When the results of the Brexit referendum emerged in June 2016, most in the materials handling industry took a wait-and-see approach.
Many hoped that, somehow, the result would be overturned.
That, however, was not the case and the process is now well and truly under way, with Britain this week formally filing Article 50, a letter to the European Union giving notice of the United Kingdom's intention to leave the EU.
All attention now shifts to the prospect of a new trade deal with Europe which will be crucial not only for equipment exports to Europe, but equally imports from the continent.
We'll be watching with interest ...

"I have just swapped an ESM on an EASI-OPC30TT Serial EASI-96 AJ16728 and now i am getting a code 2E at start up followed by a code FG. Any ideas?".

"Same variance between battery specialists and equipment providers who like to capture battery PM/ repairs in house. In general I would estimate a range of $20-40 for a battery PM that includes readings, inspections, watering system and maybe wipe down of acid. That range would jump up to $40-$75 per battery if it included the above plus some pressurized cleaning and waste water capture. More if you only do it once, some discount if you commit to 2-4 times per year. ".

"When China grows up these years, we will find more and more Chinese go shopping abroad directly or buying foreign brand things through Internet....More and more people are focus on quality not only limited to price. There is no doubt that foreign brand MHE products quality is much better than China ones, of course with much higher price and maintenance cost. ".
