“As a company, Hyster is very attuned to the needs and requests of our customers, which have included highly energy-efficient electric trucks that perform effectively, with zero emissions,” said Jonathan Dawley, President, Hyster Company Distribution. “Our approach is validated by honors like this one by Food Logistics. Through understanding of the needs and changes in the market, and through evaluation of new technologies and processes, we are able to stay at the forefront of the next wave of emission reduction or elimination technologies to provide dependable, intelligent materials handling solutions for our customers.”
With the growing awareness and need for sustainable solutions, the Top Green Providers by Food Logistics shines the spotlight on certain companies that exceed industry standards for their focus on sustainability and environmental conservation. Other industries recognized were food producers and manufacturers, 3PLs and transportation and logistics providers and equipment manufacturers.
According to testing for the EPA and CARB, Hyster® lift truck emissions are among the lowest of any truck in the industry, and Hyster internal combustion (ICE) truck models meet or exceed California Air Resources Board (CARB) requirements. Hyster also provides tough electric trucks that can handle heavy-duty applications just as effectively as ICE trucks. With the Environmental Package, electric lift trucks are equipped to operate in harsh weather conditions outside of a plant, which is ideal for operations with multiple buildings or on a facility complex where efficiency is gained by a lift truck operating between buildings or outside.
