane, diesel or electric. With this calculator, you’ll be able to determine the true cost savings and estimated environmental benefits of electric trucks versus the internal combustion counterparts.

You can easily enter key factors based on your specific operation and the LiftTruck Calculator does the rest.

The calculator lets you enter:
• Truck capacity
• Purchase price
• Operating hours
• Local energy prices
• Maintenance costs
• Months of operation

Material handling vehicles are used in virtually every industry to transfer cargo, stock and pallets. In the United States alone, material handling vehicles represent an annual industry of $150 billion.

The lift truck is one of the most widely used material-handling vehicles. Although lift trucks traditionally have been fueled by propane gas or diesel fuel, more than 60% of lift vehicles currently purchased are battery-powered.

Slick and interesting!

I am a big fan of electrification of our transportation infrastructure and stumbled upon this useful free tool. Very cool! It may help some corporate bigwigs realize that electric vehicles pay for their higher capital costs in terms of reduced overall life cycle costs. ("Just show me the numbers", right?) Thanks for making this freely available! I hope to see more apps from these guys.

Working in logistics management for more than 30 years, to bad someone didn't come up with this simple tool years ago. Thomas M
