|Some weeks, the news is dominated by product launches. Sometimes, it's financial results.
This time, we seem to have a plethora of orders and fleet expansions. And that's interesting for two reasons. Firstly, it shows that there's activity in the markets. This is a good indicator of the financial health of the economy, with players in various industries and regions experiencing sufficient growth in their markets to justify new and ongoing investment.
But, for end-users, the value in these reports is seeing what other organisations are buying. Many use this information to guide their own equipment planning and like to see how machines are being deployed and how businesses are benefiting from their investments.
So, these reports are useful both to suppliers and to buyers - and we hope you find them interesting and beneficial.
