Plug Power CEO Andy Marsh speaking at the 2017 Fuel Cell Seminar.
Trying to keep up with new energy and technology options is almost as fast-paced as the logistics and goods movement sector itself. Ensuring your company's products are at the right place at the right time while also working towards transitioning fleets of vehicles (of all size and shapes) to operate cleaner and more efficiently is a daunting task to say the least.
Forkliftaction.com readers are hopefully already familiar with fuel cells and the benefits the technology brings to the material handling world through the coverage the growing list of customers and deployment numbers, as well as the expansion into tangential markets with new products and partnerships.
The number of fuel cell-powered forklifts and other material handling equipment currently in operation at distribution centers, warehouses, and cold storage facilities across the country has surpassed more than 27,000 units. Fuel cells are now proving themselves quickly at ports, airports, global courier service companies, and municipalities, powering not only forklifts, but drayage trucks and other logistics vehicles helping transport, store, and deliver items all around the world.
It is one thing to read about how FedEx, UPS, the U.S. Post Office, Sysco, Amazon, Walmart, and other companies are purchasing and deploying fuel cell-powered vehicles and the savings they are reporting - emissions, fuel, labor costs, it is another to see and hear it firsthand.
