Hoppecke transforms Freightroute’s fleet to make it more ‘green’

LinkedIn +

Palletised freight delivery company Freightroute has seen operational benefits and reduced costs after replacing its diesel materials handling fleet with electric forklifts.

Having started the changeover to a more sustainable fleet in 2019, by swapping some of its diesel engine machines for battery-powered counterbalance trucks, Freightroute teamed up with Hoppecke to complete the move and maximise the benefits.

Hoppecke analysed the set-up, then fitted a batcoms datalogger to the existing truck batteries. Using the results to gain an understanding of Freightroute’s daily operational requirements, Hoppecke was able to increase battery capacity by 30%.
