VNA – Very Narrow Aisle

Home / Course Booking

Very narrow aisle trucks are used for stacking loads, stock replenishment and medium to high level order picking. As the name suggests, the truck operates in very narrow high aisles.

The VNA’s unique feature is its steering method. VNA trucks are normally only steered by the operator when transferring from one stacking aisle to another. Once in the aisle the trucks are automatically guided by wire, rail or radio guidance.

  • Man down is the name given to equipment where the operator remains at ground level.
  • Man up is where the operator in the cab goes up in the air with the forks and load, thus making it quicker and easier to deposit or retrieve load or stock raised up to the picking level.
