Haulotte Group has stepped up its activity in the used equipment market, launching a dedicated website for used machines from its 21 subsidiaries. http://used-equipement.haulotte.com/haulotte/com The company believes used equipment is "a smart way to expand a fleet with great pricing for a quick return on investment".

The logistics start-up Wiferion will present the future of energy supply for industrial electric vehicles at LogiMAT Stuttgart 2020: in Hall 2, Stand A18, the system provider of charging and storage technology will present its inductive rapid charging system ‘etaLINK 12000’ for the first time.
