Cage trolleys, or roll cages, are a critical component for transporting heavy loads of products and equipment in warehousing scenarios, as well as in manufacturing, distribution centers, retail, hospitals, supermarkets, hospitality workplaces, and catering establishments. Traditionally, these roll cages have been manually transported throughout the warehouse, limiting productivity and posing safety risks. The Flex 60-T is purposefully designed to revolutionize this process, enhancing efficiency while prioritizing the safety of workers and employees.

“At ForwardX Robotics, we firmly believe that safety is of paramount importance in every business, particularly in labor-intensive workplaces,” said ForwardX CEO & Founder, Nicolas Chee. “Our Flex 60-T provides a safer work environment while empowering businesses to enhance overall productivity by eliminating the strenuous physical labor associated with manually operating heavy carts.”
