STILL again at the forefront of “First in Intralogistics” IFOY Award crowns STILL’S innovative achievement

12/06/2018

STILL continues its series of victories with the IFOY Award, and successfully received one of these coveted intralogistics trophies – namely in the Counterbalanced Truck category.

The award ceremony took place in the context of the opening of the CeMAT, the world’s leading intralogistics trade fair, together with the HANOVER FAIR. Seven finalists were represented in the capital city of the state of Lower Saxony when the hitherto best-kept secret of who had won the International Intralogistics and Forklift Truck of the Year (IFOY) Award 2018 was revealed.

Unofficially, the die was already cast in February after votes had been registered by the jury, which has grown to 26 members in its sixth year and consists of experienced specialist journalists working for leading logistics media in 18 countries. The IFOY Audit extended over a week and comprised a sequence of challenging test series in which the nominated machines and systems were thoroughly put through their paces in a direct comparison with similar solutions available on the market. In particular, the focus was on hard facts as well as on innovative value, which was determined and classified by renowned representatives of scientific institutions.

In the “Counterbalanced Truck” category the new STILL RX 20 electric truck came out on top, a compact, energy-efficient model range with load-carrying capacities from 1.4 to 2,0 tons. The intralogistics specialists have redesigned this bestseller in the premium segment, systematically trimmed it to the demand, and provided it with numerous equipment options. The characteristic features of this exceptionally agile all-rounder available since the early 2018, which shows its strong points when used both indoors and out of doors, are its high goods handling performance – even when driving on a steep ramp – and a newly-created workstation based on ergonomic aspects.
