We report this week on the looming expiry of European anti-dumping measures for hand pallet trucks.
It's interesting that in an environment of free trade agreements and increased international commerce, anti-dumping measures are actually on the rise, according to industry monitors.
Surprisingly, India has the most restrictions, followed by the European Union, USA and China.
China, the target of the measures in our report, is the world's most targeted country for anti-dumping measures, followed by South Korea and Taiwan.

"The reason (IMHO) that the agriculture sector is making headway in this arena is because they have large lobbyist organizations (at least here in the US). The govt here actually taught farmers how to form CO-OP's to leverage themselves. They have govt support.".

"Just another update. Today found another truck leaking at o ring with 3200 hours on the clock. When removed they do not seem hard and are still pliable. When replaced , I use sealant on o ring. Never leak again.".
