Roadshow Through Sweden
The cancellation of trade fairs throughout Europe gave three HINZ employees the idea of organizing a roadshow across Sweden. “If drivers can’t come to us, then we’ll come to them,” explains Anders Westling, Business Manager EPSILON.
Anders Westling, Jan Viklund and Ulrich Larsson have already been on the road for three weeks in the south of Sweden with the roadshow truck and PALFINGER EPSILON M12L97, including the EBSCAB CAE electric cab. They plan the route two to three weeks in advance. With them, they have a trade fair trailer equipped with a widescreen, a kitchen, a refrigerator and a fold-out table.
Their first destination was the logistics company Ohlséns Logistik AB in Björklinge. The managing director invited all his employees to take a look at the roadshow truck. “There was a lot of interest, and we had some very good discussions,” reports Jan Viklund, Technical Support at HINZ.
After more than 15 stops and over 3,000 km, the trio looks back on the last few weeks with great satisfaction. The Swedish Forestry Crane team agrees that this is a very efficient way to stay in touch with customers. During the conversation, you learn a lot about the job as a crane driver, not only about the crane itself but also about the daily routine and the constant time pressure that the drivers are under. “And that is exactly what we have to focus on in order to make every day work even easier using innovative crane solutions from PALFINGER EPSILON,” says Ulrich Larsson. After a short summer break in June, the roadshow will head to the north of Sweden for another five weeks.
NEXT EPSOLUTION M-SERIES
Especially in Scandinavia, the NEXT EPSOLUTION M-series with EPSCAB is widely used because it is ideally suited for transporting timber. The EPSCAB is the only cab on the market that offers a heated seat with air suspension to provide unparalleled comfort as standard.
