By Thomas Allen20 May 2019
Riwal, which specialises in the rental of aerial work platforms (AWPs) and telehandlers, has agreed to cooperate with Intralogistics provider Jungheinrich on an international scale.
With the aim of providing a global one-stop shop for forklift trucks, AWPs and telehandlers to both of the companies’ customers, Jungheinrich will use Riwal AWPs for logistics centres, while Riwal will be able to offer Jungheinrich forklifts to its customers in other segments.
The programme has already begun in the Netherlands, Belgium, Slovenia and Germany, with other countries to follow over the course of 2019.
Pedro Torres, Riwal Chief Operating Officer, said, “Riwal is pleased to be able to provide a broader range of equipment to our customers as a result of this agreement. We are delighted to cooperate with a leading company such as Jungheinrich that has a strong international reach in the intralogistics industry.”
Kerk Wichmann, Director of Rental at Jungheinrich, said, “Customer focus is key to Jungheinrich. By working with Riwal, we can serve the market with an expanded and optimally coordinated product portfolio. This partnership makes the rental of forklift trucks and access equipment much easier and more efficient for our customers. We look forward to working with Riwal to leverage business opportunities as both companies share the same corporate values.”
