KION Group records strong order intake in the first half of 2020 thanks to e-commerce boom

With its broad corporate strategy and comprehensive intralogistics portfolio, KION Group has remained on course despite the extremely difficult market conditions created by the global pandemic.

The positive performance of the SCS segment was driven primarily by strong demand in e-commerce as well as the food and beverage logistics sectors. In contrast, the current reluctance to invest, which is the case in many industries, has hit new business in the Industrial Trucks & Services (IT&S) segment particularly hard.
