Editor Allan Leibowitz comments on the news of the week
Sometimes, we can't see the big picture and we need a bit of perspective. This week, that insight comes from the International Monetary Fund, which is upbeat about its growth projections for the global economy.
The latest IMF outlook notes that "there is now no question mark over the world economy's gain in momentum".
The global lender is most buoyed about trade growth, which it sees as entering its "broadest synchronised upswing" of the last decade. Growth is tipped for 4% in 2017/8.
This optimism should be reflected in the next round of financial reports from the major materials handling businesses, with reports expected to appear from next week.
When the premier manufacturing and supply chain trade event of 2023, ProMat, returns to Chicago on March 20, it will include over 1000 exhibits and a comprehensive Educational Conference of over 150 sessions.
With its new sit-on stackers, Cat® Lift Trucks is again encouraging businesses to look beyond the usual materials handling solutions.
