Linde FleetConsult

FleetConsult is the first step in fleet optimization. During an on-site analysis, Linde experts take a close look at the customer's entire intralogistics and fleet structure. They do not focus on vehicles alone, but analyze all process flows. Fleet data, such as operating hours and distances traveled, are evaluated using analysis software.

Based on the information obtained, Linde's experts create a new fleet concept that is precisely tailored to your intralogistics needs. After the planning phase, the new concept is implemented together. 

Linde FleetMonitoring

No matter how big the fleet is or how it is composed: The FleetMonitoring reporting tool offers the connect application: a tool for efficient fleet management. Thanks to the software, you always know which vehicles are currently in use at which location.

Linde FleetManagement

FleetManagement ensures proactive fleet management with ongoing optimization and adjustment measures. If Linde experts identify necessary adjustments or changes, they are implemented in consultation with the customer. If necessary, drivers are trained on new equipment.
At regular intervals, Linde experts review the new processes and adapt them to the changed circumstances. On request, FleetManagement can also take over all administrative tasks relating to the vehicle fleet (e.g. vehicle installation in the management software).

This allows you to concentrate fully on your core business. In regular coordination meetings, you are kept up to date on the status of your vehicle fleet. If you experience major fluctuations in demand, you will be supported by the targeted provision of standby vehicles or flexible access to the Linde rental fleet. This allows you to bridge bottlenecks and peak times quickly and unbureaucratically. 

Linde FleetServices

FleetService provides you with an all-round carefree package that guarantees on-site support for the fleet over the entire contract period. Linde's global network guarantees fleet optimization support at all times.

Full-service contracts offer the most comprehensive solution: The customer transfers complete responsibility for the operational readiness of its vehicle fleet to Linde and can concentrate fully on its core business.

Quarterly overview Linde Fleet Experts

Transparent comparison of drive technologies

As part of your sustainability strategy, GRUMA analyzes and documents the environmental impact of products over their entire life cycle using life cycle assessments.

The exhaust emissions of IC engine-powered forklifts were examined - with a sensational result: Linde diesel forklifts are the cleanest in the largest sales segment, the 2.5 to 3.5 ton payload range! And in the other payload classes up to 2.5 tons and from 4 to 8 tons, Linde diesel trucks are also among the lowest-emission vehicles in each case.

Linde MH is the only forklift manufacturer whose Linde H25 to H35 EVO diesel forklifts comply with the strict Stage IIIB of the 97/68/EC and 2004/26/EC emissions directives for non-road mobile machinery, which has been in force in the 37 to 55 kW power class since January 2013. Equipped with a modern common-rail diesel engine with 44kW output and a particulate filter as standard, the vehicles not only comply with the legally prescribed limits for emitted pollutants, but actually undercut them many times over. The value of the emitted particulate matter (PT) is 83 percent below the limit value, for hydrocarbons (HC) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) it is 26 percent and for the dangerous respiratory poison carbon monoxide (CO) it is even 99 percent.

At the same time, Linde's battery-powered trucks are among the most economical pieces of equipment and top the fuel economy statistics. This means Linde electric front-end trucks and warehouse equipment not only perform better, they also consume less.

Let us prove it and we will calculate your eco-balance now and after the exchange to a new fleet.

Longer forklift operating times, an optimal mix of the fleet, high transparency through technical solutions and extremely high availability make it possible to achieve meaningful and economically necessary savings in many projects.

Let us discover savings potential for you, too!

Our life consultants analyze the current state of your logistics organization free of charge and use this information to develop customized solutions and implementation targets. In doing so, we take a close look at the existing vehicle technology and the resulting follow-up costs. This means: analysis of the routes as well as the rack storage functionality. We use new technical assistance options such as RFID, supported booking in the LVS (warehouse management system), the use of a forklift guidance system, route trains and our online fleet tool. This allows us to reduce the number of vehicle units, which increases utilization and avoids follow-up costs.

Act and react effectively with GRUMA

The term Key Performance Indicator (KPI) refers to the most important key figures that relate to the success, performance or utilization of the operation, its individual organizational units or a machine.

Do you know the critical success factors in your business environment? How often do you check these? Let GRUMA's experts in your supplier core area analyze the right data, prepare decision bases and make recommendations.

Here is an overview of the most important key performance indicators for your forklifts: Permanent. Preventive. Reliable.

Forklift fleets can be assessed quickly and reliably based on a number of criteria. These criteria are evaluated, put into perspective and analyzed by Linde Fleet Experts. For this purpose, we use a database of comparative vehicles from your industry, which provides more information about your profitability.

We act continuously and preventively so that you can react correctly in your market environment.

Statistics on the individual key performance indicators can also be accessed via the system. In addition, we offer you the option of displaying performance statistics on the ratio of input to output. How did the fleet expenditure relate to the pallet turnover in recent years? How many hectoliters were produced per operating hour? Why have actual forklift hours decreased in relation to the product produced?

Let us clarify these questions for you. We look forward to your call.
