Cargo Space, Delivery Time, Product Damage, Fuel Waste, Equipment Loss and Worker Injury = $$$ MONEY $$$!


Made in America, HTS Systems' safety and productivity commercial delivery vehicle equipment delivers fast; literally! Did you know that a commercial hand truck can take-up to 12'-15' cubic feet of valuable cargo space in cargo vans? During a five day work week, that translates to a payload loss of more than 240'-300' cubic feet of payload area per month!

Danaken Designs of Scranton, Pennsylvania is a complete corrugated packaging and display manufacturer. From concept to design, they do it all! Last week Danaken Designs manufactured hundreds of our new HTS-20SHM-2 and HTS-20SHM-1 corrugated shipping boxes for our commercial delivery van market. These new boxes ship worldwide and failure isn't an option! That's why we trust Ken Jenkins, he's NEVER let us down! Our new cutting dies tested perfectly last week and the new print plate arrived last week. Danaken Designs supplies all of our HTS Systems' shipping boxes. Danaken Designs supplies many large Fortune 500 corporations and smaller businesses with customized corrugated shipping containers. Products that need to get there undamaged, handled ergonomically and look great when they arrive need the Danaken Design specialists. Protective inserts, printed art graphics, easy-fast packaging, parcel-freight approved and highly competitive pricing is just a small part of what Danaken Design can offer your company; over 35 years of experience!

Every month large companies will spend millions of dollars marketing their products, advertising and protecting their brand's positioning, identity and reputation. Just one accident resulting in a serious injury or death because of negligence can damage the reputation and inadvertently change the confidence and opinion of the buyer towards the brand name. This consumer perception may take years to overcome, even if the company is later found not negligent or liable for a highway accident! Adverse media exposure that focuses on a brand name vehicle can have dire consequences. Any driver who rushes back (off-route) in a hurry to retrieve their forgotten hand truck is no longer a safe driver, they instantly become a liability! What other investment could you possibly make in your company and truck fleet that will give you that large of a return and that type of protection?

The HTS is a hand truck safety rack that's safer, faster, easier, a one-handed method; a patented solution that pays for itself over and over again! The ancient hand truck carrier racks of the past eventually fail and it usually occurs when the delivery truck is traveling. Often these types of failures result in catastrophic highway accidents, severe injuries and costly lawsuits and legal settlements. Contact your van equipment provider for more information about our very popular cargo van safety and productivity equipment.

Survey Results: THE MOST IMPORTANT EQUIPMENT FOR SERVICE TRUCKS


Survey respondents were asked to pick the two most important pieces of equipment on their service vehicles, out of air compressors, cranes, generators, welders, or other.

A significant portion of respondents chose “air compressor” as one of their top two most important pieces of equipment. Generators, cranes, and welders were split closely, with 32%, 31%, and 27% of respondents selecting these pieces of equipment as their top two most important. The other category includes responses such as hand tools, bucket lifts, liftgates, vacuums, and pumps.

OPERATORS/MECHANICS FAVOR AIR COMPRESSORS



Air compressors ranked even higher in popularity when segmenting the 47 Operators and Mechanics who answered the survey. 94% of these respondents chose air compressor as one of their top two most important pieces of equipment. Interestingly, Operators and Mechanics were the only segment that considered welders to be the second most important piece of equipment on their service truck.
