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.

Logistics management promotes process strategy, planning, and execution by considering customers' requirements and industry norms.

Since you have yet to produce 1 unit, other than a Lego model - customers can't be going for your pipe dream.

Your have your opinion and you are welcome to it, but like i have said i'm not bashing Hyster i'm just pointing out that they have waisted hundreds of millions of their shreholder money on a project that wont succeed, If you realy believe customers will pay out over 1.1 Million Us Dollars for a laden container handling reach stacker, then hundreds of thousands of dollars for hydrogen storage systems. then around $8.50 per KG of hydrogen so that would be around $80 per running hour , then believe it. This goes for big truck over 6,000kg as well lets say a 16,000kg hydrogen fuel cell forklift would cost over $350,000


We talk to customers every day that are looking for a sustainable option that won't place them into bankrupcy like hydrogen will and they all want a product that can run for longer than 12 hours refuel in under 15 min and be 100% zero emission.


Now you have your opion on how to deliver this and we have ours. I know which one the customers are going for

Does anybody know what rock he has holed up under and park a hyster/ yale on top of it to keep him from escaping again. It really is for his own good. Then and only then will he have a reason to bash hyster/yale. Stop reacting to his posts and he just might have enough time to finish up on his uber emission free, will put everybody out of business miracle machine.

Your still shying away from the fact that you have not built a truck though, unless you have proof that is?? Though I wont hold my breath as you will probably come back with "the people who need to see it have seen it blaa blaa blaa"

Funny how i just point out Hyster major problem and you say i bash Hyster wonder why, Or do you really believe that Nuvera the Hydrogen fuel cell company that Hyster has put hundres of millions of US dollars into will succeed. Hydrogen will not work in materials handling or any other industry, there might be a small chance of hydrogen working in warehouing equipment but it will only be small and there is Plug power, Ballard and the Ballard Weichai Power fuel cells.

Weichai Power are one of KIONs biggest shareholders so KION will have access to Hydrogen fuel cells without the hundreds of Millions of dollars of investment Hyster has made. Also In all hyster presentations there seems to be no mention of Maximal the near Bankrupt Chineese forklift manufacture that Hyster put one hunddred million dollars into with nearly 90 million going to the maximal shareholders.

Now it might be i'm just bashing Hyster because i think their 1.2 Million dollar laden container handling reach stacker will take control of the market , against our 100% zero emission ammonia hybrid reach stacker.

Or ot just might be that i have a point.


I know what all you Hyster people are going to say, just carry on hoping you are right

Funny how once again he runs in here to bash Hyster (or at least try to), but when questioned about his truck it's dead silence. Of course we all know why.
