There are a couple of interesting predictions about the future of the industry in this week’s newsletter. On the one hand, Jungheinrich is tipping a 2% sales fall this year, after a 3% slide in global first-half sales.
Western European sales fell 9%, and at the other extreme, the North American market grew by 9%.
Meanwhile, another survey expects global demand for materials handling products to climb 4% annually until 2016. But even there, the predictions are for uneven performance. The World Material Handling Products study sees automated conveyors and automated guided vehicles as the major growth areas.

|"If you find yourself being told by an equipment dealer that your equipment will not be warrantied if someone else performs the maintenance on the equipment in question, then ask them what the Federal Trade Commission has to say about it. There is no particular regulation on forklifts, but I'm sure the same business ethics apply to the Material Handling Industry as to the person buying a $40,000 car.".|
