Webasto is a family-owned company founded 1901 in South Germany. They belong to Germany’s top 15 automotive suppliers and have around 30 manufacturing plants. In their plant in Neubrandenburg they manufacture heating systems for cars and trucks. The factory runs 3 shifts and 5 days a week. They were using a tugger train for their internal logistics but it was not ergonomic and did not have a good tracking. Hydraulics tugger trains were causing issues therefore Webasto was looking for a full electric system.
In 2017 Webasto decided to test the LiftLiner. Immediately the LiftLiner, which is one of the most compact and ergonomic tugger train currently on the market, showed its benefits. After seeing clear improvements in terms of manoeuvrability, ergonomy and space efficiency Webasto order some LiftLiners and reorder now some more this year for the same plant to further increase their efficiency.
