What is PIT equipment?

Powered Industrial Trucks (PIT) play a critical role in many Amazon fulfillment centers. These vehicles allow team members to reach products on high shelves or move items that are too bulky to carry.

No prior experience with PIT equipment is needed and Amazon provides training on using it safely and securely.
