forklift trucks and warehouse trucks, and a solutions and service provider for intralogistics.

We are close

With 700 sales and service subsidiaries as well as independent network partners in more than
100 countries, Linde Material Handling is close to customers in all major regions around the world.
7,000 service technicians worldwide are taking care of our customers’ needs with spare parts being

Our Offering

The core of material handling solutions provided by Linde Material Handling comes from an extensive range of forklift and warehouse trucks – more than 70 model series, a multitude of equipment options as well as customized solutions when needed: there is no challenge we cannot solve.

This also applies to financing: leasing, long-term rental or rent-to-own – we ensure that our customers use their capital optimally. Used Linde trucks – refurbished following Europe-wide standardized specifications – are a cost-efficient alternative for less demanding applications.

To enable our customers to operate their fleets as efficiently and safely as possible, we support them with comprehensive software, energy and safety solutions:

  • Using our fleet management software connect as well as several mobile applications customers can optimize and improve fleet utilization, maintenance planning and administration as well as the safety on site. Our warehouse management and truck guiding software enable customers to integrate and streamline their material handling processes

  • Also, Linde offers the energy concept best suited for each application – lead acid and Li-ION batteries as well as matching chargers, fuel cell systems and of course diesel, CNG and LPG engines for our IC counterbalance trucks.

  • Our aim is to prevent accidents at our customers’ sites. To achieve this, Linde equips forklifts and warehouse trucks with numerous safety features as standard. In addition, various warning and lighting solutions are available, as well as sophisticated assistance systems. Based on series production trucks and the innovative geo-navigation technology, Linde is offering AGVs to automate specific handling steps or even complex storage processes in a flexible and scalable way.
