The readers have decided! As part of the voting "LOGISTRA best practice: Innovations 2022", remarkable logistics products and solutions were once again selected. We are proud that our electric forklifts were able to convince all along the line in the category forklifts trucks.

Innovative helpers: Victory course for our electric forklift trucks.

Every two years, the logistics trade magazine LOGISTRA presents its readers 24 outstanding product trends in eight different categories to honor technical, entrepreneurial and intellectual innovative strength in the logistics industry. In line with current megatrends such as digitalization, e-commerce and electromobility, the year 2022 offered a diverse portfolio of solutions, from industrial trucks and vehicle equipment to products from the navigation and transport safety sectors, for which the readers could cast their votes online from 2 May to 17 August 2022.

Together with competing vehicles from Linde and Still, our series 2 and 3 electric forklifts competed in the industrial trucks category and enthused with their performance and versatility. The compact forklifts are not only maneuverable and robust, they also boast high safety, sophisticated ergonomics and intuitive operability. Suitable for a wide range of logistic tasks at a wide variety of locations, they easily transport up to two tons at lifting heights of up to 8 meters, while impressing with maximum cost-effectiveness. Here, maximum efficiency meets minimum energy consumption.

Our EFG forklifts also scored points when it comes to the possibility of future efficiency gains and potential savings. Thanks to state-of-the-art lithium-ion technology with extremely fast charging times, the three- and four-wheel forklifts deliver top performance at all times in the hectic daily warehouse routine – and they even do this in a sustainable manner.

IFOY Award

"Spot on Innovation" – under this motto, the jury selected the best intralogistics products and solutions of 2022 on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the IFOY AWARD. Among the winners: Our ERD 220i electric pallet truck.

10 years IFOY AWARD: Jungheinrich impresses with high innovative power.

Since 2013 the top-class IFOY AWARD panel has been recognizing outstanding products in intralogistics. At this year's 10th anniversary of the IFOY AWARD a total of 51 innovations from 950 participants were taking part at the TEST CAMP INTRALOGISTICS to prove their innovative strength. 14 devices and solutions with a particularly high degree of innovation were nominated for the final. Only those products that pass the world's toughest intralogistics test may decorate themselves with the coveted trophy: The IFOY TEST DAYS. The final winners of 2022 were selected during this six-day product test, which took place in Dortmund from March 18 to 23.

Uncompromising quality, ultra-compact dimensions, the greatest possible safety and ergonomics - attributes that also make our ERD 220i electric high lift truck a remarkable winning product for the jury of the IFOY AWARD 2022. The double-deck stacker fully plays its advantages in its core area of application, lorry loading and unloading in goods handling. While the radically reduced dimensions create more space and freedom of movement in the space-intensive block storage system, the solid steel side walls provide three sides protection when the traffic gets busy in the warehouse. Thanks to the ERD 220i, working with pallet trucks is no longer a compromise between safety, compactness and ergonomics, according to the IFOY test report.

If you want to delve a little deeper, you can read more details about the TEST DAYS, the TEST CAMP INTRALOGISTICS, the jurors, test reports and exciting features in the IFOY MGZN, which was published for the first time on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the IFOY AWARD.

Red Dot Design Award

Unique design and a high degree of innovation – once again, the Red Dot Award jury selected forward-looking products. We are proud to say that our ERE 225i electric pallet truck is one of them, as the winner in the category Product Design.

Compact truck, big impact: Red Dot Design Award for the ERE 225i.

From robotics to household appliances to industrial trucks – the best products of the year 2022 were once again honored at the Red Dot Award: Product Design. Our ERE 225i electric pallet truck impressed with its progressive product design and thus secured the internationally coveted seal of quality. A high degree of innovation, exceptional functionality or outstanding sustainability – these are some of the criteria the top-class jury looks for during selection process. The ERE 225i scores points across the board with its smart combination of compactness, comfort, safety and sustainability.

The truck's significantly shorter dimensions compared to older models predestine it for tasks in confined spaces, where it impresses with maximum security and impressive maneuverability. The robust steel chassis guarantees a high level of operator protection from three sides, while intuitive single-handed operation and smart assistance systems create maximum working comfort. The integrated lithium-ion battery is not only extremely powerful and durable, it also allows fast and safe charging at any power outlet. A future-proof concept!

The Red Dot Jury 2022 consists of 48 international experts from a wide range of disciplines from 23 nations. Professors, consultants, designers or journalists – selected for their design expertise. With great enthusiasm, each product was individually tested, discussed and evaluated within a hybrid judging process. Now, after a two-year Corona break, participants and organizers are finally looking forward to honor outstanding product designs live on site again. The award ceremony and publication of the winners will take place on June 20, 2022 in Essen. In addition, the award winners and their products will be presented and celebrated as part of the Red Dot Design Week.

iF Design Award

IF Design Award

"Let your design shine!" – true to the motto of this year's IF Design Awards, our electric pallet truck ERE 225i outshone the competition and scooped the coveted prize in the "Automobiles and Vehicles" category.

Radiant winner: The ERE 225i impresses with compact precision.

As one of the most prestigious design awards in the world, the iF Design Award once again honored creative brands, newcomers and startups with its high distinction for excellent design in 2022. The participants competed in 9 disciplines and a total of 81 categories against each other. Those who convince, find worldwide recognition. That is why we are particularly pleased about the victory of our ERE 225i electric pallet truck, which impressed the jury above all with its successful symbiosis of compactness, safety and comfort.

Due to the innovative design of the ERE 225i up to 270 mm in the L2-measure of the truck could be saved compared to previous models. Above that the lithium-ion battery has been integrated into the vehicle chassis, and the turning circle of the vehicle has been significantly reduced. The driver benefits from outstanding maneuverability – even in the tightest of spaces. Fixed side guards provide optimum protection for the operator and ensure a high level of working comfort and safety, while a practical onboard charger enables fast charging at any socket.  

Concerning the qualities of the ERE 225i, the jury is unanimous: The truck is among the best in its class in many respects, which is reflected in consistently high scores. In a three-day selection process, the jury of 75 renowned international design experts elected this year's winners. For the first time after the Corona break, the jury was able to discuss, nominate and vote on site in Berlin, with strictly neutral jury standards guaranteeing a fair evaluation. 

Representing all winners, the trophies will be awarded to the 73 gold winners on May 16, 2022 at the Friedrichstadt-Palast in Berlin in front of a large audience from the international design scene.

On the move: The Pallet Champion 2021

With a handling performance of impressive 146 pallets per hour, our LPG forklift TFG 320s not only outperforms its hydrostatic equivalent in the VerkehrsRundschau test, but also all forklifts tested over the past 24 months.

Clear winner: Our TFG 320s LPG forklift beats them all.

Based on the established forklift tests of the VerkehrsRundschau, the German weekly magazine for freight forwarding, transport and logistics, the forklift with the highest turnover is awarded with the title "Pallet Champion" every two years. This time, our LPG forklift TFG 320s receives the title. Justifiably, because the compact combustion forklift impressively demonstrated its performance twice.

Under real conditions, the VerkehrsRundschau test team challenged two of our hydrostatic forklifts to a test of strength on a specially constructed test course. For evaluation purposes, a comparative performance check was carried out for loading and unloading a semi-trailer with 32 Euro pallets, with both trucks completing the course in the high-performance setting. While the diesel front loader DFG 316s completed the task in 29:37 minutes at consumption costs of 1.11 €, the TFG 320s needed only 26:16 minutes at low consumption costs of 0.82 € and thus emerged as the winner from this duel.

In addition, the VerkehrsRundschau tested a large number of other forklifts over the past 24 months with regard to their handling performance. A total of 17 criteria were considered, such as working behaviour, steering, workplace or energy management. Also in comparison with all other test vehicles, the TFG 320s convinced as the winner with a handling performance of 146 pallets per hour. Congratulations!
