What is a Forklift?

In the shipping context, a forklift is a motorized industrial vehicle commonly used in warehouses and shipping terminals for lifting and moving heavy loads. It typically consists of two parallel forks that slide under a load and can be raised or lowered using hydraulic cylinders. Forklifts are essential in loading and unloading cargo from shipping containers, stacking pallets, and transporting goods within a warehouse or shipping terminal.
