This week’s newsletter is slightly thinner than usual. That’s because of the impending holiday season in North America, with Canada Day on July 1st and, across the border, of course, the 4th of July celebrations in the US. Our North American bureau chief is taking some time off - and so too, it seems, are many movers and shakers in the materials handling sector. But, as we see, there’s still plenty happening in Europe and Asia this week.
The geographic balance in the newsletter will, however, soon revert to normal - when the Americans have stopped holidaying. To them, happy 1st and 4th of July.
