The KION brand companies regularly exhibit at the leading trade fairs for their sector so that they can strengthen their relationships with customers and partners and showcase their latest innovations.

At its own World of Material Handling trade fair in May, Linde Material Handling presented a number of new products, including the first warehouse trucks with lithium-ion batteries, which will be available for order from September. There was also a world premiere: the Linde Safety Pilot is an electronic driver assistance system that helps to prevent operating and driving errors, thereby reducing the risk of accidents.

At the CeMAT industry fair, STILL presented the first trucks in its new range of tow tractors, whose uses include transporting people and luggage at airports and train stations. Visitors were also able to see the cubeXX concept truck in action for the first time. During CeMAT, STILL received the International Forklift Truck of the Year Award (IFOY Award) in the Automated Guided Vehicles category for its iGoEasy automation solution.
