The finalists for the worldwide IFOY Award 2022 (International Intralogistics and Forklift Truck of the Year) include 14 products and solutions from 12 manufacturers, selected from a field of 29 entrants.

“The nominees reflect where the journey of intralogistics is heading in the future: in addition to forklifts and warehouse technology, automated, integrated solutions, software, and autonomous mobile robots (AMR) for high-performance warehouses play a central role,” says Anita Würmser, chairwoman of the IFOY jury. 

Cargotec Engineering from Ireland has made the finals with the Moffett E5 25.4 NX. Jungheinrich has secured two final places: the ERD 220i electric high-lift truck is in contention in the warehouse technology category while the EKS 215a is vying for honours in the AGV category.

US manufacturer Locus Robotics has reached the final round with its Locus Robotics AMR Solution.

Unterhaching-based start-up Magment reached the final with dynamic wireless charging for intralogistics vehicles, alongside new entrants NAiSE TRAFFIC and Noyes Technologies.

Munich-based robominds also made the finals with its AI-based robobrain.NEUROS (Neural Robotic Operating System).

The jury nominated the sensor specialist Sick for its PACS (PAllet Classification System), a Deep Learning-based pallet identification system.

SSI Schaefer made it into the final round with the IKEA Project Flat Pack Picking, competing for the title with Still, which was nominated for its automated warehouse extension at Hase Safety Workwear.

Still is also in the running in the Special of the Year category for its DSR (Descend Speed Regulation).

stow robotics, part of the Belgian stow Group, is in the final round with its e.scala robot-based goods-to-person storage and picking system for small and medium-sized applications.

Synaos is also looking forward to the final with its Synaos IMS – Vehicle Localization solution.

The 26-member jury from 20 countries will make the decisions in the competition after the IFOY Test Days from March 18 to 23 at Messe Dortmund.

Forkliftaction News editor Allan Leibowitz is among the award judges.
