With our high rack stackers, you can stack pallets or pick individual articles with consummate ease. They impress with their throughput performance and space utilisation – both significant advantages in the face of growing costs and product variety in the world of logistics.
If you value powerful performance, you will definitely be impressed by our electric high rack stackers: Thanks to energy recovery and effective energy management, you can easily use the stackers for two shifts under normal operation without having to change the battery. In addition, the well arranged cab provides your employees with a generous workspace. Large storage facilities and a clear view make for light work, as does the height- and tilt-adjustable control panel. The safety of your employees is also assured by our high rack stackers: All models feature an integrated personal protection system to satisfy the highest safety standards.
Are you looking for a high rack stacker designed specifically for use in the medium and upper high rack sector? Then our narrow-aisle trucks are the perfect solution. They set new benchmarks with regard to flexibility, ergonomics and cost-effectiveness and ensure maximum throughput performance in narrow aisles. Thanks to their mechanical and inductive wire guidance, the narrow-aisle trucks operate very closely to the racks, which enables high travel and lift speeds while also reducing the strain on the operator. Depending on the circumstances and requirements of your warehouse, you can also enhance your high rack stackers with additional performance modules for the utmost flexibility. With over five million configuration options, our modular system not only ensures flexibility, but also optimum adaptation to your individual storage systems.
Thanks to the integrated RFID transponder technology, our high rack stackers inform you that "You have reached your destination" after every journey. This sophisticated warehouse navigation directs your trucks to the pallet locations with perfect precision. The warehouse management transmits all transport and picking orders directly to the truck terminal via radio data. The high rack stacker then identifies the next target location based on the X, Y and Z coordinates, allowing you to approach the relevant rack semi-automatically. The travel and lift directions are indicated on the display and the truck automatically approaches the right position with millimetre precision when the functions are confirmed.
When your reach truck reaches its limits and you need to maximise use of space in your warehouse, Jungheinrich’s VNA trucks are the answer.
With narrow aisle operation and the ability to stack and pick at extreme heights, your business can now operate at ever higher levels of efficiency.
To fully realise how our VNA’s advantages stack up against a reach truck, takea look at our comparison guide. With man-up and man-down, manual, semi automaticand fully automated options Jungheinrich can get your business operating on the next level.
While reach trucks can achieve a huge amount with regards stacking and picking in restricted spaces, they cannot compete with VNA trucks which are designed and optimised to operate in a specific warehouse setup.
VNA can be designed for manual operation but often are semi-automatic and increasingly ‘fully-automated’ as technology moves towards less human intervention. A ‘man-down’ VNA truck has a rotating mast, making pallet retrieval easy and can operate in a wide variety of situations, including warehouses, loading bays and open areas. ‘A man-up’ VNA places the operator in a telescoping platform, enabling them to get close to the stacking and picking activity. These ‘man-up’ VNA are perfect for high density warehouse storage situations and often work with guidance systems built into the warehouse floor, making navigation simple and controllable.
There are now even more options to put you in control of a Jungheinrich VNA fleet.
Let us work with you to plan your investment and advise on where a rental option or refurbished option would be more beneficial to your business and show you where savings can be made.
Manual, semi-automatic and fully automated. See the advantages of each type of VNA truck below. Whatever you select for your operation, beassured that you can scale-up at any point in the trucks lifecycle.

The task for Jungheinrich
• Increase logistic system’s efficiency without changing the warehouse system or WMS
• Maintain the very low error rates
• Achieve a standard driver productivity level
• Alleviate driver stress
EKX high rack stacker with warehouse navigation RFID transponders in the ground continually supply the trucks with location details. Stacking/retrieval orders received from the WMS are sent via the logistic interface on the truck terminal directly to the truck controller. This means the truck knows the exact position to approach. The driver only has to give the travel and lift commands. The truck approaches the required pallet location to the precise millimetre, performs the stacking/retrieval operations and then confirms the various control stages to the WMS. Fully automatically!
• Greater productivity throughout the entire logistic system
• Very high level of process safety with low error rates
• Easy integration
• Improved driver ergonomics matched by greater overall system robustness
"My drivers are ‘guided’ through the processes by the warehouse navigation."
Jungheinrich recently received a major order for more than 1,000 lithium-ion vehicles, the largest order ever awarded for vehicles fitted with lithium-ion batteries anywhere in the world - and the largest vehicle order volume in the company’s history. The global online retailer will employ these vehicles over the coming months in warehouses and distribution centres in Great Britain, France, Italy and Germany.More than 700 of these trucks will be VNA products operating in narrow aisle warehouses.
Steve Richmond, Director, Logistics Systems, Jungheinrich UK, says “Jungheinrich has worked hard to ensure that it responds to customer demand for more efficient and economical solutions and lithium-ion technology has played a huge part in that response. It’s great to see that our work has continued to see increased global demand as a result, and this order demonstrates the confidence our customers have in Jungheinrich’s ability to produce solutions that save time, money and resources, while improving health and safety.”
In comparison with conventional lead-acid batteries, lithium-ion technology results in a substantial increase in performance. Produced at the Jungheinrich plant in Norderstedt, Germany, the batteries can communicate with the vehicle as well as the charging device.
In addition to high performance, the advantages of lithium-ion technology include faster charging times,zero maintenance and a particularly long product life. The fast and short interim charging times enable the virtually continuous operation of fleets on a 24/7 basis. Not only is there no longer any need for time-consuming battery changes but since neither gases nor acid are emitted by lithium-ion batteries,special charging stations equipped with expensive exhaust systems are no longer necessary.
