Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
It's a week of mixed messages, depending on which side of the Atlantic you call home.
The good news: MHEDA reports that new orders of materials handling equipment in the United States rose 10.5% in the 12 months to August, reaching USD34.8 billion.
The rising order levels come amid broader US industrial economic growth, according to the industry group.
Not-so-good news: BITA members' confidence has declined since Spring. Just over 20% of respondents felt less optimistic about general prospects for the coming 12 months.
It was not so long ago that the UK was soaring and the US struggling, and while the current situation is tough for local operators and for multinationals focused on the UK market, this again reinforces the need for diversity.

"When equipment breaks down, you need the manufacturer to be able to support it directly. Of course a good account manager could. Manage this for you, but they are very few and far between, there is nothing like ringing the top man in the business. If your issues are not getting resolved.".

"If a load appears to be stacked unsafely and in danger of collapse. What are the steps that can help?".
suman_v, India
"Now we have something called Caspa, a system that apparently our customers wanted so that they can log onto to, and find out where and when an engineer is going to be on site . I've asked several customers about it and what a shock ! None of them have heard of it and commented " that they won't be using it " they want to speak to a person and have a name to fall back on.".
