Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
This week's news comes to you from Atlanta, Georgia where Forkliftaction News is attending the MODEX show.
It's hard to escape the irony of materials handling and logistics experts from around the world coming together at a time when the country hosting the event is working on international trade restrictions. So, we have a group of people committed to overcoming the challenges of moving things around discussing efficiency improvements while the USA is looking at making it much harder for some people to move some materials across its borders.
But it's clear from the conversations on the trade show floor that no-one wants trade wars - not least those innovative American suppliers who would like continued access to their foreign markets.
We'll include a full report on the show in next week's newsletter.

"It does pose a problem. We have had this happen on a number of occasions over the last 4 years. Our problem is unique because our units have a custom emergency stop on top of the cabin. It stops the truck if raised and contacts a rack cross beam. We where having drivers smash the control valve on top of the cabin and causing damage to the valve and piping. The emergency trip stops this but stops the operator from operating the unit.".
