All hagebau Logistik material handling equipment from Jungheinrich in future
Only low-emission electric forklifts in use
Rental Fleet Management reduces operating costs
Hamburg. hagebau Logistik will rely entirely on Jungheinrich material handling equipment in the future. At hagebau Logistik's five logistics sites in Westerkappeln, Neumünster, Herten, Schleinitz and Burgau, the material handling equipment by various brands used to date will be replaced by some 200 Jungheinrich trucks. As part of this process, the logistics division of the hagebau Group is decommissioning all its diesel-powered trucks and will in future only use electric vehicles. The company is thus focusing on sustainable intralogistics and significantly reducing the ecological footprint of its truck fleet, since the CO2 emissions of a Jungheinrich electric truck are some 42 percent lower than those of an IC engine powered truck of the same payload class.
All trucks are rented trucks. This enables hagebau Logistik to increase the flexibility of its intralogistics fleet. Within the scope of its Rental Fleet Management, Jungheinrich analysed the previous fleet together with hagebau Logistik. In the process, trucks were identified that had previously been underutilized or inappropriately equipped. The number of trucks in the core fleet was thus reduced by a total of 20 percent. The provision of additional machines is planned for seasonal peaks in demand. In the event of unexpected additional demand, Jungheinrich will supply additional trucks within a very short time. Conversely, trucks that are no longer needed will be withdrawn again. This flexible system avoids overcapacity and guarantees high availability despite a reduced fleet size, significantly reducing the operating costs of hagebau Logistik. hagebau shareholders can also use the framework agreement with Jungheinrich and thus benefit from the new concept and favourable conditions.
