Marina Truck Applications

Dry-storage racking of boats is becoming increasingly popular. Boats often have delicate features like windshields, bimini covers, mirrors, antennas, and wakeboard racks that can easily be damaged during placement or removal of a boat from the storage rack. The cost to repair each damaged boat can easily run into the thousands of dollars.

Without a solution in place:

  • Marina truck operators maneuver boats in and out of racking with only a view from underneath.
  • Even with operators’ best efforts, damage to boats occurs regularly, costing thousands of dollars and upsetting customers.
  • Large forklifts have very poor rear visibility immediately behind the truck. In tight storage buildings, operators can back into boat motors and storage racking.
  • Operators have poor ergonomics from twisting their bodies to see behind them when maneuvering, potentially resulting in injury.

Using an HVS camera system:

  • The operator can see the top of the boat and clearance to rack beams, fire sprinkler heads, and boats above.
  • A camera mounted at the bottom of the fork carriage allows the operator to place his fork tips underneath the boat hull more accurately.
  • HVS monitors can be programmed to display a front-facing camera to help with fork placement by default, then automatically switch to display the image from a backup camera when the truck is shifted into reverse gear.
  • Product damage and safety incidents decrease.

Other Applications

High/Deep Reach


Warehouses often have narrow aisles, tall racking, and double-deep racking in order to store a higher volume of products. It is difficult for forklift operators to judge the height of their forks when picking from an upper rack level. Double-deep racking presents an additional challenge because operators must insert their forks without seeing the pallet when picking from the rear layer.

Roll Handling


Rolls of material are often very large and can block the forklift operator’s view, making it difficult to maneuver the forklift. Rolls are easily damaged or soiled, causing scrap loss. It is difficult for the operator to place the ends of the roll core into rack receptacles without cameras to help.

Rear View Applications


Maneuvering a forklift is difficult since it requires driving in reverse for most jobs due to the load obstructing the frontal view. Rear-end steering makes the forklift take tight turns in the front but swing wide in the back.

Let's Build Something Together

HVS welcomes the opportunity to work with original equipment manufacturers (OEM) to help integrate camera systems into their products.

Eliminating visibility issues for operators will make your equipment easier and safer to use and will remove a possible barrier to purchase. HVS is able to design camera systems to integrate with your equipment, support its application, and suit its operating environment.

We have been in business more than 25 years.
Holland Vision System is an American designer and manufacturer of camera systems for material handling and other industrial applications. We have been in business more than 25 years and have gained valuable, specialized experience with a great variety of applications.
We don't just sell you a camera system and make you figure out how to use it.
We make the effort to understand your needs. We take the time and ask questions until we are clear about what visibility issues you have. We don't just sell you a camera system and make you figure out how to use it.
We develop product and can configure camera systems as needed.
We have a broad portfolio (approaching 10,000 part numbers!) so we probably already have the right system available, but if not, we can usually create a new system design for you.
We can special design a system to fuse into your product and manufacturing process.

For manufacturers wanting to build a camera system into their product, we go to great lengths to choose or develop the right equipment for their needs. We can tailor most features of our systems and we will work with your team to ensure that the camera system will smoothly integrate into your product and manufacturing processes.

We service what we sell.
We don't make you replace an entire camera system if you damage one part. We can repair most parts if they are damaged, saving you money.
We write owner's manuals so they are complete and understandable.
We write owner's manuals so they are complete and understandable, with material handling applications in mind. You will get better instructions than you might receive from other suppliers - two or three pages of broken English written for an automotive application.
We answer the phone.
We are located in the Midwest U.S., in the Eastern time zone. Someone is normally available to answer calls for several hours after our closing time of 5:00pm.
