KION informs about Intralogistics Systems and Solutions

Without the excellent work of our staff and without the excellent performance of our products, the KION Group would not be where it is today – leading the way. As an intralogistics provider, the KION Group is a major player in material handling and one of the industry leaders when it comes to innovation, customer focus, and investment in new technologies. What is the secret to our success? A resilient business model and the leveraging of attractive growth opportunities, economies of scale, and synergies. The KION Group has an integrated business model in the field of intralogistics systems, with a large focus on services, automation systems, and software solutions. We are currently looking to unlock value-creation potential through strategic investment – including in China and in the software sector. We also intend to drive forward value creation across the entire group through research and development (R&D), production, and further economies of scale and efficiency gains.

Solid Performance from KION’s Products, Logistics Services and Solutions

Around the world, more than 1.5 million forklift trucks and over 6,000 systems from the KION brands are currently in use across a wide variety of industries. The KION Group and its brands Linde Material Handling , Fenwick , STILL , Baoli , OM , and Dematic are applying their knowledge, experience, and portfolio of first-class logistics services, products, and solutions in more than 100 countries, and seeking to better understand the business requirements of customers in close collaboration with them. The many different markets around the world offer up very specific requirements for KION's industrial trucks and product solutions. One challenge is the diverse temperature conditions that prevail in different production and storage environments. The forklift trucks from the KION brands can operate successfully and reliably even in extreme temperatures – be it in scorching hot industrial furnaces or at extremely low temperatures in refrigerated food warehouses.

The common goal of all our brands is to develop the best possible product and intralogistics solution for the specific applications in the individual customer segments. High-performance industrial trucks are the backbone of a modern internal material flow. The KION brands offer a wide range of forklift trucks, pallet stackers and pallet trucks, order pickers, tow tractors, and narrow-aisle trucks, all of which can be customized with different equipment variants, meaning customers will find exactly what they need to meet their individual challenges in the best possible way. We offer attachments such as paper roll clamps, rotary devices, and sideshifters; special truck functions such as an automatic engine cut-off; and special trucks for operators with physical disabilities. Only a handful of leading suppliers in the industry offer such a comprehensive range of customized options.

Future Commitment to Customer Focus, Innovation, Research and Development

With our customer focus, innovation, R&D, and investment in new technologies, we are an important player in the material handling industry as a whole. In order to maintain our leading position, we are always looking to enhance our performance. We do this by continuously improving the efficiency of our internal processes, thus also enhancing the performance of our products for our customers. In the process, we harness the synergies created within our multi-brand group in a targeted manner. In the future, we can expect automation,digitalization, and modern drive technologies to play an even more important role in intralogistics and at KION. As one of the technological leaders, we fully understand the market and the requirements of our customers when it comes to intralogistics, and we devise business solutions for the future well ahead of time. With its portfolio of logistics solutions and its future-oriented strategy “ KION 2027 ,” the KION Group is very well positioned to benefit from future global trends such as e-commerce , urbanization , digitalization, and sustainability.
