When doing so, the truck interacts seamlessly with the customer's infrastructure, such as belt conveyors or packing stations.
As an autonomous logistics truck, it mitigates damage to loads and pallets and is particularly well-suited to the handling of high-value goods. Quick and easy to maintain, the robotic truck can be relied upon to be ready for use round-the-clock and can also be operated manually by a driver.
The autonomous R-MATIC reach truck transports and stores and retrieves goods up to 1600 kg at heights of up to more than eleven meters. The range of masts means that it is especially suited to handling at medium to high lifting heights and to supplying workstations, as well as being suitable for warehouses or material transportation. The R-MATIC uses its innovative 3D camera to detect the storage location in the rack and the pallet openings. It can store and retrieve its load precisely by adjusting the prongs. The truck's geonavigation does not require any additional infrastructure and it interacts safely and efficiently with individuals, non-automated trucks, or conveyor belts and packing stations. Dual Mode means that the R-MATIC can also be controlled manually.
The C-MATIC automated mobile platform from Linde Material Handling is ideal for transporting material over short and medium distances in confined spaces. The load can be picked up and set down together with trolleys that the C-MATIC can drive underneath. Transport between static reloading stations or conveyor belts is also possible. Depending on the model, the automated platform can handle maximum loads of 600, 1000, or 1500 kilograms. Routes and transport orders are controlled via software. The mobile platforms navigate within the space using the QR codes affixed to the floor, stop automatically in front of obstacles, or drive round them. The safety technology and extremely compact external dimensions mean that C-MATIC trucks can also be used in places where pedestrians and other trucks are moving around. The applications of the C-MATIC trucks can be changed flexibly or expanded by combining them with additional trucks.
The autonomously controlled pallet truck Linde T-MATIC is designed for transport over long distances or for block stacking in preparation for dispatch. The model is designed to take loads of up to 3000 kilograms, and it can be used either alone or as part of an automated fleet. At any given time it is also possible to control the pallet truck manually. The truck's navigational system does not require any additional installation of control technology, such as tracks on the floor or laser reflectors, but rather uses optical sensors to reliably react to any obstacles or other transport movements within its operational environment. Thanks to innovative safety and navigation technology, the T-MATIC is also suitable for use in environments in which people and automated machines have to work together flexibly and in tight spaces. As an autonomous logistics truck, the Linde T-MATIC causes less damage to cargo and infrastructure.

Automatic speed reduction when cornering also gives the E10 high stability.
The X20 – X35 counterbalance forklift trucks from Linde Material Handling are the first electric forklifts whose high performance and robustness means they can be used as a genuine alternative to internal combustion (IC) trucks. Customers therefore enjoy absolute freedom of choice and are able to choose a quiet, emission-free alternative for even the most challenging applications, without having to allow for any loss of performance. The basis for all of this is the common platform developed by Linde for counterbalance forklift trucks, whether powered by internal combustion engines or electricity. This means that the X20 – X35 forklifts combine the best of two worlds: the characteristic output and power development of IC trucks and the dynamics, flexibility, and freedom from emissions offered by electric trucks.
Rapid handling processes are only possible if forklift trucks possess precision power transmission and control, which also saves time and increases handling capacity. For decades, Linde Material Handling has set the standards for productivity and efficiency in the development of internal combustion trucks.
The interplay of the hydrostatic direct drive, dual pedal control, and Linde Load Control, as well as the outstanding ergonomics of Linde trucks, ensure that the driver can quickly and precisely carry out all travel and lifting tasks at all times. Thanks to intelligent controls and the tuning of the diesel, propellant gas, and natural gas engines, the necessary output is always available.
Safety is yet another essential principle for Linde's IC truck development, leading to a sophisticated design; all parts and components are exceptionally robust while still ensuring optimum visibility. What's more, a range of mechanical and electrical systems enhances both the trucks' active and passive safety levels.
Linde's wide range of internal combustion trucks covers a load bearing capacity of 1.4 to 18 tons.
The Linde H14 - H20 EVO IC trucks can go the distance even in the toughest conditions. The combination of the hydrostatic direct drive, robust engines, and the Linde Load Control facilitates both rapid and precise operation and exceptional handling performance. At the same time, service costs remain low, as the hydrostatic drive operates without a transmission, clutch, or drum brakes, meaning it is maintenance-free. Choose from a range of cost-effective, low-emission diesel, propellant gas, and natural gas engines.
The IC truck H20 - H35 is powerful, easy to operate, robust, low-maintenance, and versatile. The forklift for loads between 2,000 and 3,500 kilograms is particularly well suited for high loads in multi-shift operation and assignments in the harshest outdoor conditions.

Long service intervals and maintenance-free components ensure outstanding availability. The dual-pedal control and Linde Load Control ensure exceptional comfort and efficient operation. The combination of perfectly tailored performance, robust construction, and efficient handling make the H35 – H50 IC trucks extremely productive and economical to operate.
The quality of the H40 - H50 EVO IC trucks really comes to the fore in especially long and challenging applications. Powerful engines, a hydrostatic direct drive, and the Linde Load Control lift mast control system all ensure consistently high operational performance. At the same time, the truck only rarely needs to be taken off duty for servicing, as the bearings of the axles and tilt cylinders, for example, do not require maintenance. The same applies to the robust direct drive that operates without a transmission or drum brakes. Enhanced safety is assured thanks, among other things, to the Linde Protector Frame, that sees the roof and frame form a single robust unit.
Safe handling and high handling performance - with the H50 - H80 EVO IC trucks, the two go hand in hand. These robust trucks are ideally suited to heavy-duty applications with large loads. The protective driver's roof and frame form a single compact unit to ensure greater safety, while the slim profile of the lift mast improves the driver's vision. Powerful engines, the hydrostatic direct drive, and the Linde Load Control lift mast control system all guarantee high operational performance. Plus, the hydrostatic drive operates without a transmission, clutch, differential or drum brakes - reducing servicing time and further increasing handling capacity.
The H100 - H180 D IC trucks can transport even the heaviest of loads precisely, swiftly, and cost-effectively, securing a competitive advantage in terms of handling performance. All this is made possible by Linde's hydrostatic drive, which allows heavy trucks to be moved with millimeter precision. The driver can quickly and smoothly shift between backward and forward movement, while modern diesel engines guarantee high torque and low fuel consumption.
The HT100 - HT180 Ds IC trucks are fast and efficient when handling heavy loads: a fact guaranteed by the well coordinated combination of modern diesel engines, transmission, and hydrodynamic drive. This technology ensures exceptionally strong handling performance, particularly for transport over long distances. What's more, drivers of trucks in this class benefit from excellent all-round visibility, as essential components, such as the mast and counterbalance, have been designed for optimal vision.
Even for shorter distances you need the performance of the transport truck, because the pallet trucks have to master many difficult situations in a short time: Narrow aisles, tight truck loading bays or steep ramps make goods receiving and transport difficult. So that your handling capacity stays high under all circumstances, Linde Material Handling offers a large selection of particularly agile pallet trucks. They have compact and precise steering systems. This makes many maneuvers easier in tight environments.
The models with electric power steering also profit from powerful motors, which Linde combines with quick-reacting brakes. Often multiple braking systems are used, which complement each other. This makes transport from A to B not only faster, but also safe. The lifting capacity of the pallet trucks and pallet lift trucks from Linde ranges from 500 to 3.300 kg.
The pallet lift truck M25 has a rugged construction and will not bend under heavy loads. Its steel chassis can take about 25 percent more weight than comparable models of this size. The hydraulics of the M25 are protected from dust and are well suited to long, hard working days, with a minimum of service. The drive wheels and rollers increase handling capacity with their low rolling resistance. The tiller also has a large steering angle on both sides. It's therefore easy to maneuver the M25 in a tight space, such as the truck loading bays. A broad tiller handle protects the hands from injury. The pallet lift truck M25 has a maximum load capacity of 2500 kg.
The CiTi one pallet truck is ideal for rapid goods deliveries by truck and ensures efficient processes, even if the street or sidewalk are uneven and narrow. This is because of the wheels and drive of the pallet truck: The load wheels pivot, at the same time, the drive wheel with integrated motor has a large diameter. This helps the pallet truck to manage higher curbs. In addition, the compact truck can be maneuvered effortlessly, because the operator controls all movements and the brakes easily using their thumb on the EasyControl joystick. The parking brake stops the truck safely on gradients or on truck hoisting platforms. The electric pallet lift truck CiTi one has a lifting capacity of 500 kg.
Thanks to its high-performance 3-kW three-phase motor, the T20 – T25 RW pallet truck from Linde Material Handling effortlessly achieves its top speed of 12 kilometers per hour. Even with a full load of 2500 kilos, it still reaches 10 kilometers per hour. While transferring pallets, the operator can enjoy a spacious 970 mm-wide chassis and a raised, comfortable seating position transverse to the direction of travel. This provides the best possible visibility of the warehouse environment at all times, both in front and behind the truck. The driver is able to control the transportation, loading and unloading of pallets with their fingertips using the intuitively arranged control elements. The pallet truck is especially suitable for quick pallet transfer, but also works for the occasional loading and unloading of containers or trucks.
The pallet lift trucks M10 X and M10 XE can lift their forks via scissor lift to a height of 800 mm and have a very compact design. This is why these trucks are used flexibly in transport tasks, as mobile working platforms, or for occasional order picking in the tightest of spaces. Linde offers two versions: The M10 XE model has an electric lift drive. The operator doesn't have to use any strength to lift or lower the load. In the model M10 X, lifting is initiated manually by the operator using the tiller. The direction of movement can be changed using a single lever located on the handle. Both models have a rugged, warp resistant chassis and a reinforced tiller. The pallet lift truck with scissor lift M10 X/XE can carry and lift a maximum load of 1000 kg.
The MT15 electric pallet truck unfolds its potential above all on short distances and demanding terrain: narrow aisles, steep ramps and packed loading areas are no problem for the agile all-rounder. Its compact design, for example the truck's length including the back of the fork at only 400 mm, makes it easy to maneuver in narrow aisles in the warehouse or in retail stores. As a light weight of only 180 kilograms, the pallet truck can also be used in mezzanine floors. The electric traction and lifting performance relieve the operator, who hardly needs to exert any force to transport loads weighing up to 1.5 tonnes. The long tiller protects the operator, as they'll automatically keep a safe distance from the truck. The MT15 is particularly flexible with the lithium-ion battery, which allows intermediate charging.
Whether in retail trade or in production areas, wherever hand pallet trucks have been used up to now, the MT15 C electric low-lift pallet truck can offer higher handling capacities with less use of force. In pedestrian mode, the pallet truck effortlessly transports loads of up to 1.5 tonnes. Thanks to its compact design, the truck is easy to maneuver even in narrow aisles and tight curves. When loading and transporting pallets at ground level over short distances, the compact truck is a cost-effective, powerful alternative to the manual hand pallet truck. The truck relieves employees of physically demanding transport tasks and contributes to higher productivity in the warehouse and quicker city deliveries.
The MT12 pallet truck has a particularly compact design and is therefore very easy to handle - even when space is at a premium. This ensures fast handling processes in the retail trade, in narrow aisles or in production areas. The vehicle is equipped with a lithium-ion battery that can be easily replaced via plug-and-play. Charging takes place via an external charger at any socket. An effective parking brake holds the truck firmly in position when it is, for example, on an inclined truck loading ramp. The MT12 pallet truck has a robust chassis and reinforced forks and can therefore easily transport loads of up to 1,200 kilograms.
The T16, T18, and T20 pallet trucks have a particularly rugged construction. For example, tiller and motor cover are made of fiberglass-reinforced materials and can work reliably and continuous for a long time, maneuvering, order picking, and transporting. The low chassis provides more safety. It covers all of the wheels so the user's feet do not come into contact with them. The tiller is mounted at a very low point on the truck. The operator is therefore at a safe distance from the pallet truck with the tiller folded down.
The effective electric braking system is also important for the safety of the T16, T18, and T20. The trucks accelerate quickly with the powerful three-phase motor and the booster effect provides even more output in difficult situations. Depending on the version, they boast a lifting capacity of 1,600 to 2,000 kilograms.
The T16 P and T20 P pallet trucks from Linde Material Handling guarantee fast transport processes over shorter and medium distances. The highly responsive 1.2 kW engine very quickly reaches its maximum speed of six kilometers per hour - with and without load. In addition, the tandem load wheels ensure a good drive even on uneven ground. Service technicians can configure important operating parameters such as maximum acceleration to make the truck even more suitable for individual requirements. As a result, processes run more efficiently and safely. If necessary, the driver can fold up the stand-on platform. This turns the low-platform truck into a pedestrian model. The T16 P model has a load capacity of 1,600 kilograms, while the T20 P transports a maximum of 2000 kilograms.
The T20 - T25 FP pallet truck demonstrates its strengths in cramped conditions. With a chassis width of just 720 mm and precise power steering, it is extremely maneuverable, even in the tightest of spaces. This makes it particularly well suited for loading and unloading. With a maximum speed of 14 km/h (optional), the T20 - T25 FP can transport loads quickly and efficiently over medium distances, effortlessly moving loads of between 2000 and 2500 kg. A deep-seated chassis made of solid steel protects the driver in all driving situations, while the optional full-suspension operator's platform reduces the physical strain caused by vibrations and shocks.
The T20 - T25 AP/SP pallet trucks offer tailored ergonomic working conditions for the driver. Linde's basic concept is flexible. In the AP model, the driver can move the standing platform up, and fold down the steering tiller. The platform truck changes into a full-service pedestrian model as needed. In contrast, the SP mode has a fixed standing platform.
The truck has an e-driver controller from Linde, with which the operator stands at a right angle to the direction of travel and can see both forward and backward. Many maneuvers are therefore much easier and can be done more quickly. The pallet trucks have a maximum lifting capacity of 2000 or 2400 kg depending on the model. Lithium-ion batteries are also available.
The T14 S, T20 - T25 S/SF pallet trucks have a particularly narrow chassis, barely wider than a pallet. Together with a precise electrical steering unit, this feature ensures that the pallet truck is perfectly maneuverable. You can increase handling capacity even in constricted spaces. The construction of the platform plays an important role. It is completely separate from the chassis and absorbs most vibration arising from uneven surfaces. The high standing position makes processes safer. From their position, the driver can keep an eye on the fork, and pick up pallets quickly. The T14 S, T20 - T25 S/SF pallet trucks have a maximum lifting capacity of 1400, 2000 or 2500 kg depending on the model.
The pallet truck T33 R is designed for particularly fast transport processes involving high loads. Two 6.5 kW motors make it possible for the truck to accelerate to its maximum speed in a few seconds. Efficient brakes with ABS functions also ensure that the pallet truck slows down just as quickly.
There are also various drive programs which adjust the speed, acceleration, and brake function depending on the pallet truck's direction of travel. The operator's work station has an ergonomic design so that they remain focused when in the fast T33 R and do not get tired. All the control elements can be individually adjusted. The T33 R pallet truck has a load capacity of 3300 kg.
The pallet truck with order picking lift T16 L makes handling and occasional order picking easier. The operator lifts the pallet to a comfortable height and can then deposit or load the goods. In addition, the truck adapts this lift automatically with the optional AutoLift function. The load height for the operator thus remains the same even when goods are stacked on the pallet. A rugged steel construction protects the truck from damage during tough, continuous use. The low chassis covers the wheels and protects the operator's feet. The powerful three-phase motor provides good acceleration, even with the maximum load of 1600 kg. At the maximum lift height, the truck has a residual load capacity of 800 kg.
The T25 - T30 pallet trucks from Linde Material Handling are designed for use in confined and highly frequented storage areas. Thanks to a narrow chassis and innovative rollers, load handling is much easier. The intuitively arranged control elements on the ergonomically designed tiller head means the operator can easily control the pallet truck with either the right or left hand. The long, low mounted tiller keeps the truck at a safe distance. In tight curves, the operator can maneuver with precision in creep speed when the tiller is in a vertical position meaning that both goods and the truck as well as other employees are well protected. If the operator releases the butterfly steering or changes the direction of travel, the truck brakes automatically.
The pallet lift truck M25 Scale+ has a scale system with a tolerance of only 500 g. This means users are spared a trip to an external precision scale and save time when loading a truck. Linde also offers printers and memory cards if the user wants to store the measurement. For example, deviations from actual order quantities can be documented. The warp-free construction of the M25 Scale+ ensures high handling performance. In this way, the truck not only has an extraordinarily high load capacity for the class, but can also handle tough, continuous use with no need for servicing. The operator's hands are protected by a wide tiller handle. The M25 Scale+ pallet truck can transport weights of up to 2500 kg.
The T20 - T25 R pallet trucks move loads of 2,000 to 2,500 kg effortlessly at speeds of up to 10 km/h. This is ensured by its powerful 3 kW AC motor. Without a load, the maximum speed is as high as 12 km/h. These compact forklifts are also ideal for loading and unloading trucks. Thanks to the high seating position, which is perpendicular to the direction of travel, drivers have a clear view of the load and their surroundings in both directions. If energy-saving operation is required, ECO mode can be activated for the trucks. This reduces power consumption by 12 percent.
The T20 - T25 SR pallet trucks are suitable for a wide range of applications over medium distances and in tight spaces, such as transporting and storing pallets and loading and unloading trucks. This is made possible by the particularly compact 790 mm-wide chassis, which is narrower than a Europallet. In addition, with a top speed of 12 km/h, the trucks ensure extremely fast and productive handling. Thanks to a stabilization system for level compensation, this applies even under difficult conditions, e. g., in areas with many uneven or sloping surfaces. The driver also has excellent visibility in all directions due to the lateral standing position on the vehicle.
The T20 – T25 AP pallet truck from Linde Material Handling is equipped with a fold-out, fully suspended stand-on platform. Over longer distances, the operator can comfortably ride on the platform at speeds of up to 10 km/h, protected by the folding side guards. The platform also registers when the operator leaves the platform and automatically brings the vehicle to a halt. If necessary, the operator can steer the vehicle as a pedestrian truck. The truck is also suitable for loading and unloading applications: with its narrow chassis, innovative castor wheels and creep speed function, it allows precise maneuvering and offers optimum stability. If the operator releases the butterfly steering or changes direction, the truck brakes automatically. When cornering, it reduces its speed. The pallet truck is available with alternative fork lengths and the Linde BlueSpot™ as options.
Suitable for any transport distance and stacking height: Linde has a wide range of electro pallet stackers for loads between 800 and 2,000 kilograms. Their strengths can be utilized anywhere requiring fast work and where safety is of the highest order, even if there isn't much space available. That's why these pallet stackers, with their narrow chassis, are not only agile, but handle the load with particular precision.
In addition, they shunt and accelerate with precision, with no jerking, and are energy saving. Their modern drive control makes that possible. And: High performance drive technology ensures rapid transport of the goods. The ergonomic tiller head enables efficient and fatigue-free work, as users can reach its elements easily and operate the truck intuitively.
The electric pallet stackers ML 10 and MM 10 are extremely versatile. For example, they can be used as an ergonomic order picker platform or for transporting lighter goods. During order picking, the operator lifts his work surface to a comfortable height, which protects his back. During the transport of goods, an initial lift provides more ground clearance. Unevenness or ramps are not a problem. It is also important that different mast heights are available. This enables the truck to be precisely adapted to the respective area of application. Safety is ensured by the long tiller arm, hand guards and an effective parking brake. The electric pallet stackers ML 10 and MM 10 have a maximum load capacity of 1000 kilograms.
Whether storing or picking, distance transport or pallet transfer: The electro pallet stackers L10 - L12, with their slim chassis and good clear view masts make many maneuvers easier, especially where there is little space available. The operator profits from the tiller being mounted at a low point, which guarantees a safe distance from the stacker. There is also a creep speed function for very slow and tight maneuvers. Here the tiller is in an upright position. Overall the truck operates completely intuitively. All control elements are ergonomically arranged within the tiller head and provide for fatigue-free work.
The L14 C pallet stacker is a flexible and efficient handling solution for the transport of pallets, gitter or pallet boxes. With the help of the OptiLift mast control, the storage and retrieval of light to medium-weight goods can be carried out smoothly, precisely and quietly. All control elements of the ergonomic tiller head can be conveniently operated with both hands. A hand guard on the tiller head protects the operator from injury. At the same time, the long and low mounted tiller arm ensures that it is at a safe distance from the truck. An effective parking brake holds the truck securely on a slope. A maintenance-free AC motor reduces operating costs. The L14 C pallet stacker transports loads with a total weight of up to 1,400 kilograms.
The L14 - L16 R pallet stackers can achieve lifting heights of up to 5,316 millimeters.

Users benefit from the easy control, precise acceleration and effective braking that these trucks provide. In addition, the truck is very agile and easy to maneuver in narrow aisles or elevators where there is limited space. The tow tractors are designed to provide stability on three wheels, which allows operators to use the tow tractors on ramps or on uneven surfaces. Its maximum towing load is five tons. It can reach a maximum speed of 6 kilometers per hour.
The W20 electric tow tractor from Linde Material Handling transports heavy loads quickly and safely. Its maneuverability is key to this; because of its compact dimensions, the platform truck is very versatile. The energy-saving and precise power steering makes any maneuver easier, even within a small space. This increases throughput. The truck has a robust design: The solid, one-piece chassis protects all the components during difficult heavy-duty operations. The cab is mounted on hydraulic oscillating elements and therefore decoupled from the chassis. In this way, few vibrations and road noises reach the driver. The W20 electric tow tractor can take up to two tons on its loading area. The maximum towing capacity is 4.5 tons.
The electric tow tractors P40 - P60 C are compact and maneuverable towing vehicles which are particularly suitable for indoor transport and line supply in production. Thanks to a wide range of trailer couplings, the P40 - P60 C are compatible with a wide variety of trailer types. The special design of the vehicles allows the driver an optimum view of the trailer and load. The design is very ergonomic: the dashboard, backrest and driver's platform are decoupled from the chassis and absorb shocks and vibrations. The ergonomic and intuitive Linde steering wheel is height-adjustable and can be adapted to the driver's needs.
Modern industrial production is dependent upon processes being perfectly coordinated to deliver material to the assembly lines on time and in the correct order. As a result, material flow during manufacture has become a decisive profitability driver. With the logistic train frames LT10 – LT20, Linde Material Handling provides tailor-made solutions to specific customer requirements in order to achieve synchronized transport of material over long distances within the company premises as efficiently and flexibly as possible. The logistic trains complement Linde's portfolio of forklift trucks and warehouse handling equipment, and comprise tow tractors that can each be combined with different trailer modules in order to transport load carriers with rollers or pallets They can be loaded with up to 2,000 kg per trailer module, and are ideal for internal transport distances starting at 150 m since they transport larger loads more quickly. The cost-effectiveness of Linde logistic trains arises from the standardization of the material flow, increased safety for personnel and materials, and the variety of applications that the trailer modules can handle, allowing any imaginable load or goods to be transported—whether pallets, skeleton boxes, or individual items. All Linde logistic train models are characterized by their high tipping and directional stability, and small turning circles.
Linde’s LT10 – LT20 logistic trains are an efficient solution for bundling horizontal transports of large quantities of materials over longer distances, for example from a warehouse to several production lines. The three frame variants, C-Frames, B-Frames, and B-Frames with middle support can hold up to 2,000 kilograms, 1,000 kilograms, and 1,600 kilograms respectively, and offer the flexibility to combine different loads on one train. Whether pallets, grid boxes or small load carriers, transport goods of up to 2,000 kilograms per frame are maneuvered quickly, nimbly and with stability, even through narrow aisles and tight curves. The frames can be towed by either a manual or an automated tractor. Linde supports its customers with an optional tugger train guiding system for integration into digitally controlled processes and to ensure efficient use of the trains.
No matter whether you work in chemistry, pharmaceuticals, food, logistics or recycling, potentially explosive mixtures of gases, vapors and dust are created in numerous industries. Industrial trucks that are used in these hazardous zones must guarantee comprehensive explosion protection. At the same time, they need to be just as efficient and ergonomic as in any other area of intralogistics.
Explosion protection from Linde Material Handling is geared towards precisely these requirements. Suitable explosion-proof versions are available for numerous counterbalanced trucks, reach trucks, pallet stackers and pallet trucks. They comply with EU regulations (EN 1755) and the ATEX Directive (2014/34/EU). Linde can provide the right truck solution tailored to the relevant processes. This means that the material flow can be processed with a high handling capacity and level of ergonomics even in explosion-protected conditions.
Every company has its own individual needs and basic requirements, whether financial resources, business processes, general technology and safety standards, infrastructure or IT systems. Each type of use requires something different from products and solutions.
Well-designed products and solutions that meet one hundred percent of a company's own individual requirements are Linde Material Handling's strength, whether customer-specific truck solutions, fleet management and automation, leased- and used-vehicle business, financing and service packages, or advice on material flow planning, fleet optimization or safety.
