The marketplace and indeed the economy rely on excellence in distribution more and more each day. Distribution centers are appearing in strategic areas in an effort to be efficient in moving product across the supply chain. Demands of expedited shipping only serve to increase the importance of a distribution center. Adaption to the new reality is key in order to compete. And, your material handling equipment needs to keep up.

At RAKA, we have new and used distribution equipment for sale and rent from top brands, and we provide support services you can count on to keep your machine running efficiently so that you can finish your job faster than ever before and with better results.



If your need is small and flexible like the Big Joe line of warehouse equipment, or complex like the new line of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) from Jungheinrich, or anything in between, then RAKA has you covered.

In a busy distribution center, safety cannot be underestimated. RAKA can provide you with walk behind and walkie stacker equipment to minimize risks associated with speed and/or rider based equipment or lack of visibility.

Electric forklifts can also benefit distribution operations due to long-lasting batteries – eliminating the problems of running out of fuel at the most inopportune times without the harmful emissions.

With our diverse inventory of high-quality products, you’re sure to find just the right piece of equipment for your project requirements. If you’re not sure what machine might be best for your needs, our team can make recommendations to help you select solutions that will increase your uptime and productivity.
