Most in the materials handling sector are tired of the political to and fro over Brexit, with the deadline for Britain's departure from the European Union officially only days away.
Despite the political uncertainty, most of the industry players are ready for whatever lies ahead. As we report this week, many have stockpiled inventory in the UK to avoid both potential tariffs and possible customs delays.
If anything, we learn from our interviews that forklift folk are pragmatic people - and no matter what the days and weeks ahead present, they'll keep on keeping on.
