Have you registered to attend MATEX 2008? Australia’s premier materials handling and warehousing exhibition, MATEX will be celebrating their 25th anniversary in April and the 2008 event will feature the grand finals of the GREAT FORK OFF on the 17th of April.

The Great Fork Off heat winners are...

Trevor Webb from Sydney markets
The Supply Chain and Logistics Association of Australia (SCLAA) have recognised that today’s forklift operators are likely to become tomorrow’s Managers and are keen to work with both practitioners and professionals in Supply Chain and Logistics management. Every aspect of the Supply Chain requires the use of a forklift to perform a moving task somewhere every second.

With this the SCLAA have organised a National competition to identify the best male and female forklift operator in Australia. The competition is based on skill and the safe operation of a forklift; not on speed as many have wanted. The new Hyster forklifts used for this competition are a pleasure to drive.

NSW Winners
Trevor Webb from Sydney markets and Karley Townsend from Display & Storage were the best operators in the Sydney heat.
Angela Mulloy from Pacific Brands

Queensland Winners
The winners of the Queensland heat are Angela Mulloy from Pacific Brands and William Fall from Linfox Heathwood NDC.

All finalists will compete in the ‘Great Fork-Off’ on the 17th of April at Homebush, in conjunction with the MATEX exhibition. The competition is sponsored by Hyster, Century Yuasa Batteries, SSI Schaefer Sydney and Warehouse Safety Solutions.

MATEX 2008 will be held as a three-day exhibition at the Sydney Showgrounds, Sydney Olympic Park, from the 15th to the 17th of April.

Exhibitors include: Forkliftaction.com. Toyota Materials Handling, SSI Schaefer International, Century Yuasa Batteries, Hyster, Materials Handling, Hubtex Australia, Karcher, Yale Asia Pacific, Red Australia, Metalsistem Australia, Manhattan Associates and many more.

In conjunction with MATEX 2008, the Supply Chain and Logistics Association of Australia (SCLAA) will be running a two-day conference designed specifically for the materials handling industry.

Supply Chain relevant and topical issues will be covered by the excellent panel of speakers. The SCLAA have two international speakers, one from New York and one from China. The Supply Chain industry sector covers many functional areas and the conference covers them all. The conference committee aimed to address each of these areas and provide a cost effective, value for money event to SCLAA Members and guests which is affordable for both practitioners and professionals.

MATEX 2008 is a not-to-be-missed event. Register to attend the exhibition and the conference today simply by logging on to www.matex.com.au
