Doosan powers ahead at CV Show 2019
18 March 2019
Doosan, the leading manufacturer of robust high performance forklift trucks, will be exhibiting some of its latest products for the logistics sector at The Commercial Vehicle Show 2019 (hall 3A, stand 3D10), the UK’s largest and most comprehensive road transport event, to be held at the NEC, Birmingham, 30th April - 2nd May 2019.
Doosan will be showcasing two leading examples from its extensive range of robust, IC engine and electric powered counterbalance trucks – the 2.5 tonne capacity Doosan G25P-7 four-wheel LPG counterbalance model and the 2.0 tonne Doosan B20X-7 four-wheel electric counterbalance truck. Ideally suited to tough yard duties, both vehicles come with Doosan’s industry leading oil-cooled disc brake system as standard. Manufactured as completely sealed units the system is protected against outside elements, such as water, dust, dirt, shrink wrap and metal banding - ensuring top-rate braking performance, for enhanced safety and increased productivity in the yard.
In a sneak pre-launch preview, one of Doosan’s new 2.0 tonne walkie powered pallet trucks will be available to see on stand 3D10, offering an exciting glimpse into Doosan’s latest feature-rich warehouse truck range, soon to be released. Also to be seen for the first time will be a new Doosan electric hand pallet truck, available in 1.2 – 1.5 tonne capacities.
Brian Grady, Sales and Marketing Director for Doosan Industrial Vehicles UK, says: “The road transport sector is a primary focus for Doosan. We have a strong, robust range of heavy lifting trucks capable of meeting the diverse needs of the logistics market – from container stuffing to loading/unloading of vehicles. Our industry leading Doosan G2 diesel engine delivers the power to get the job done and our newly-launched electric heavy-lifting counterbalance trucks are just as able.”
He adds: “We’re delighted to have this opportunity to engage with logistics and road haulage businesses on ways of driving productivity and performance across their material handling operations – in the warehouse, on the loading-dock or out in the yard.”
Doosan has an extensive range of over 200 models of counterbalance, reach and warehouse trucks, with capacities spanning 1.3 to 25 tonne, over power sources of electric, gas and diesel. Everything a busy logistics business needs in terms of handling performance to keep goods moving efficiently and safely.

As an important part of the $21 billion global Doosan Group – a conglomerate with a 120-year history – the forklift truck division has the extensive resources needed to lead in product design, performance, ergonomics, energy and safety.
