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