The Jungheinrich Warehouse Management System (WMS) has been chosen as the “Best Factory Software of 2018” by the Industry 4.0 Research and Application Centre at the University of Potsdam. From a total of 30 systems nominated, a jury made up of scholars and logistics industry representa¬tives selected Jungheinrich’s warehouse management software as the winner in the “Logistics” category. It won over the jurors above all due to its particularly high customer benefits, its easy integration into existing software structures as well as its particularly intuitive and easy-to-use new user interface, which reduces operator errors to an absolute minimum.
Innovator of the Year
Jungheinrich is “Innovator of the Year 2018”
For the third time in a row, “Statista” and the German business journal “brand eins Wissen” conducted an innovation survey to identify the most innovative companies in Germany in 2018. More than 2,000 interviewed industry and innovation experts were asked to name their favourites from over 3,400 Germany-based companies out of 20 industries. The ranking also considered various awards, such as the German Design Award, DEKRA Award or the Manufacturing Excellence Award.
The remarkable thing about this prize is that the final evaluation is comprised of an algorithmic weighting of various factors, thus reflecting not only opinions but also facts. Jungheinrich – as a comprehensive system provider in intralogistics – has made it onto the best-of list in the industry “Railway, Ship, Aircraft and other Vehicle Construction as well as Suppliers” in the category “Companies with More than 250 Employees”, proudly accepting the title “Innovator of the Year 2018”.
Innovation and the new development of innovative products and services has always been an important pillar in the company’s success, so that Jungheinrich has become a competent and award-winning partner in terms of lithium-ion technology, automation and safety as well as digitalization and connectivity.
German Design Award
Order picker and pallet truck receive coveted design trophy
43 experts from Germany, China, the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Italy Sweden, Turkey and the USA form the German Design Council. The council met in July 2017 in Frankfurt/Main to pick the most price-worthy products and projects out of more than 5,000 submissions. According to the hosts, the German Design Award identifies and presents unique design trends, which makes it a competition that advances the design-oriented industry.
Horizontal order picker ECE considered prize-worthy
Our horizontal order picker ECE received the German Design Award 2018 thanks to its combination of high-quality ergonomic design with robust construction and powerful performance. The ECE also spotlights the benefits of a comfortable workplace for convenient order-picking with its easily available controls and truck components. Its centered seat enables the driver to operate the ECE intuitively and comfortably like a passenger car. The comfort features already installed in the standard models and the comprehensive range of options further ensure individual customisation to fit all applications.
Stand-on pallet truck ERE also awarded
Robust, reliable and individually adaptable – the electric ride-on pallet truck ERE combines compact manoeuvrability with the comfort of a stand-on truck. A modular system is available for customer-specific adaptation and optimisation to any application. In addition to enhanced productivity, the design also focusses on ergonomic aspects, particularly looking to fulfill various operator requirements. This is achieved by different stand-on platform variants with innovative operating concepts. Also, numerous additional options and the robust design of the truck facilitate the operator's work, reduce his exposure to the truck's vibrations and increase the safety of operator and truck. The ERE handles tasks more efficiently than any other truck in its class. All this makes the pallet truck a worthy winner of the German Design Award 2018. The award ceremony is scheduled for 9 February 2018 during the Ambiente 2018 in Frankfurt/Main, the leading international trade fair for consumer goods.
Best Logistics Brand
Jungheinrich wins in the category “Materials handling systems, picking”
Jungheinrich is a strong brand – a fact that has once more been confirmed: For the second time, the leading German industry magazine LOGISTIK HEUTE and the association Bundesvereinigung Logistik (BVL) e.V. presented the voting for the “Best Logistics Brand” on the eve of the “Day of Logistics” 2017. The readers of LOGISTIK HEUTE were invited to select the strongest brands in several areas of logistics. Eleven categories cover a vast range in the logistics industry, from seaports and shipping companys to railway services to carriers and vans. The preselected nominations comprised 250 brands with their yearly turnover being the decisive factor.
In 2017, Jungheinrich won the voting for the “Best Logistics Brand” in the category “Materials Handling and Storage Technology, Order Picking Systems”. Our member of the Board of Management (Logistics Systems) Dr. Klaus-Dieter Rosenbach accepted the trophy in the venerable “Kommandantenhaus” Unter den Linden in Berlin. He reflected about it as a validation of Jungheinrich's brand appearance: “To be awarded as 'Best Logistics Brand' for the second time is a confirmation of our successful and consistent development as a provider of intralogistics solutions. At Jungheinrich, we are proud of once again prevailing against all our competitors in this important competition. This demonstrates: Due to our expertise and experience, Jungheinrich has earned notable trust and is recognized by the industry as a strong partner.” Rosenbach continued: “In the future, we are going to expand our portfolio of reliable products, particularly elaborate process chains and extraordinary service according to our customers' demands.”
Strong brands determine the image of logistics
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Thomas Wimmer, Chairman of the Board of Management of the BVL, stated: “Strong brands have a strong visibility and significantly determine the image of an entire branch.” Thilo Jörgl, chief editor at LOGISTIK HEUTE, emphasized: “The voting presents an insight into the brand universe of logistics, the third largest economical sector in Germany.” Bert Brandenburg, CEO of the publishing house HUSS-VERLAG, added: “The majority of the logistics companies have recognized the importance of the brand as a driving factor for an excellent image.
