Editor Allan Leibowitz comments on the news of the week
The "international" nature of this newsletter is demonstrated graphically this week. 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. And while part of the content is being delivered from Europe, the rest of the team back in Australia are all doing their part to ensure that this week's offering reaches our readers everywhere, on time. What did anyone do before the Internet, email and remote access?
