Sinsheim, June 19, 2020 – The GEBHARDT Intralogistics Group was awarded in three categories for the "Product of the Year" in the context of the virtual exhibition "materialfluss world + conference" organised by the magazine. With the GEBHARDT StoreBiter® MLS and the GEBHARDT GridPick®, even the victory was achieved. The GEBHARDT Galileo IoT® platform was awarded 2nd place in the category software.
For more than half a year, the readers and users of the magazine had time to vote online for their favourites. A total of 60 products in the various categories took part in the competition.
In the exhibition webinars, which each referred to one category award, all products were presented by editor-in-chief Martin Schrüfer and the three winners were named. Against great products from other companies such as Knapp and Linde, GEBHARDT could succeed in the end in the categories conveyor and lifting technology and industrial trucks – the GEBHARDT StoreBiter® MLS and the AGV GEBHARDT GridPick® received the most reader votes. The award – a glass trophy – is now on its way to us by mail.
"We are pleased that the audience of experts and readers of materialfluss have seen the potential of our products and voted for us. This shows us that our shuttle and AGV systems address the challenges in companies' intralogistics systems and offer an optimised and individually adapted solution," says Marco Gebhardt, CEO.
The GEBHARDT Galileo IoT® platform achieved 2nd place in the software category. This is also a high recognition and proof that Industry 4.0 is becoming more and more important in today's intralogistics.
"I congratulate all the winners from the bottom of my heart for this great achievement. This is the best award you can get, coming from the customers, our readers, and users, who are the toughest jury in the world. With this in mind, congratulations to the respective team that contributed to this success." Martin Schrüfer, editor-in-chief of WEKA Business Medien.

A big thank you goes to the entire staff of the GEBHARDT Intralogistics Group, who, especially during this time, are doing their best to continue to offer customers of all industries the best possible solution for their requirements", Marco Gebhardt.
