Press Release1st place for xetto® at handling award 2017


Following two distinguished design accolades, the iF gold award and the Red Dot Best of the Best Award for Product Design, the xetto® mobile transport and loading system has now also been presented 1st prize at the handling award 2017 in the "Storage, order picking, handling and transport" category.

Criteria of the judging panel included ingenuity, commercial viability, compelling technology, increase in customer benefit, strengthening of competitiveness, and improvement in production flow. "There has never been a loading system that is so compact that it fits under the cargo in practically any station wagon. The benefits for the user and the fact that it can be used universally in industry, commerce and trade make the product worthy of an award," the panel commented.
