The new Materials Handling Index (MHI) has been a huge success and we are overwhelmed with the response from the Forkliftaction.com community. Every day more forklift users worldwide gather contact details from the extensive database of member companies. Due to the healthy response, businesses will now be listed, in one MHI category per business address, free. Companies can purchase additional business categories, maximising exposure to potential sales, for a nominal annual fee per listing. Early statistics show that the optional higher-ranking Priority Listings, which feature a company logo, a service summary, a website link and complete contact details, attract 20 times more traffic than basic listings. For more information, contact Penryn Maddrell, Forkliftaction.com's marketing consultant, by email on pm-marketing@forkliftaction.com or by phone on +61 7 3358 4354. This week Forkliftaction.com's research team has revised the specifications contained in the Equipment Catalogue for Sellick, Toyota and Yale. If you deal with these brands, please check our entries and contact Rodger Lamb if changes are required.
