YOYO MultiDrops has been shortlisted under the Innovation Award category in the 2021 What Van? Awards.
The YOYO MultiDrops system transforms a 3.5t/4.25t chassis into a multi-use, multi-role vehicle, allowing body types to be changed, picked up or dropped off, floor level loading and freeing the cab for other work, adding to buyers’ eco-credentials. The system will also ease the purchase of electric vans as the bodies can be swapped and changed when new models come along.
Mike Huntriss, CEO of YOYO MultiDrops added; “These are exciting times at YOYO MultiDrops and we are incredibly pleased to be shortlisted by What Van?
“We are expanding the team here, looking for further investment and will be featured in a SkyTV programme in December on Green Technology in Transportation as we move from the innovation, proven technology and manufacture stages to UK sales. This couldn’t have come at a better time.”
YOYO MultiDrops is one of five organisations to be shortlisted. Winners are to be announced on December 10.
In other news, eVan guru Brian Bachelor, previously Group Corporate General Manager at West Way Nissan, has joined YOYO MultiDrops Ltd. as a Director to spearhead YOYO MultiDrops’ growth and sales.
About YOYO MultiDrops
YOYO MultiDrops is a revolutionary system that transforms a 3.5t/4.25t chassis into a multi-use, multi-role vehicle, capable of being used in mixed fleets with unlimited types of bodies. The unique system enables loads to be lowered to ground level and exchanged with minimum delay.
The YOYO system has undergone rigorous in house and third party testing, in line with British and European standards and directives. Type Approval is not required, as the load frame is deemed to be a payload. This frees the converter from the expense of approval schemes or the delay of an IVA.
Lifting and lowering is controlled by a single operator, usually the driver, via a two button handset, obviating the need for additional on-site lifting equipment. YOYO is non-hydraulic, robust and simple to use.
The patented system is self-monitoring to ensure safe operation in a smooth, controlled action and comes with a host of additional safety features. This leaves users free to monitor their surroundings for potential hazards.
Retro-fits are easy on commercial vehicles up to 5 years old, making them suitable for existing fleets. As a fleet changes, existing load frames can be reused on new vehicles, thereby facilitating cost-effective business expansion.
