Many Hyster® lift trucks have been supported by Shell oils and lubricants for a number of years to help keep tough equipment running in demanding industry applications. However, a new video featuring Hyster and Shell shows how the strong partners are also working together to support sustainability goals.
Filmed with Heffiq, the Hyster distribution partner in the Netherlands, the video explains why Hyster chose to work with Shell, how the partnership works, and reveals more about the collaborative approach to sustainability.
Carbon neutral engine oil
As explained in the video, for users in Europe, Hyster big trucks using Mercedes Benz engines are prefilled with carbon neutral engine oil (Rimula R6 LME 5W30) from Shell. Hyster has also started using the Shell carbon neutral engine oil Rimula R6 LME Plus at its factory in Craigavon, Northern Ireland, where diesel, LPG, and battery powered Hyster forklifts are manufactured.
At Hyster, we strongly believe in our philosophy “STRONG PARTNERS.TOUGH TRUCKS.™” which is why we select our partners very carefully. Shell has a pioneering approach towards sustainability which means that they are an excellent partner for us and indeed help us move towards a greener future. The approach Shell takes towards a more sustainable future is truly inspiring and supports our corporate and environmental objectives.
