Innovative environment

At Jungheinrich you are at the cutting edge of development. That is because we combine megatrends such as automation, digitisation and networking with new, innovative product, IT and software solutions. We take internal processes to a whole new level. We live and breathe Intralogistics 4.0.

The challenges of Intralogistics 4.0

Order cycles are becoming shorter, order quantities are becoming smaller and customer requests are becoming more specific. "Order the same day" increasingly means "deliver the same day". In order to meet the requirements, it is important to optimise the demanding processes in the warehouse. Jungheinrich offers its customers tailor-made solutions from a single source. Time and time again, we produce pioneering innovations, such as battery technology, partially and fully automated vehicles, intelligent assistance systems and innovations in the field of energy recovery.

Gallery of innovation

At Jungheinrich, we combine knowledge of mechanical engineering with a passion for innovation and problem-solving expertise. Here is a selection of technological breakthroughs that show how we can produce intelligent solutions to optimise our customers' processes:

Innovatives Umfeld Schlepper

We have a wealth of experience in tow tractor technology. In the 1950s, the first vehicles were already equipped with electric motors. After suffering a slight lull in the 1980s and 1990s, the tow tractor experienced a renaissance. In 2016, an innovative product was launched on the market in the form of the Jungheinrich EZS 350 heavy-duty tow tractor, which is now also available as an automated forklift truck.

Innovatives Umfeld Kommissionierer

Manual order picking is one of the most physically demanding activities in the warehouse. In order to make this workplace as comfortable as possible, we have developed the low level order picker ECD 320. We have added ergonomic lift, a low entry step without edges and a comfortable operator's seat.

Innovatives Umfeld easyPILOT Follow

Increased momentum: The new easyPILOT operator assistance system allows the user to move the truck remotely. This allows the employee to keep his hands free for order picking and saves time since there is no need to keep climbing on and off the vehicle.

"No other intralogistics brand in the world has more lithium-ion trucks in operation at present than Jungheinrich."

Pioneers in Li-ion technology

Content Li-Ionen 50_50

In the race to implement electromobility in intralogistics, we have taken the lead and have become more proficient in lithium-ion technology than any of our competitors. It all started with the "EJE 112i" in 2011 — the first ever production-ready Li-ion truck. Since then, we have consistently developed the technology. Almost our entire fleet is now "li-ion ready".

Autonomous trucks

Innovatives Umfeld Autonome Fahrzeuge

Fully automatic, efficient, reliable and accurate to the millimetre: Automated guided vehicles take over standardised warehouse processes and procedures.

HoloLens

In Mixed Reality, digital elements merge directly with real space. In cooperation with our technology partner Zühlke, we developed a HoloLens application that can help service engineers with repairs and maintenance by projecting interactive holograms over the forklift truck to be repaired.
