Moffett E-Series Recognized for Zero-Emission Logistics

Hiab, part of Cargotec, has won a coveted “Archie” trophy at UK’s Fork Lift Truck Association (FLTA) Annual Awards for Excellence for its industry-leading approach to reducing the noise associated with out-of-hours deliveries. The award recognized the benefits achieved when Hiab’s customer Pets at Home switched to a fleet of Hiab’s MOFFETT E-Series forklifts, the world’s first electric-powered truck-mounted fork lift trucks. This recognition by the FLTA follows hot on the heels of the project winning a Quiet Logistics accolade at the Noise Abatement Society’s John Connell Awards.

With 80% of Pets at Home’s weekly 1,400 store deliveries being carried out after 20:00, the retailer needed to find a solution to noise complaints that it was receiving from residents located close to some of its stores across England. Working with Hiab, Pets at Home began a 6-month trial of a MOFFETT E-Series as it was the noise from the retailer’s diesel-powered forklifts that residents were complaining about.

During the trial, the drivers reported that the MOFFETT was just as “up-to-the-job” and just as “user-friendly” as its diesel counterpart, and there was plenty of charge-time to enable through-the-night multi-drop deliveries.

“Demands from our customers and technology advancements are driving Hiab to provide environmentally-friendly emission-free products,” said Barry McGrane, sales director, Truck Mounted Forklifts, Hiab. Hiab’s desire to “become the number one partner, shaping and inspiring the industry” is highlighted in the development of the MOFFETT E-Series.
