I have had the opportunity to visit a small number of materials handling trade shows during the past years. The biggest ones I visited were CeMAT in Hannover-2002 and IMHX in Birmingham/UK-2004. They were both very well organised and of international caliber. I was wondering if any one could advice me on trade shows of the same international significance in the Americas, Asia or anywhere else? -

We recently exhibited at IMHX and found it to be a very good source of new customers and found the whole show of a very high standard in terms of the stands and the professional manner in which it was organised. There was however one drawback - the traffic congestion as a result of the show simultaneously running alongside Crufts!

The tyres that should be fitted really depends upon the application used and the loads carried. Our best products would be the Premia (Solid) and HPT (Pneumatic) as they have superior rubber compounds. However in order to provide you with an accurate solution we would need details on forklift truck make and model and load weight carried.

Crufts is the internationally renowned pedigree dog show. As for horrendous journeys to the show - normally it would take 1hr to get to the show from Gloucester but it took a total of 3 hrs! I have been advised that the IMHX show will not coincide with any major show in 2007 so traffic congestion should not be a problem.

Myself with FSIP recently exhibited at the MHIA NA2004 show in Cleveland OH, USA. The show was in the outskirts of town and traffic and transportation was fine. The show lasted 4 days so the first two days were well attended, but the last two days really started getting slow. As more of a service provider (Electronic Control Remanufacturing) we didn't get quite the traffic as persons showing new items. Look forward to Promat 2005 in Chicago.

I have found that the dealer in the respective country will have the best access to the serial number info. Atlas serial book is a pretty good source but i also agree with Mikael. Toyota is no longer making the frame fiche. This info and is keeping it on the computer.

What is the use of cheking the serial number. Do not compare with car industry, where serial is used for warranty check. Serial is primarely used for check of correct part on the machine.

Having visited both the IMHX in Birmingham and the NA2004in Cleveland, personally I believe that transportation services and venue location were certainly much better at NA2004 - however in regards to onsite amenities and quality of the exhibits I would have to rank the IMHX first.

From experience I have found SEEK to be the best - also they are global, certainly throught UK and Australasia and maybe US!, however not certain of this.

depending on the mfg/oem the serial has mutiple purposes. if the model is missing from the data tag the serial can be back referenced to identify the model, in addition the serial can verify certain options installed at the factory and many other factors

i also visited NA2004 and felt that it was nice and all but way too small. there was way too warehouse logistic companies there. and yet maybe i was looking for more forklift related booths. overall not real impressed

Does anyone know whats going on with Toyota and the dealers in central Florida?
I'm having a very difficult time getting parts for my fleet. Seems to be some disparities with some companies and quite a few lawsuits going on. Seems Toyota has lost focus on their customers. Anybody have any ideas?

I have been hearing about the those issues and it just doesnt sound good for the customer. You would think that it would be more important then dealership legal rights. Are you looking for parts support or service? If parts are what you are looking for then there are many options open for you. let me know if you are interested. the aftermarket is pretty strong for Toyota parts.

How are you dealing with the high cost of medical insurances, workers comp, etc? Are your employees paying for a portion of their cost?

Best source we have ever come across is the Atlas forklift serial number data book. Call 847 678 3450 for Atlas Lift Trucks in Chicago.

I am a Product Support Representative in Northern California. I checked in with our parts manager. He says we recieve 95% of the OEM parts we order from Toyota. The other 5% is either very new or old stuff from Japan.
If you would like let me know what type of parts you are not recieving. Maybe I can help.

Go for it, you will be surprised!

Thanks for your response.
Yes I am always looking for a trusted vendor that I can purchase from. At present we have 30 Toyota fleet. Mostly all series 6 and 7 #3000 and #5000 pound electric and LP sit down trucks. Toyota has been a real pain in the **** with all the games they have been playing with the local Dealers. I have spoke with the regional Rep but he is a yes sir man that just sits there and smiles when you ask questions. I've been a loyale Toyota customer for 25 years but now I believe it is time to move on.
I'll contact you in the near future to chat, thank you both.
