Editor Allan Leibowitz comments on the news of the week
Lately, we have commented on two noticeable phenomena - the rise of warehouse automation and the number of new forklift models being pumped into the market. This week's newsletter reflects both of these themes which seem to have characterised our reporting for the year. So, while other sectors appear to be beset by challenges, materials handling just powers on. And on that note, while there may not be too much to be thankful for in 2020, we wish our American colleagues a happy thanksgiving. At this time of reflection, we should recognise the resilience of our industry and the willingness of the broader materials handling and logistics sector to step up in times of crisis. Thanks to all those who provided aid and assistance with the global disasters in the past year. Thanks to those who kept working while the world dealt with the coronavirus - to those who kept their heads down, their supply lines open and conducted business as usual.
