The Apex 1400-L forklift features several sensors, a 3D camera, lidar, and 360° obstacle detection and avoidance.

With a payload of roughly 3,086 lb and the ability to travel at speeds up to 2.68 mph, the Apex 1400-L forklift is expected to increase warehouse efficiency and employee safety while also reducing costs.
