There is only two O’s in our series of short blogs looking at the A to Z of courses we do, the first is an Order Picker Lift Truck.  Order Pickers are similar to forklifts but used for a different purpose. Order pickers are helpful to warehouses operatives for inventory, identifying items, and then moving them. Whereas fork lift trucks  can lift many items all at once, or pallet loads whereas an order picker is perfect for moving single items or orders, hence the name.
