Paper, Packaging and Recycling

The paper industry is seeing huge growth, despite newspapers in decline

Global paper production equates to over 500 million tonnes per year. Europe produces around 35% of that total production.

Challenges

Transform Your Greatest Challenges into Opportunities

Due to e-commerce, flexible packaging remains the largest sector by tonnage.

Sustainability

Push for greater sustainability efforts throughout the industry on a global scale.

Electric capability from 1-5.5t across the product range.

  • Increased emphasis on emission reduction and green initiatives
  • Reliable, affordable and clean energy access is a key to achieving ambitious CO2 emission cuts
  • Two main technological pathways for CO2 reduction; smart usage of CO2 and direct CO2 avoidance

Increased usage of more capable electric trucks and alternative power solutions reduces environmental impact.

Best practice for transporting paper rolls

Rolls must be loaded vertically along the centre of a lorry bed.

Developed specifically for the paper industry, our mast delivers an additional 250mm of extended reach capability.

  • Support best practice in EMEA
  • Helps minimise product damage, saving costs
  • Smaller truck footprint assists operators to load and unload more efficiently

Return-to-set tilt function and extended carriage option bring the roll back to a vertical position helping to further minimise product damage.

Improving Awareness

Running safe operations is a top priority in all stages of the paper industry supply chain.

Advanced technology and systems can help mitigate incidents occurring.

  • Lighting systems mark the way
  • Sensor systems assist the driver with spatial awareness
  • Telematics systems record and report activity in real time

Improving awareness of fork lift truck drivers, and pedestrians working nearby, may help reduce incidents. Telematics system can aid in providing best practice operations.

Arduous conditions

Working in dusty and dirty environments, such as recycling, offers the threat of debris and foreign object damage to trucks and products.

Extreme working conditions push trucks to their limits.

  • Reversing fan capability reduces debris build-up in engine compartment.
  • Hydraulic, carriage and mast protection delivers security against object damage.
  • High-level air pre-cleaners and solid multi-piece belly pans reduce impact of dust and debris.

Debris and dust resisting features can reduce the impact of the elements on truck and operator.
