In a packhouse, there is no time to waste. If equipment stops working and needs to be charged every few hours, productivity goes down the drain. Luckily, Lithium-ion powered forklifts from Jungheinrich don’t have that problem.
“We start early, around 2 or 3 o’clock,” says Riaan Swanepoel. “We unpack, pack, cool, receive new shipments, load others and we work until late, so we need forklifts that can work long hours.”
Piketko moved over to a new fleet of Jungheinrich forklifts that last longer between charges. Their renting agreement also ensures that they always have support when they need it.
