Readers might have noticed the absence of special features in the recent months. We have re-examined our editorial features with a view to ensuring they meet industry needs. And with that in mind, we’ll publish the first of our next-generation reports on June 21, with an in-depth look at heavy lifts in Australia. The feature is being researched in co-operation with a number of industry leaders.
You’ll find some details below. And if you’re interested in participating in that report - or any future ones, please follow the links in the notice at the bottom of the screen.
