This week's newsletter comes to you from Europe, where I was judging the international forklift of the year. The judging process brought together a number of logistics journalists, mostly from Europe, and dozens of industry insiders who were either manufacturers or advisors. And the big topic of conversation was Brexit.
Hard or soft, Brexit will certainly impact on manufacturers, dealers and end-users - whether it be through taxes and duties, customs arrangements or supply chain disruptions.
We're watching the situation closely and will report on the issues next week.
Meanwhile, here's the latest news from around the materials handling world.
