Two-way radios for Warehouse and Distribution Centres

Which two-way radios are best for Warehouse and Distribution Centres?

There are a number of different radios available for use within distribution centres that allow workers to communicate with each other quickly and efficiently with a warehouse walkie talkie. For example, if a member of staff requires access to items stored in a high up racked area, they can immediately contact a fork truck driver for assistance. This can increase efficiency and productivity amongst workers in warehouses and distribution centres. 

Our two-way radios also allow for effective communication between centre managers and shop floor staff as part of a warehouse communication system. In large centres, workers can feel safe knowing that they are able to contact a first aider who is not nearby in the event of an accident. This helps fulfill an employer’s duty of care towards staff.

High-performance radio communication systems are ideal as they offer the best warehouse walkie talkie systems from leading brand names like Motorola and Hytera. These robust and reliable communication systems can withstand harsh conditions of the shop floor environment, unlike a DECT phone system.
