Normally produced in Brisbane, Australia before being shared with a global audience, this time, the editorial content comes to you from Hannover. Our editor is currently in Germany to judge the international forklift of the year (IFOY) competition in a process that involves a number of logistics and materials handling journalists and editors from around the globe.
