Buro Andersom is the source of expertise when it comes to forklift truck testing. As an independent institution, Andersom Testing is testing forklift trucks, pallet trucks and other material handling products from all leading brands in the market.
The results are published on the Buro Andersom own websites www.logisticsinside.eu and www.logisticsinside.nl and for many years we find the results of this testing in various well known magazines in Europe such as Foerdern + Heben.
As an independent institution, Theo Egberts is testing forklift trucks, pallet trucks and other material handling products from all leading brands in the market. For many years we find the results of this testing in various well known magazines in Europe such as Foerdern + Heben, and on www.logisticsinside.eu. In September 2017 he is testing two EP Equipment products.
The tests take place at a logistics company with a focus on urban logistics as well as order picking for e-commerce fulfillment. In this process, food supplements are put together for each individual customer and many items have to be single picked. The ideal place for our JX1 small goods order picker.
Our JX1 is a compact vertical order picker with a lifting height of 4.88 meter to support this task. The JX1 also offers many advantages compared to other order picking trucks. Check out the the JX1 Website to find out more.
Theo Egberts tests our JX1 based on the standardized test track used already for other medium level order picking trucks. By doing so, maximum comparability between products and competitors is assured.
During the test the energy consumption is tracked with an external device while the truck is performing the standard defined work cycles on the test track at standard truck settings.
From our own experience, the JX1 is giving a good performance and will confirm its position as a user friendly- and high productivity vertical order picker for the E-Commerce- and small goods picking environment.
We are looking forward seeing the test results later this year at Logistics Inside
After testing the JX1, the test team prepared the EPT 12EZ for testing. The EPT 12EZ pallet truck is our all new and revolutionary electric pallet truck Again, this pallet truck is tested under the same, standard testing environment as all competitors’ trucks and we are very much looking forward to the results. Traveling with various loads, the truck is tested under real life conditions.
From our own experience, the EPT 12EZ electric pallet truck has several advantages compared to other trucks when it comes to urban logistics as well as retail environment. Due to its small size it does not block aisles in retail shops and is easy and safe to maneuver in small working areas. Another application for this truck lies in the Urban logistics sector. Because of its light weight, the EPT 12EZ can be easily loaded to any delivery truck. Due to the limited capacity of a taillift, many electric pallet trucks can not be used on lorries. With a weight of only 130Kg the EPT 12EZ is optimal for this application.
We are very interested to see how our products will rate on the test. We will keep you updated.
