    "ELETRUCK" turret trucks of Mitsubishi Logisnext Co., Ltd. account for 70% (approximately 1,000 units) of the approximately 1,500 turret trucks in operation at Toyosu Market. Toyosu Market has been attracting a lot of attention in recent years, and turret trucks operating there have also received a great deal of media exposure. However, competitors have launched new models that are superior to our products in terms of performance and have begun to introduce them to Toyosu Market. Since turret trucks are mainly leased, there was a risk of losing business opportunities if we did not have our new models in time for the next lease contract renewal timing, so we needed to develop a turret truck that had a slope climbing speed equal to or faster than our competitor products, which is a market requirement, in a short period of time. This report introduces a new type of high-speed climbing turret truck we have developed.
