English term or phrase: fork trucks
Storage & Handling of Finished Product

Standard

There must be a control system for finished stock pending release for shipment.

Rigorous controls must be implemented any time there is off quality product that has been rejected.

Any damaged stock must be immediately isolated to prevent inadvertent shipment and contamination of other cases. Spillage should be promptly cleaned up and damaged cases inspected to determine disposition.

Warehouse equipment including fork trucks, unit load formers, and stretch-wrappers, must be clean, properly operated, and maintained.

The operation of environmental systems for products that are sensitive to high or low temperatures or humidity must be continuously monitored, and corrective action taken if necessary.

When products require special storage conditions, these conditions must also be maintained during transportation.

All products are configured and stored according to agreed specifications.

Where permitted, there is a procedure to control the recovery of damaged product.

Appropriate traceability must be maintained throughout any reclaim operation.

All returned product must be inspected by qualified personnel to ascertain their suitability for return to inventory.

Appropriate traceability of all product returned from the trade must be maintained.

Procedures should be in place defining how finished product will be shipped from the site.

Spanish translation:elevador / montacargas de horquilla
Explanation:
Creo que es importante incluir "de horquilla", porque es una parte importante de significado que no podemos ignorar.
Caso contrario, nos estamos refiriendo a un elevador o montacargas fijo, tipo ascensor (lift)
Por cierto, en Argentina en los depósitos de carga coloquialmente se los llama "mulitas".

Saludos,

Patricia

Montacargas


Explanation:
The Oxford and the AKOR both have different versions, such as "elevadora de horquilla" and such, but I would use montacargas, which is how it is known in several countries. Plus I operated one for seven years!

Carretilla elevadora o "toro" o "torito"


Explanation:
Carretilla elevadora sería la traducción más "formal" pero en el contexto informal y coloquial de las fábricas en España, lo llaman "el toro" o "el torito" por la similitud de los cuernos del toro y de la "horquilla" que tiene la carretilla.
