Expertise on display
Yale will feature an all-electric truck line up at LogiMAT 2020. Yale experts will be on-hand to advise visitors on the optimum power solutions for their specific application.
LogiMAT 2020 will see the European debut of the four-wheel electric counterbalance truck ERP15-35UX, which is a part of the range extension of trucks for low-intensity applications. These products are suitable for customers focussed on applications that call for intermittent use, with a requirement for a truck that is capable of undertaking high priority tasks.
2020 marks two important centenaries in the history of Yale: the introduction of the first electric forklift, and the beginning of the Yale brand. In 1920 Yale & Towne built what is widely recognised as the first electric forklift truck to be introduced to the European materials handling market. With the release of this truck the Yale brand was officially born, and the company went on to introduce a new version of the electric truck, alongside a wide range of new materials handling equipment, later that year.
Yale will be showing a new concept truck for the first time, which features a fully integrated lithium-ion battery. Visitors to LogiMAT 2020 will be able to enjoy an exclusive sneak-peek of the prototype and highlight their reactions to the concept.
Yale Brand Manager, Iain Friar, said “Yale is excited to return to LogiMAT in March 2020. The logistics and beverage industries will be at the heart of our showcase, with our dealers and Yale industry experts on-hand to discuss how our products can enhance productivity and efficiency in these applications and beyond.”
“‘This is Yale’ is a continuing theme for our showcase events where we demonstrate the versatility of our solutions. We look forward to introducing customers old and new to ‘This is Yale’ in 2020.”
“We hope visitors to LogiMAT are enticed to our stand to learn more about how our ‘People. Products. Productivity.’ philosophy can be applied to enhance their operations. We understand our customers’ businesses and their pain points and advise them on the best solution to meet their individual needs. We look forward to another fruitful visit to Stuttgart and LogiMAT,” concluded Friar.
