What made you choose STILL?
Following trials at Northampton, Rowley Regis and Leigh depots last year, XPOLogistics decided that STILL’s RX70 Hybrid Drive LPG forklifts offer the lowest energy consumption and reduction of CO2 emissions. The highly efficient FLTs are currently operating at depots around the UK, from Wakefield and Darlington to Luton and Hounslow.
What were your requirements?
As part of our commitment to driving down the environmental footprint of our supply chain it was important to choose FLT’s with high efficiency levels. The initial trials demonstrated that the hybrid drive trucks would deliver a significant business improvement with an average 35% reduction in fuel consumption and, depending on use, some even saw a drop of almost 50%. The outgoing trucks use 5.4 litres of fuel per hour, whereas the new model uses 2.4 litres hour, when measured against industry VDI 2198 Standard.
Are you happy with the level of service?
Yes, the hybrid forklift trucks demonstrate our continued commitment to looking at all areas of the supply chain as we aim to improve our operational efficiency to support customers and minimise our environmental impact.
Are there any areas that stand out for you?
Operators praised the efficiency and ease of use. With one pedal operation, the FLTs provide lower driver fatigue, a smoother ride due to cushioned cab and seat, and lower noise output in comparison with current trucks.
