This issue can be solved easily if you additionally have access to a standard lift truck. Some companies prefer to use the narrow aisle forklift to transport the load to a central location. These objects are then handed off to a standard forklift which would take it the bulk of the distance. Usually, narrow aisle forklifts can not move as much weight so they are only effective for loads that are small.
