Discussion:
the End of Materials Handling as it is known today

The Materials Handling market is about to change. With only around six or seven of the world's manufactures serving. With in the next 10 years most warehouse will be completely different Companies like KION of China DAMATIC or TOYOTA of Japan VANDERLANDE will dominate the warehouse business with hole turnkey products. Pallet trucks, reach trucks VNA truck will all be replaced with automated equipment.

Counter balance forklift sales will also decline and be replaced with complete handling systems that will be able to move products around a facility with out the need of an operator. Out side the facility there will also be big changes Both Diesel and electric forklifts will be replaced with 100% zero emission products that will have much longer ranges then electric forklifts and will be able to handle loads up to 72,000kg while being 100% zero emission. Companies Like Hyster who have backed Hydrogen to the tune of up to $260 million investment will see this disappear as hydrogen forklifts wont be able to compete with the new technologies that will offer lower cost's ,no need for high pressure systems ,be less explosive and more cost effective than hydrogen.

There are some people on this platform that claim to have forgotten more than we have ether known, So if you are such experts on the industry. You will be able to tell me which truck at 16,000kg and 1200 lc can do the following.


Have a service weight of under 22,000kg, have a overall length of under 7,150mm, have a turning radius under 4,750mm, Can travel at 30Kmh, can lift loaded at 0.50 m/s and do all this at under 20kg of CO2 per hour

Didn't miss anything you wrote. Simply posted what you said on two different dates about one month apart. a "will be' statement and "we are looking" at statement. The " will be" is very definitive statement on teh other hand the" looking at' comment is a wishy washy statement.
Possibly you can't recall that far back or it is a case of the convenient memory lose syndrome.

The definition of wishy wishy is someone or something uncertain, indecisive and wavering, or someone who cannot make up his mind. An example of a wishy washy person is someone who says yes to an invitation, and then no, and then that he will think about it

The finer points are to with the engine and the ammonia system. We will be the only company that will be able to offer 100% zero emission, with the range and performance equal and better than a diesel truck. The new Exalt V range will outperform, be more efficient, be more drivable, be back in service quicker and other longer truck life than any other truck in the same lift category.


All Diesel 16,000kg truck will produce a minimum of 21.44kg of CO2 per hour, Zero Emission Electric trucks at the same weight will have a range of only 6.5 hours and when their battery gets to 25% or bellow they lose 75% of their performance. The V range will be the only 100% Zero emission truck that can run for 15 hours then can be refuel in less than 10 min.


Just in case you missed it here is what i have said


We are looking at the FOURTH QUARTER OF THIS YEAR. We are still able to do some work on the finer parts and the major parts are all done.

On Feb. 26 of this year the exalted one positively stated this "the truck 'will be' out in the fourth Quarter of this year"
Now he states "we are looking at the quarter". Sounds like he is "crawfishing" on his previous statement.

given the amount of time you've been promoting this wonderbread machine you'd think you guys have had plenty of time to iron out the 'finer' parts. In fact you've had enough time to redesign the truck multiple times and run test trials as well.
Why do you keep stalling? I think we already know. Most of us have been in this business for decades and can recognize a con when we see one.
You know VW tried this with their engine outputs and got caught fudging the numbers.
Your consistent stalling isn't helping your credibility much, you do realize this don't you?
A smart person would keep their mouth shut and just build the truck and then bring it out at the next tradeshow and reveal it. THATS usually how it's done ya know. ;o)

"Like I have said before when the markets starts to pick back up again in late 2021 or mid 2022 we will be in a good position as the market would have changed from where it is today to a sustainable market.?

No our project is still on target for the fourth quarter, Our investors understand where we are and how we have got here. They also understand our technology and the benefits this will bring. Like I have said before when the markets starts to pick back up again in late 2021 or mid 2022 we will be in a good position as the market would have changed from where it is today to a sustainable market. Meaning Sustainable products that offer 100% zero emission with out lack of performance and are cost effective will be the best position.


For diesel trucks the market looks like it will be more competitive, companies will launch their own brand that will be manufactured in China at lower cost than traditional OEM's

Does this mean that your 4th quarter launch of your "snake oil" (aka a cure all) truck will be delayed too? So far you and/or your investors have no profit or ROI from this long term project.

What we have said is that global business will suffer from this pandemic hears what Kone Cranes have said in their profit warning.

Konecranes has issued a profit warning for 2020 due to demand outlook uncertainties resulting from the coronavirus pandemic.


The company said that many of its customers are limiting access to their premises, disabling the company from completing the installation of new equipment and performing service operations.

Konecranes added that its own operations were also impacted by the significant and increasing worldwide measures to contain the pandemic.


We don't make threats like you seem to want to point out, what we do Is just say what's going on. This seems to be backed up by kone Cranes and many other OEM's that are listed companies will have to do the same when they issue profit warnings
