5th October 2018

The entry phase for the IFOY AWARD is approaching the home stretch, say organisers. Intralogistics provider can enter their new vehicles and solutions up to October 30, 2018.

The eleven categories cover material handling products and solutions for almost every application. In addition to forklifts, warehouse equipment and special built vehicles, automated guided vehicles (AGVs), shuttles, robots, software and apps or successfully implemented integrated warehouse concepts are approved for application. Furthermore, outstanding technical details or components, such as ergonomic innovations, safety solutions or automation components are awarded for their achievements. For the first time, startups also have a permanent place at the IFOY Award. In a separate category, they can submit their developments in intralogistics.

Due to its specialised expertise the IFOY is regarded as the most important innovation award in intralogistics and material handling. The devices and solutions are subjected to individually tailored driving or function tests, including the IFOY test protocol comprising around 80 criteria and the scientific IFOY Innovation Check. In addition, jurors and their advisory teams assess the finalists personally before voting. Above all, it is crucial that the nominees are compared not with each other, yet with their competing devices on the market.
