Best of Industry Award

The Best of Industry Award has once again recognised outstanding products from the industry: Our lithium-ion reach truck ETV 216i convinced the jury right across the board.

Efficient winner: Best of Industry Award for the ETV 216i.

Already in its fifth year, MM Maschinenmarkt recognises impressive innovations in the field of industrial products. We are delighted that the world’s first reach truck with fully integrated lithium-ion technology ETV 216i has been able to convince the industry experts, winning the coveted trophy in the category of operating technology for Jungheinrich. An elaborate selection procedure led to 31 nominees being chosen in eleven categories. The winners were subsequently selected by an independent jury in conjunction with online voting organised by MM Maschinenmarkt.

The ETV 216i is an in-house development made at the Jungheinrich plant in Norderstedt. This piece of impressive engineering comes with a spacious operator workplace, perfect all-round visibility and maximum energy efficiency. The ETV 216i combines permanently high power and performance for storage and retrieval or order-picking operations with the advantages of a powerful and space-saving lithium-ion battery. This fully integrated lithium-ion technology ensures zero maintenance, a long service life and fast charging times. There is no longer the need for tedious battery changes, which ultimately saves time and costs.

Victory in several categories: Jungheinrich continues to impress as an outstanding logistics brand in 2020.

Every year, Germany´s leading logistics brands are awarded for their outstanding work in the reader and expert poll "Best Logistics Brand".

With their vote, the LOGISTIK HEUTE readership decides which brands they like the best. We are very proud that we were able to convince the jury in two categories at the presentation of the industry award in 2020. Jungheinrich wins in the category "Conveyor and warehousing technology, order picking" and also takes second place on the winners' podium in the category "IT for Warehouse Management".

We are extremely pleased about these awards because they are the best proof for us that professional analogue and digital processes go hand in hand at Jungheinrich and that we are able to impress with integrated warehouse solutions in the long run.

Excellent all-round: as the first Jungheinrich electric pallet stacker with lithium-ion technology and a revolutionary new design, the ERC 216zi wins the renowned design prize.

Our wonder of design and ergonomics succeeds at the iF Design Award.

First presented in 1953, the iF Design Award stands for exceptional design achievements with innovative power. Every year, ambitious companies apply to decorate their products with the oldest independent design seal in the world. Jungheinrich entered the competition with the new ERC 216zi, the world´s first electric pallet stacker with lithium-ion battery and a revolutionary new truck design.

By eliminating the battery compartment, the new design enables a completely new vehicle architecture that offers plenty of room for an ergonomic driver's seat. A fixed platform supports the operator from three sides, while the height-adjustable drawbar knob, intelligent assistance systems and intuitive handling of the truck offer maximum comfort while working.

The electric tri-lateral stacker was successful thanks to its clear shapes and sinewy surfaces. Its design makes for a striking appearance, distinguishing the vehicle significantly from competitor's trucks. The EKX's design not only emphasizes the value of the brand Jungheinrich, it also highlights the characteristics of the truck: a combination of the latest technology and intelligent solutions for maximum productivity and efficiency.

Double win in the category Vehicles

With the electric ride-on pallet truck ERE 120/125/225, Jungheinrich was also declared a winner in the category Vehicles. Thanks to a customizable modular system, our new ERE provides more than 4,000 different configuration options, thus already taking into account the growing demand for flexibility of the future market. Despite this high variance, the ergonomic human-machine interfaces as well as the access and temporary storage options are always positioned in the same place, ensuring a recognition value of 100 percent. The distinctive Jungheinrich design with its combination of dynamics and durability conveys competence that creates trust and incites enthusiasm.

The participating jurors from practice, science and teaching then examine the submitted reports intensively during an extensive jury session lasting several weeks by way of an evaluation grid developed in cooperation with Roland Berger and FOX FINANCE initiator Pia Dahlem. In the case of deviations in these evaluation rounds, a third team is used for the final assessment. Pia Dahlem is convinced that with this complex evaluation process she is able to offer a uniqueness in competition-oriented reporting analysis. 

We agree with her opinion and are delighted with the award for the Annual Report 2016.
