STILL has marked production of its 200,000th RX truck, making it the best seller in the company's history.

The landmark vehicle, a new RX 2, was recently handed over to the Ulmer Seifert Logistics Group. It will be deployed in Ulm by the international freight forwarder and contract logistics service provider.

The RX series with its distinctive orange-silver design began in 2003.

The handover of the anniversary forklift truck to the Seifert Logistics Group symbolises the strong relations between the two companies. Speaking at the handover of the truck in Stuttgart, Thomas A. Fischer, managing director for sales at STILL, said: "The fact that we hand over an anniversary truck, the new RX 20, that underlines in a special way our aspiration to deliver innovative, efficient, environmentally compatible solutions for our customers' complex requirements, demonstrates the great importance we attach to our trusting partnership with the Seifert Logistics Group."

Seifert, which specialises in its customers' entire supply chains, has developed from a regional market leader to an international freight forwarder and contract logistics service provider since the company was founded in 1947. With more than 1,900 employees, the family-run business based in Ulm is among Germany's leading logistics service providers. At 43 locations in Europe, the Seifert Logistics Group implements procurement, production and distribution solutions for the automotive, paper, chemicals, building materials, pharmaceutical and consumer goods sectors of industry.

Christian Stoll, Seifert's managing director operations, stresses that "For the Seifert Logistics Group, this handover is an important milestone in the collaboration with STILL."

"As well as rapid technological developments, we logisticians must adjust to customer behaviour that is subject to increasingly dynamic change. For example, our customers' requirements for shorter delivery times and for transparency are rising continuously. By using solutions from STILL, we can fulfil these demands competently and reliably."
