Inside Forkliftaction
This week's news comes to you from Hannover, where editor Allan Leibowitz is on jury duty for the 2020 edition of the IFOY (international forklift and materials handling solutions of the year) awards - and the preview of what used to be CeMAT but is now part of the Hannover Messe exhibition.
Adverse weather conditions in Europe made it a demanding journey, with a nine-hour delay in Singapore and an afternoon of cancelled connections from Munich.
Travel is an essential part of global business these days, but our experience as a result of a couple of days of extreme weather is a reminder of how we have come to rely on efficient airline operations - and how easily the system breaks down when things go wrong.
One can only imagine how this kind of transport turmoil would have affected the two giant European trade shows next month and the Modex Show in the US. And that's before we even consider the impact of the coronavirus threat which has authorities on high alert at major airports around the world.
It's not a great time to be travelling!
