Due to ongoing safety issues with forklift speed at a number of sites, Coca-Cola Amatil implemented a number of Speedshield Technologies solutions to help increase levels of safety and reduce accidents at several sites around Australia.


Coca Cola Amatil had safety issues with forklift speed at a number of sites and required the ability to set maximum speed in single or multiple zones. CCA additionally needed to ensure drivers use restraints e.g. seatbelts and ensure only authorized drivers could operate vehicles.


  • Speedshield Speed and Acceleration Control
  • Speedshield RFID Zone Based Speed Control
  • Speedshield Logic Based Driver Restraints and Driver Authorization
  • Speedshield Lift height speed Control


CCA have the requirement for a specific tasked forklift to have speed control based on tyne height and tilt, which was addressed by the installation of Speedshield lift height speed control.

Additionally, CCA sites in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth had varying maximum speed control needs and both

Speedshield RFID zone speed control and single maximum speed control have been implemented.

By combining Speedshield’s Driver Restraints technology with Driver Authorization, using swipe cards, CCA ensure forklifts are only operated by approved drivers and those drivers’ speeds can be controlled. Additionally drivers are forced by Speedshield to use the seatbelt in the correct and appropriate manner.
