With the average walking speed estimated at 3.1 mph, even a distance of a half a mile and back, several times a day, can eat up 4-5 hours each week in walking time. Multiply that by several employees and multiple shifts and the production loss adds up quickly.
Excessive daily walking also takes a toll in wear and tear on employees. Even healthy personnel that travel daily throughout the facility can become fatigued, which can lead to mistakes, injuries or lost productivity. This is exacerbated for older employees, those that have difficulty walking, and those with disabilities.
As a result, many plant, warehouse and distribution center managers are turning to small, one-person electric scooters as an economical, safe and eco-friendly solution.
Electric scooters fill a gap in the market, namely safe, efficient personnel movers at an affordable price. A small, one-person electric scooter costs between 20-30% of the price of electric utility carts (golf carts), Segways, T3s, ATVs and other personnel movers.
