Bravo Series 3-Wheel Forklift

Godrej Material Handling, a business unit of Godrej & Boyce Mfg. Co. Limited, has announced its foray into the 3-wheel electric forklift truck segment. The country’s largest manufacturer of lift trucks, GMH has launched the latest three-wheel electric variant of its Bravo Forklift Truck for the 1.6 to 2 tonne category. The Bravo has been entirely produced in India to meet the needs of the Indian market with an R&D effort of over two years. It is compact in size and offers the fastest travel speed of (15 km/hr) in the category. It offers the best-in-class turning radius (25 percent shorter than four-wheeled trucks) to deliver efficient operations. Most importantly, as standard feature, all 3-Wheel Bravo Forklifts come with the latest wet disc brakes which provide higher braking efficiency and reduce operator fatigue. Wet disc brakes ensure a long servicing interval of 6000 hrs making the truck more reliable and productive.

Anil Lingayat, executive vice president and business head, Godrej Material Handling said, “We believe in keeping our customers’ businesses in constant motion. Innovation has always been at the heart of what we do and we endeavor to make our products environmentally friendly. The cutting edge 3-Wheel Bravo series developed indigenously by us is reflective of this philosophy. Packed with the latest performance enhancing and safety features, we believe this product will set new standards for innovation and safety in its category. It will contribute to having greater efficiencies in warehouse operations. We expect this truck to be a great choice for all 3PL, warehouses and E-commerce companies.”

The three-wheel Bravo electric forklift advanced battery technology enables longer runtime. The Smart Curve Wheel Control technology detects turns and reduces speed by as much as 25% percent. This makes the truck stable and operator-friendly for maneuvering in tight and cramped spaces, thus providing enhanced safety. Its frame has been designed to have a lower center of gravity enabling it to lift loads upto a height of 6 meters. An interactive LCD display provides vital information to the operator like speed, temperature, movement, battery life and fault alerts.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
