Jungheinrich is unveiling its first app ever in December 2012. This application consists of a game which simulates the Jungheinrich warehouse navigation system. “This innovation allows the user to experience the advantages of warehouse navigation on his or her iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch firsthand,” explains Sebastian Riedmaier, Head of Warehousesing and Systems trucks Product Management at Jungheinrich. “You become the forklift driver as you attempt to outperform our warehouse navigation system in terms of your manual efficiency and speed.” The new app offers a racing as well as a training mode, and is immediately available for free downloading at the App Store. Users who prefer to play the game on a computer can choose between a Mac and a Windows 7 version.
First marketed by Jungheinrich in 2009, the real Jungheinrich warehouse navigation system consists of a module for improved efficiency in narrow aisle warehouses — a kind of “GPS system” for high-rack stackers. Jungheinrich is currently in the process of outfitting additional system trucks with the module. “Measurements in the field reveal that customers who employ our navigation system can achieve up to 25 percent higher throughput rates in their narrow-aisle warehouses,” declares Riedmaier.
Jungheinrich ranks among the world’s leading companies in the material handling equipment, warehousing and material flow engineering sectors. The company is an intralogistics service and solution provider with manufacturing operations, which offers its customers a comprehensive range of forklift trucks, shelving systems, services and advice. Jungheinrich shares are traded on all German stock exchanges.
