Very Narrow Aisle (VNA) trucks

Very Narrow Aisle (VNA) trucks, also known as VNA forklifts or turret trucks, are specialized forklifts designed to operate in tight and confined spaces, particularly in warehouses with narrow aisles. These trucks are used to optimize warehouse space utilization while providing efficient and precise handling of materials. Here's an overview of VNA trucks:

Key Features of Very Narrow Aisle Trucks:

  1. Maneuverability: VNA trucks are designed to navigate through very narrow aisles, often as narrow as 5 to 6 feet (1.5 to 1.8 meters) wide.

  2. Articulating Mast: VNA trucks are equipped with an articulating mast or turret that allows the forks and load to rotate sideways, enabling easy handling and positioning of loads.

  3. Guidance Systems: Many VNA trucks are equipped with sophisticated guidance systems, such as wire-guided or laser-guided technology, to ensure precise navigation within tight aisles.

  4. Lifting Heights: VNA trucks are capable of reaching high lifting heights, making them suitable for stacking goods in tall racks.

  5. Operator Cab: Some VNA trucks feature operator cabs that elevate with the load, providing better visibility for picking and placing items at various heights.

  6. Remote Control: Certain VNA models can be operated remotely, allowing operators to control the truck's movement from a safe distance.

Advantages of Very Narrow Aisle Trucks:

  1. Space Utilization: VNA trucks maximize warehouse space by reducing aisle width and allowing for higher stacking heights.

  2. High Density: With their ability to navigate narrow aisles and stack high, VNA trucks offer high-density storage solutions.

  3. Efficiency: VNA trucks improve warehouse efficiency by minimizing travel distances and optimizing picking and placing operations.

  4. Precise Handling: The articulating mast and guidance systems allow for precise and accurate handling of loads, reducing the risk of damage.

  5. Versatility: VNA trucks can handle various types of loads, including pallets and other materials, making them versatile for different industries.


  1. Warehouse Layout: VNA trucks require specific aisle widths and floor layouts. The warehouse design should accommodate their movement and turning radius.

  2. Guidance Systems: Depending on the model, VNA trucks may require guidance systems or operator training to ensure safe and accurate operation.

  3. Load Capacity: Choose a VNA truck with the appropriate load capacity for the types of items you'll be handling.

  4. Maintenance and Training: Regular maintenance and operator training are essential for the safe and efficient use of VNA trucks.

  5. Safety: Safety features such as proximity sensors, collision avoidance systems, and operator training are crucial for preventing accidents in narrow aisles.

Very Narrow Aisle trucks are a valuable solution for warehouses aiming to optimize space utilization and improve efficiency. If you're considering using VNA trucks in your operation, consulting with professionals who specialize in warehouse design and equipment can help you determine the right type and specifications for your specific needs.
