Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
This week's newsletter has a strong financial flavour as the big players continue to report on their earnings. The results, overall, are positive, with lots of black ink. More importantly, there is plenty of optimism for the year ahead.
Speaking of positive sentiment, ForkliftAction Media, the publisher of this newsletter, is showing some of its market confidence, announcing the impending launch of a new, user-friendly, global online equipment marketplace for forklifts and other equipment. We reveal some of the details this week.
And also this week, we start a new feature called "Five Questions With ...", where we speak to industry leaders about the state of the market and new developments.

"The old school Toyota, Linde, Hyster etc are very quickly realising that they are losing sales because of the electronic fitted to the machines. That's why Hyster/Yale have got the new SIMPLE machine on the market. The best truck in the world 20 + years ago was the Linde 351 air cooled, no ECU's, Hydrostatic transmission ETC. But I thing they lost there way.".

"I read recently on social media that Kalmar is trying to renew their U.S. government contract for making container handlers. I find it very interesting that the Department of Defense is giving contracts to European companies. Isn't there any companies who can build these trucks in America?".
