eFleetly: Improved battery fleet management for electric forklifts

Imagine half longer electric battery life reducing significantly related chemical waste.

Sami Järvinen

Lead Business Developer

The challenge

The usage of electric forklifts in warehouses is increasing rapidly. Unoptimised battery maintenance and bad charging habits lead to shortened battery life, unnecessary service downtimes and high battery replacement costs.  

For operational performance and sustainability, efficient battery lifecycle management is crucial. By lengthening the lifecycles of batteries, the need for newly manufactured batteries is reduced. That significantly reduces also the related chemical waste.

The solution

The eFleetly battery fleet management solution is designed to increase electric forklift uptime by optimizing battery charging potential.

Our engineers developed parts of the solution in the collaborative innovation ecosystem. Our focus was especially on the user experience, fleet system development and analytics giving insights into battery maintenance.
