On the opening evening of the transport logistic fair at the IFOY Award Night at BMW World in Munich, all eyes were on the world's best intralogistics machines of 2017. This year, eleven machines and solutions from seven manufacturers made it into the final round. Following the six-month selection and testing process, there were huge celebrations when the congratulatory speakers announced the traditionally well-guarded names of the winners. Jungheinrich, Still and Torwegge claimed victory in four categories and were presented with the metal and glass trophies to the applause of the 200 invited guests.

"Industry 4.0 is fast becoming part and parcel of intralogistics. This is an area in which the winners have showcased innovations that not only promise but also measurably supply quantum leaps in terms of customer benefit", said Anita Würmser, Executive Chairperson of the IFOY Jury.

Victory in the "Warehouse Truck" category went to the iGo neo CX 20 from Still, the world's first autonomous horizontal order picker. In an exciting finish, the flexible TORsten AGV concept from Torwegge snatched victory in the "Automated Guided Vehicle" category. The jury chose Jungheinrich's Indoor Positioning solution as the "must-have" in the "Special of the Year" category. Still collected a second IFOY Award for its heavy-duty tugger train with automatic loading and unloading.
