Material Handling Vehicles
Like many industries, vehicles used in material handling such as reach stackers and forklifts, emit a significant amount of carbon dioxide (CO₂) in their daily operations. This is particularly problematic at industries with 24h hour operation.
There is an urgent need to reduce the impact on our planet by significantly reducing annual CO₂ emissions. This urgency is particularly high in ports that are estimated to increase emissions fourfold by 2050.
The ongoing price and supply volatility of fuel is adding another challenge for operators, so it is critically important for companies in materials handling to transition to a sustainable transport approach today.
To help the material handling industry achieve their sustainability goals, ABB is working in partnership with OEMs and System Integrators, using its experience from innovating in sustainable transportation solutions since the late 19th century, to provide complete electric powertrains for industrial working vehicles and machinery.
