case study prominent paints
Mixed colours, mixed applications.

A productive fleet to beautify the world at Prominent Paints.

Prominent Paints is a leading South African coatings company with 47,000 employees in 70 countries. To offer reliable services to a national network of over 300 retailers, it needs a strong and efficient fleet – which was supported by Jungheinrich electric trucks.

Challenges

  • Harmonising the mixed fleet of diesel, gas and electric forklifts ranging from 1.6 to 3.5 t.
  • Process optimisation to minimise abuse of machines and racking.
  • Problems with servicing of equipment had to be solved.

Solutions

  • Fleet standardised to 1.6 t across the range because the trucks picked only 1.2 t on average.
  • Entered the field of SLAs to meet customer requirements.
  • Introduced new standards on all electric machines.
  • Installed fleet management system (driver behavioural reporting).

Benefits

  • A more controlled and efficient fleet for daily operations. 
  • Scheduled services for Jungheinrich vehicles that lead to fewer breakdowns and better maintenance.
  • Cost savings thanks to highly efficient electric trucks.
