About Forkliftaction Media

Staying on top of the ever-evolving landscape of materials handling is quite the challenge, unless you can find all the news and resources you need, all in the one place.

For 20+ years the team at Forkliftaction has worked to create such a place.

A place of value to everyone who works with materials handling equipment, from warehouse and fleet managers, business owners and forklift operators through to suppliers, dealers and manufacturers of forklifts and related equipment.

A single place where you can:

  • Access local and global news
  • Network and troubleshoot
  • Find suppliers or new job opportunities
  • Trade machinery online
  • Generate business leads and
  • Research future purchases

We aim to open the door to an active participation within the materials handling community, so that you can engage in conversations, contribute your knowledge and expertise, and find the tools and information you need to power your business.

I started Forkliftaction in 2000 after being in the forklift industry for 20 years and recognising a need for good quality materials handling news and information. I am very proud of what the Forkliftaction team has achieved in over 20 years of operation.
