SANY Europe announces it has won the IFOY Award 2020 in the category “special vehicle” with the product SRSC45H9A Hybrid Reach Stacker.
The International Forklift Truck of the Year (IFOY) is composed of the German VDMA Association, CeMAT exhibition and a jury of experts from the industry. This independent organization assesses and recognizes the best intralogistics solutions in the global forklift industry. This is the second time that a Chinese company has been awarded a world-class logistics product award (BYD's pure electric forklift ECB18C won the award once in 2016).
This year's IFOY Award was presented to 17 machines and solutions from 16 manufacturers, including Sany, Bosch Rexroth, Toyota and Hyster, with a panel of 27 renowned logistics media professionals from 19 countries.
The jury selected the SANY Hybrid Reach Stacker for the Award, since this is the first Reach Stacker on the market with a truly economical hybrid system. Technically, the SANY Hybrid Reach Stacker contains an energy recovery system for boom lifting, a lightweight spreader design and an enhanced transmission-engine combination. These innovations deliver 20% fuel saving and enable more container moves per hour. Financially, these innovations reduce the machine cost per container- move by 15% and break even in less than 2 years.
Jürgen Keller, Product Manager and interim Marketing Manager, says, “We feel very honored and proud of this award. It highlights how SANY is committed to introduce innovations, which provide clear customer benefits.”
