Noting an increase in customers who prefer short-term leases, Hyster (Booth 2518) has released a line of more cost-effective IC trucks. The product lineup of versatile lift trucks reinforces the company’s range of application-specific flexibility and industry-leading ship-to-shelf capabilities.
“We’re trying to get the right truck to the right customer,” Jonathan Dawley, president of Hyster Distribution, told Modern during a booth visit. “We are known for premium products, and now we’re providing a commercial grade truck that meets the customer’s needs without being over-built.”
Hyster is showcasing new four-wheeled trucks with the exact same performance and turning profiles of a three-wheeled truck. The addition of the fourth wheel disperses bumps on the travel surface for improved operator comfort.
Modex 2012 is scheduled to be held February 6-9, 2012 in Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry. Modern’s complete Modex 2012 coverage.
