INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY BY 30% AND COST REDUCTION BY 40% FOR THE FORKLIFT RENTAL FLEET WITH B’SMART
Our client, a leading machinery rental company, faced significant challenges with its fleet of 850 electric forklifts equipped with traction batteries. Existing BFS backfill systems resulted in inefficiencies and considerable costs in maintenance and recharging. In addition, the lack of control over the battery charge and discharge cycles and the lack of water in the elements decreased the life of the batteries.
To address these challenges, our client opted to implement B’Smart’s fleet digitalization solution. This advanced technology enabled real-time monitoring and effective management of traction batteries in electric trucks, including remote control of charge and discharge cycles and detection of lack of water in the battery elements.
