Agility chooses Hyster forklifts

German-based logistics business Agility has chosen Hyster’s new H1.8FT LPG forklifts to replace its fleet of electric trucks.

hyster“Agility’s challenge is quite rare, so we worked together to considered a variety of possible solutions,” said Ralf Glawa, account manager at Hyster dealer Hald & Grunewald in Herrenberg near Stuttgart. “However, despite the increase in performance of batteries in recent years, there was simply not enough power to provide around two additional operating hours per day – even the electrolyte circulation process could not provide the required performance. Therefore, the most sensible solution was to change the fleet of electric forklift trucks to natural gas vehicles.”
