Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
The growing importance of logistics was recognised at the recent inaugural Talent in Logistics event in the UK. Importantly, the new annual event is dedicated to the human aspects of logistics, recognising training, development and retention of the 2.2 million-plus people working in the industry.
It is notable that materials handling is a key focus of both the event and the accompanying awards, as we report this week.
Our congratulations go out to all the winners - and those who were nominated and selected as finalists. It is clear that the future is in very capable hands.

"Many companies hire from Temp Services. You can get warehouse and forklift experience by starting at a Temp Service. In our area some of the best jobs with high pay are hired permanently through a Temp Service. Remember that most companies aren't looking for the fastest operator but are looking at Safety minded Efficient Reliable Workers with a Good Attitude.".
