Introducing a new electric forklift

Small step on long road to decrease a carbon footprint and to improve energy efficiency.

Kemi Shipping has taken into operations the first counterbalance lift truck with the loading capacity of three tons, equipped with Lithium-Ion technology. The machine’s type is Linde E30 and the main task is to stuff paper reels into lorries and containers in two shifts (16 hours). With a month’s experience under their belt, the comments from the drivers are only positive. The silence of the machine compared to the ones with diesel engines is something that all co-workers in the warehouse have to be aware of. The battery is loaded during the coffee breaks and nights. With the help of electric forklifts, the company’s ca rbon footprint will decrease and energy efficiency will improve.
