The ultra-modern logistics centre has a storage area covering 13,000 square metres in which all kinds of merchandise - from sports equipment and toys to household items - can be found on almost 10,000 pallets and 35,000 storage locations. A fleet of 24 electrically-powered forklift trucks ensures the smooth internal flow of materials.
In order to make the forklift trucks as sustainable and efficient as possible, Rhenus has opted for battery charging technology from Fronius. Since 2015, the company has been using a total of twelve Selectiva battery charging sys-tems. The innovative Ri charging process reduces overcharging - which causes high energy losses and harmful warming of the battery - to a minimum. With these new battery charging systems, Rhenus benefits from reduced energy consumption and workload, a longer battery life and permanent availability of the forklift truck fleet.
