There have never been more power options for materials handling equipment, and each technology claims to be superior to its rivals.
This week, for example, we report on a company which opted for lead-acid batteries to replace its IC fleet.
At the same time, there's significant growth in lithium batteries. And then, as we also report in this newsletter, there are fuel cells.
And, as if that's not complicated enough, proponents of combustion engines also have to think carefully, with Europe's new Stage V restrictions poised to come into effect next year.
