Cal-Lift Helps Daylight Transport “Go Green” with BYD Forklifts

Daylight FacilityCal-Lift has entered into an agreement with Daylight Transport to provide the first fleet of
BYD forklifts that include revolutionary, maintenance free, Iron-Phosphate (Fe) battery technology.  By using the world’s safest, most environmentally friendly batteries, Daylight Transport will eliminate all the hazards and liabilities associated with toxic lead-acid batteries and increase productivity and operational savings.

Using the BYD forklifts will enable Daylight Transport to meet their goal of having a 100 percent green terminal.  Cal-Lift has provided material handling solutions to Southern California since 1964 and sees BYD forklift as being the future of green technology.

When Daylight opened its new Fontana distribution facility, their goal was to minimize the carbon footprint and they’ve all but eliminated it. The 57,300 sq. ft. derives 85% of its energy requirements from a 600KW solar system mounted to the roof of the building (see photo). Motion sensors and energy efficient lighting help reduce consumption, as does the new fleet of 40 BYD  3, and 4-wheel electric forklifts, supplied by Cal-Lift.

We are proud to be part of Daylight Transport’s efforts to go green, minimize its impact on the Earth and provide them with forklifts that help them achieve these energy goals.
