Jungheinrich came away from the IFOY Awards in Hanover with two titles. Surpassing all of their competition, the ECE 225 horizontal order picker with easyPILOT Follow won the “Warehouse Truck” category while the SLH 300 battery charging system was named “Special of the Year” at the International Intralogistics and Forklift Truck of the Year (IFOY) Awards 2018. The IFOY is the most important innovation prize in the intralogistics industry.
Dr Lars Brzoska, Board member for Marketing and Sales at Jungheinrich AG, explains, “Winning two IFOY Awards in one evening is a real confirmation of Jungheinrich’s position as an innovation leader. Our IFOY motto is: ‘It’s about competition. And it’s about winning the competition.’ We have and will continue to fulfil this ambition. This year’s double win is proof of this and represents enormous praise for the performance of our team, of whom I am unbelievably proud. With easyPILOT Follow, we offer our customers a semi-automated solution that is far ahead of comparable systems made by our competitors in terms of functionality and customer benefit. Our SLH300 cross-technology battery charging system represents a milestone on our path to integrated energy solutions.”
