Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
One New Year’s message really stood out recently: “Genuine success comes only to those who are ready for it. So never step back and always have courage to accept new challenges. Wishing you a very happy new year 2016”.
The essence of this wish is not based on luck, but rather the notion that we make our own futures through our efforts and ability to deal with adversity.
Last year gave the materials handling sector plenty of opportunities to prevail over challenges and some companies have emerged stronger and more ready than ever to cope with whatever the future holds. Others have not coped so well, and all have paid the price in one way or another.
As we look to the year ahead, it is clear that we may not escape further challenges. We will all be tested.
All at hope that we - our own team, our readers, our supporters and the industry as a whole - overcome the obstacles, embrace the opportunities and continue to enjoy the spirit of co-operation that makes this endeavour so worthwhile.
Wishing you all a happy, healthy and prosperous 2016.

"No doubt there will be some streaming lining in production and sharing of R & D costs to reduce overall operational costs with the main goal to remain competitive in a competitive world market. If you snooze you will lose. As I often say no customer really wants to buy a lfit truck & continue to finds ways to reduce their fleet size until the do they have to buy (rent, lease, etc.) one. And there are more brands entering the market - some are just rebadged brands mainly from China.".

"If the fork cross section is less than the larger (longer forks) that may be the difference. In additions the "chemistry" of the forks metal may cause a reduced capacity (i.e. low or high carbon steel) - this can change from fork manufacturer to manufacturer How forges are made (fully forged or other wise) can make a difference as well. In a nutshell, not all forks are a like and they can be the weakest link that determine the capacity rating.".
