German Chancellor Angela Merkel visited the stand of the Hamburg-based intralogistics expert Jungheinrich today as part of the traditional Chancellor’s tour which marks the start of Hannover Messe/CeMAT. She was accompanied by Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto and other members of the German federal cabinet. CEO Hans-Georg Frey and Board member for Marketing and Sales Dr Lars Brzoska informed the Chancellor about the latest trends in the intralogistics sector. With the push of a button, Chancellor Merkel set off a driverless stacker truck that then transported a 1.5-tonne pallet load to its destination fully automatically on her command. Jungheinrich is the largest exhibitor at Hannover Messe/CeMAT this year. The Hamburg-based family business, which celebrates its 65th anniversary in 2018, is presenting its Intralogistics 4.0 products and solutions to the international attendees under the slogan “Your Connection to Success”.
