As the voice of the industry, the Cold Chain Federation supports Hyster-Yale Group in achieving the above. Carried out through communications such as webinars, on-line platforms plus industry specific events throughout the year and networking opportunities with other members.
Q. What are Hyster-Yale Group’s aspirations for the industry?
As we are all aware, Energy is always a hot topic with a growing cost of consumption. As one of the global leaders in lift truck innovation Hyster-Yale Group develop solutions to aid in reducing environmental and sustainability impacts on businesses, such as Co2 emissions and noise pollution.
In partnership with The Cold Chain Federation we learn to fully understand customer pain points and then suggest relevant solutions utilising our product offerings, such as alternative energy and cold store options. In addition, Fleet reporting tools enable customers to monitor truck utilisation and battery life, providing optimum management of the fleet.
