IFOY Award 2013
30 July 2013
Crown has been presented with the prestigious IFOY Award in the Forklift Truck Solutions category.
Sponsored by the VDMAMaterials Handling and Intralogistics Sector Association, the jury was impressed by the way Crown’s InfoLink fleet management system streamlined operations at Spicers, one of the UK’s largest wholesalers of stationery and office supplies.
By opting for an all-new fleet of Crown lift trucks, with full integration of Crown’s InfoLink system, Spicers has reduced fleet maintenance and repair costs by 90%. In addition, the fleet management system has enhanced the company’s intralogistical efficiency to such an extent that Spicers has cut the size of its lift truck fleet by 40%.
In intralogistics, the availability of real-time information on a company’s entire fleet of lift trucks and their operators is key to enhanced productivity. The wireless InfoLink fleet and operator management system processes real-time and historical data to produce itemised, prioritised information. This can be used to make well-grounded decisions that result in significant cost and time savings.
