Time savings is a large part of a successful business. Keeping on track and on time is key to increasing your sales and overall gross profit. On a daily basis, there are simple things that can help you and your employees stay on track. Creating prioritized task lists for example, helps give perspective on what needs to be accomplished during the course of a day.
However, it’s also important to ensure you have the correct tools for time savings. Whether you’re a fleet owner or a sole proprietor with one van, it’s important to ensure the van equipment you have is going to help you save a couple extra minutes of your day. Below is a list of van equipment designed for company time savings:
Rear Access Partition
Increase time savings by accessing your cargo space directly from your cab, with a walk-through partition. These partitions still offer you the safety you need while on the road, but also eliminates the need for you to exit your vehicle to access your cargo.
Drop-Down Ladder Rack
Load and unload your ladder in under a minute with our Max Rack. With a single stage drop, the Max Rack lowers your ladder down to eye level, eliminating the struggle of trying to load and unload your ladder from the top of a high roof, multiple times a day. It’s an incredible time savings option and also a much safer option for your employees.
Are you looking for van equipment for delivery? If so, fold-away shelving is the quickest and most efficient way to deliver cargo of any volume. The flexible shelves can be folded up or down in multiple configurations to accommodate whatever size packages you may be carrying.
Keep your small parts organized and reduce the time spent searching for them. Partskeepers allow for small tools to be stored neatly in an easily accessible spot, with divided compartments to keep each piece separate. The partskeeper cases can also be brought directly onto the jobsite to eliminate trips back and forth to the van and increase time savings.
Don’t waste time searching through your dark cargo van for the tools you need – light up your cargo area with LED light strips. These small, inexpensive pieces of van equipment are actually a surprising time saver, especially in winter when the days get darker a lot faster.
These are just some of the van equipment products that were designed to keep you organized and help save time on this job. Like we mentioned before, time savings is key to increasing profit. In fact, we’d like to prove it to you! Check out our times saving calculator to get an idea of the annual gain that comes with saving a few moments everyday.

Navajo native brings water, solar power, learning kits to a homeland in dire need
Click here to view Fowler’s photography
SALT LAKE CITY – Nissan owner Mylo Fowler delivers fresh water and solar kits to families in need in Navajo Nation because he understands their struggle.
"I don't want a kid to have to go through the experiences that I had," says Fowler, who is from Navajo Nation, the largest Native American territory in the United States that spans throughout portions of Arizona, Utah and New Mexico. "It's amazing how not having running water or electricity can trickle down into so many other issues."
Over 30 percent of an estimated 55,000 Navajo Nation households do not have running water. Nearly just as many do not have electricity, according to the American Public Power Association. Fowler grew up in one of those households.
Looking back, he recalls a day during his freshman year of high school.
"I had just finished soccer practice, and I hadn't been able to shower for about a week-and-a-half," Fowler said. "Kids kept saying, 'Oh, you stink', or 'What do you do, put motor oil in your hair?' It just went on and on. As a kid, that sticks with you."
Fowler persevered. He credits his parents and grandmother for teaching him to "be grateful for what you have, not resentful for what you don't." Today, he is a successful and well-known nature photographer. But, as Fowler says, that just pays the bills.
Fowler sees his real job as a husband, father and humanitarian who has dedicated his life to his homeland.
A self-proclaimed truck lover, Fowler has done most of his Samaritan work behind the wheel of his 2006 Nissan Armada and 2012 Nissan TITAN, throughout some of the most rigorous landscapes in the country. Just last month, he added a new 2020 TITAN to his garage.

On speciﬁc rail-type models, this option allows your cargo to travel above the ﬂoor level of the truck or trailer based upon the bed height of your application.
The vertical distance from ground level to the ﬂoor surface of the vehicle.
When specifying a liftgate, the lesser dimension refers to the bed height when the vehicle is loaded to maximum weight capacity. The greater dimension refers to the bed height when the vehicle is empty.
Option found on many railgate models that allow the liftgate platform to be stored so its highest point is below the bed height of the vehicle, thus allowing unobstructed access to the rear of the vehicle without having to operate the liftgate.
A device used to prevent wheeled cargo from rolling off the ramp end of the liftgate platform.
A liftgate that is welded to the frame of the vehicle chassis. The loading platform is designed with two or three folding sections. In the stored or travel position, the platform is folded and stored beneath the body ﬂoor allowing access to the cargo area without activating the lift.
A Cantilever liftgate is a self-adjusting platform that stays level relative to the truck bed throughout the entire raise and lower cycle. Options are also available to convert the platform to a dock board or for use as a rear door.
The process of applying a protective zinc coating to steel or iron, in order to prevent rusting.
Maximum amount of cargo weight that a given liftgate is rated to handle during one cycle. Full rated capacity is based on the cargo being centered on the platform as close to the vehicle as possible or the weight being evenly distributed over the entire platform surface.
Distance required between the rear-most obstruction on the chassis and the end of the vehicle body in order to mount a liftgate.
Hydraulic operation of the liftgate platform during the open and closing portion of the cycle, which allows for consistent opening and closing speed regardless of the climate conditions.
Hydraulic operation raises the liftgate platform, while its own weight lowers it.
Hydraulic operation of the liftgate platform during the raise and lower portion of the cycle, which allows for consistent lifting and lowering speed, regardless of the climate conditions.
Railgates have vertical tracks that weld or bolt to the rear frame of a truck body or trailer. The loading platform travels up and down on these tracks through the use of cables or chains in conjunction with a hydraulic cylinder, or the use of two hydraulic cylinders directly attached to the loading platform. In the travel position, the platform stores over the rear door, although an option is available to allow storage below the door.
• Medium Rail-Type Liftgate – References the lift capacity. • Heavy Rail-Type Liftgate – References the lift capacity. • Bottle Gas (BG) Rail-Type Liftgate – Offers design features targeted to the bottle gas delivery industry.
Standard on all Waltco liftgate models, independently or a combination of ﬁberglass-reinforced Teﬂon™ bearings, slide pads and grease zerks to allow additional protection to the major pivot points on your liftgate.
A liftgate that is typically mounted below the side door of a truck body or trailer and can be either frame or body mounted, depending on the application. In the stored or travel position, the platform stores under the body and is either unfolded or extended out from under the door.
A structure consisting of a steel brace and a rubber bumper pad used commonly with Flipaway models. The snubber kit stabilizes the liftgate platform while in the transit position, minimizing potential for damage due to bouncing and/or road vibration.
Reduces platform opening and closing forces with the use of spring loaded counterbalanced torsion bars or rods.
