Hiab, part of Cargotec, has signed a record-breaking agreement for Moffett M8 55.4 NX truck-mounted forklifts, worth more than €60M
The order, from one of the biggest home improvement chains in the USA, includes 5-year ProCare Essential service contracts and HiConnect fittings for each unit. The total order value exceeds €60M.
Deliveries are expected to start in Q3 2019 and continue until May 2020. When complete, the customer will have updated a significant portion of its fleet with new connected equipment. This connectivity will enable it to collect data from a substantial part of the fleet to improve productivity, safety and get service alerts based on actual usage.
