Now hosted by UKMHA, the Archies offers an enhanced range of categories, and is set to be the most inclusive and representative event yet.

In a glittering Oscars-style ceremony a capacity crowd drawn from the entire spectrum of the materials handling industry will pay tribute to the companies, teams and individuals who have done so much to innovate, raise standards and help truck users work more effectively and in greater safety.

Here are this year’s finalists:


Safety Manufacturer Product


Gena Operating System with InfoLink

The Gena® operating system optimises performance by making crucial information available easy to see, understand and use in 25 selectable languages via a 7-inch colour touchscreen.


Smart Bumper option for Linde T14-T20 pedestrian pallet trucks

Linde’s Smart Bumper option increases operator safety when operating in tight corners particularly when using the creep speed button which allows manoeuvring with the tiller vertical.


Descent Speed Regulation (DSR) assistance system

The DRS system on the LXT 120-350 tractor measures both load and angle of a gradient, automatically or manually limiting the speed for greater safety on ramps.


Combi-FSE (four wheel electric side loader)

The battery on this sideloader is now under the platform, enhancing visibility and safety by offering clear sight lines to the rear of the truck while reversing.

Safety Ancillary Product

Hoppecke Industrial Batteries

Full maintenance and operational instructions

A QR code allows operators to access best practice guidance for operation and maintenance of lead acid batteries, reducing risk of explosions, acid burns and fume inhalation.

FB Chain

Professional Fork Wear Gauge

The Fork Wear Gauge measures the wear on forks and indicates how much usable working life remains in one precise reading, saving time during safety inspections.

B&B Attachments

BlockMaster TK45-TEL

The TK45-TEL attachment allows block products to be safely loaded, eliminating additional manual handling on-site and reducing the risk of accidents.

ELOKON (Wayfair/Linde)

Laser and Ultra-wideband Detection System

This ELEKON system keeps pedestrians safe by combining laser and ultra-wideband technologies to detect and monitor the presence of people, objects and industrial vehicles.

Safe Site Award

Howdens & RTITB


The Bury Black Pudding Company

Kingsland Drinks

Wayfair (ELOKON/Linde)


Innovation Manufacturer Product


NexX reach truck

Designed for heavy duties in tight spaces, the NexX compact reach truck features 360° endless steering for quick direction changes and consistent directional stability.

Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks

Mitsubishi EDiA XL FB40-55(C)N(H) Series

Unique, patent-pending* features make this the perfect diesel replacement including electric differential lock* and AutoBoost* which automatically increases torque on ramps to prevent power drop-off.


COMBi-MR4 (Dynamic 360°)

This unique Dynamic control system provides 360° rotation on each wheel, enabling seamless directional change, including forward, sideward and crab steer while on the move.


Gena® Operating System with InfoLink

The Gena® operating system is intuitive, customisable and interactive, establishing a new benchmark in operator experience and is as easy-to-use as a smartphone.



The MOFFETT E5 truck-mounted forklift can be extended at greater speeds than competitors, making it easier to load from one side. Four-way steering ensures go-anywhere traction.


Descent Speed Regulation (DSR) assistance system

The Descent Speed Regulation (DSR) assistance system for the LXT 120-350 tractor series actively assesses the hydraulic operating brake. The system will measure the load and the angle of the gradient, and automatically or manually limits the speed of the vehicle, depending on which of the operating modes is used.


Linde X20-X35 X range electric counterbalance trucks

A new generation electric motor delivers the performance, power and durability of IC trucks with the dynamism, flexibility, and freedom from emissions of electric trucks.

Innovation Ancillary Product

Transmon Engineering

UVC In-Cabin Sanitisation

This In-Cabin Sanitisation system employs UVC light to quickly, consistently and effectively cleanse a vehicle or forklift cab, protecting the workforce in a sustainable and efficient way.

Philadelphia Scientific

Critical Alert Service

The Critical Alert Service sends automated warnings to help owners identify harmful situations within a battery room and enables them to optimise performance and minimise running costs.



PhoeniX – fully electric steering

With fully electric steering, the operating times of the PhoeniX series can be significantly extended while energy consumption can be reduced by up to 85%.

Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks

Mitsubishi EDiA XL FB40-55(C)N(H) Series

The quietest and most energy-efficient truck in its class, EDiA XL cuts noise pollution and eliminates emissions whilst delivering all the power of a diesel truck – even on ramps.

Bendi ECO articulated forklift

The articulated Bendi ECO reduces a company’s carbon footprint by utilising a recycled chassis. New masts are fitted along with other brand-new parts including AC technology.



Combi-FSE four wheel electric sideloader

Front wheel sensors detect the angle and direction of steer, controlling the speed of each rear wheel for a tighter turning radius, reduced tyre wear and continuous traction control.


Linde H35-H50/600 engine counterbalance trucks

Designed around the driver’s needs, these trucks offer greater headroom, improved visibility and low vibrations. Drive and control systems make it precise and intuitive to use.


Hyster® A Series lift truck
