Telemetery will be a standard feature in all new Jungheinrich forklifts rolling off the production lines of the company’s European plants.
The German forklift manufacturer says customers buying new Jungheinrich forklifts will have access to the Jungheinrich Fleet Management System (FMS).
"Data is one of the most valuable resources in the warehouse today,” says Jungheinrich UK sales management director Phil Pearson. “We are now making this data easily and efficiently usable by our customers."
"Connectivity is an essential key to further optimising intralogistics. By processing information better and faster with our Jungheinrich FMS, we make our customers' warehouses even more efficient."
Jungheinrich FMS gives customers receive real-time data on the condition and use of their forklifts, enabling them to optimally manage their fleet. Data transmission to the Jungheinrich Cloud takes place via a mobile connection or Wi-Fi.
"When our customers agree to share the usage and vehicle data of their trucks with us, we can access important insights into the actual use of the industrial trucks,” Pearson says.
“This enables us to tailor our range of solutions even more personally and individually to our customers' needs.
"This includes, for example, remote diagnostics for the targeted reduction or avoidance of downtimes through more efficient service, or intelligent energy solutions as the basis for cost- and consumption-optimised energy management."
