Modern industrial production is dependent upon processes being perfectly coordinated. As a result, material flow during manufacture has become a decisive profitability driver. With its three logistics train models – FT, FT C and LT – Linde Material Handling provides tailor-made solutions to specific customer requirements in order to achieve synchronized transport of material over long distances within the company premises as efficiently and flexibly as possible. The logistics trains complement Linde’s portfolio of forklift trucks and warehouse handling equipment, and comprise tow tractors that can each be combined with different trailer modules. They can be loaded with up to 2,000 kg per trailer module, and are ideal for internal transport distances of 150 m or more.
The cost-effectiveness of Linde Logistics trains arises from the standardization of the material flow, increased safety for personnel and materials, and the variety of applications that the trailer modules can handle, allowing any imaginable load or goods to be transported – whether pallets, skeleton boxes, or individual items. The easy loading and unloading handling processes, sometimes using an engaged pallet roller frame make the train equipment an effective part of any material supply chain. All Linde logistics train models are characterized by their high tipping and directional stability, and small turning circle.
